    Introduction
    Paragliding is controlled by the power of body weight. Hang gliding and paragliding are both included in manpowered gliders, which refers to gliders weighing less than 50kg dead weight. Paragliding has the shortest history among air sports, but is the most popular manpower glider.

    Everyone can enjoy paragliding and after a 3-4 hours training course, participants can take off from a 50m steep hill. The total weight of the glide is just 10kg, light enough to carry on one’s back, and with very little danger if riders follow the proper precautions.

    Jangamsan Mountain Paragliding Field is located nearby the town of Pyeongchang-eup and the mountain is mainly comprised of stones so that people can enjoy a real thermal flight experience. The field is suitable for families who wish to enjoy camping with paragliding. The landing field is situated along Pyeongchanggang River, which is also available for swimming after the flight. The river is quite wide both upper stream and downstream, making it perfect for safety clinic education as well.
