  • Information
    Gangwon-do has it all—mountains, rivers, valleys, and the sea—and is a haven for travelers and those who enjoy leisure sports and activities.

    ‘Jangamsan Mountain Paragliding Field,’ located in Gangwon-do Pyeongchang, is known as the best paragliding spot in Korea, thanks to the area’s pristine natural environment. The direction of the wind and the altitude of the field enable people to enjoy paragliding all year round.

    Paragliders of all skill levels can find an appropriate flying program that will allow them to soar up in the sky and enjoy the beautiful scenery of downtown Pyeongchang and the Pyeongchang River. Only a 3-4 hour training session is enough for a simple flight. For more cautious flyers, there is even tandem paragliding (10-minute dual flight with a trainer). At the landing site along Pyeongchang River, people can also enjoy camping and swimming.


    Main Facilities
    * Paragliding Field: It covers an area of 600 pyeong located in Jangamsan Mountain, Pyeongchang-eup, Pyeongchang-gun. The 1,000 pyeong landing field at 759m altitude is located in Noramtteul, Pyeongchang on a riverside. Landing or taking-off is possible all year round when the weather conditions are good. Also, it has a great view and has no obstacles, perfect for beginners to professionals. Thanks to the enlargement of Yeongdong Expressway, it became more convenient to get there from Seoul or Gyeonggi-do.
