You can try the experience of flying over the city, flying in the clouds in the woods or by the sea, From below sea level in Marcaspio to the islands of Naz and Qeshm in the Persian Gulf, all year weather permitting. summer you can start taking off with the first breeze around 9.30, if the day allows it you can fly until around 20.00.
In flight you do not suffer from vertigo which is an “earthly” sensation. Being seated, one does not use the sense of balance; having no optical reference that connects us with the ground, there is no sense of depth, therefore it is IMPOSSIBLE to feel dizzy in the air.
One last thing: those who fly paragliders do not jump and do not launch but take off gently from a meadow, so nothing traumatic … YOU DON’T NEED TO HAVE ANY FLYING EXPERIENCE.
The pilot of the two-seater who will accompany you will take care of everything. You can safely enjoy the flight and you will also have your hands free to film or take pictures. No medical examination is required.
The essential thing is to be in good psycho-physical health, they can fly naturally with the presence of their parents, children from 6 years and people of a certain age.
The duration of the paragliding or hang-gliding flight without an engine is highly variable, depending on the location chosen, the time you take off and the weather conditions of the day. In the morning and late afternoon the flight is glided, absolutely calm and relaxing, depending on the take-off altitude it can last a minimum of 10/15 minutes. In the central hours of the day, the sunniest ones, conditions are created that your pilot can take advantage of to stay longer in the air, the flight will be a little more lively and can last up to 30/40 minutes.
The flight has different costs for various reasons. In free flight, the take-off altitude, the duration of the flight, the ascent service (shuttle), the making of videos or photos are affected. The fares are set by the pilots, sometimes there are promotions for couples but the important thing is that the price does not determine the quality of the service nor the safety of the flight. Pilots carrying passengers never take risks, safety is the primary objective of every flight.
– never fly on an empty stomach, a light and dry breakfast helps not to feel any nausea, a chewing gum helps the most sensitive.
– if you fly in the afternoon, pay particular attention to lunch, do not weigh yourself down too much.
– arrive rested, a flight after a night of partying is not the ideal condition to face this beautiful adventure.

Emam Zadeh Hashem (Mosha)
On the way to Amol on the Haraz road, after passing the Ab-e-Ali ski resort, continue to the Emam Zadeh Hashem shrine.
