One of the most exhilarating and fascinating activities that someone could experience while visiting Gorj County is flying over the Carpathian Mountains and seeing these splendid landscapes from above! Paragliding is surely among the most extreme tourist activities and only the bravest venture into the skies. One of the best places to try paragliding in Romania is in Gorj, on the southern slopes of Parang Mountains, from Ranca Mountain Resort to the base of the mountain. During the warm seasons, if the weather is fair, you’ll almost always find daredevils floating peacefully through the clouds, descending from the heights of the Parang. If you are daring enough, there are also opportunities to arrange tandem descends, where travelers can marvel at the raw beauty of these lands.
