Flying site

The Mountains of Sharr surrounding the city of Prizren from its South to North-East, and the great field of Kosova in front of these mountains offer superb conditions for Cross Country Paragliding.

Take-off site “CVILEN North Artan Venhari”, a large a easy take-off is at the altitude of 1360m above sea level, its location provides the best thermal conditions after midday. The city of Prizren located in front of take-off generates great thermals which offer possibility for easy takeoff and good thermals in the skies above Prizren and its surroundings.

It takes about 30 minutes of drive with any vehicle to the take-off area. The start is naturally grassy and clean without any trees or other obstacles.

The area around the take-off is known to be thermally with mild to moderate thermals, there are resident thermals immediately on the left and the right of the take-off, most of the times straight ahead too. Mountain flying by midday from this takeoff ensures pilots they will stay in air around the magnificent Sharr mountains until the flatland thermals kick off. Flying straight from takeoff easily reach the city of Prizren with the possibility to toward the Edges of Sharr mountains in Kosovo-Albania border, or mountain flight towards the north through Dolloc and Budakova peaks towards the other edge of Sharr mountains around Suhareka, whereas afternoon conditions offer great possibility for filed flying through the Kosova and Dukagjini fields towards the city of Gjakova or Peja.

Beside the official landing/s other landing options are countless on the great Kosova fields.

The City of Prizren is located on the South of Kosovo (on Kosovo - Albania border), it offers the most popular tourist attractions in the country and is very well known for its cultural heritage, tourist hospitality and offers great mountaineering resources for visitors.
