Paragliding and air sports in Taurus Mountain
Taurus Mountains, Turkish Toros Dağlari, mountain range in southern Turkey, a great chain running parallel to the Mediterranean coast. The system extends along a curve from Lake Egridir in the west to the upper reaches of the Euphrates River in the east. Aladağ (10,935 feet [3,333 m]) in the Taurus proper and Mount Erciyes in the outlying offshoot of the Nur Mountains are the highest peaks; many other peaks reach between 10,000 and 12,000 feet (3,000 to 3,700 m).
Scattered forests of pine, cedar, oak, and juniper are found on the slopes up to 8,000 feet (2,500 m). White limestone ridges are common, and in the western Taurus are many enclosed basins with lakes at elevations averaging 3,200 feet (1,000 m). Except for the large areas of deep-soiled fertile lands in the Cicilian Plain below Adana, the coastal plains to the south are small, and the entire region is thinly populated and isolated from the interior by mountain barriers. Of the passageways crossing the mountains, the Cilician Gates (Külek Boğazı) is the most famous, having been used by caravans and armies since antiquity. Nearby is the only railway line that crosses the Taurus proper, joining Kayseri with Adana. Mineral deposits, partly exploited, include silver, copper, lignite, zinc, iron, and arsenic.

“This was an unforgettable experience. You get a really nice overview of the city and all the pilots are so kind. I did it with 3 friends and a nice little detail is you get walkie talkies to talk to each other while paragliding which we found very cool. It’s more than worth the price!!” – Jolan L.
“I had a wonderful experience with Marcos and his staff. Marcos arranged for round trip transportation from Lara Beach to the take off area. Weather could not have been better. Davut, the pilot, was extremely confident and experienced. I felt very safe with him flying. The moment of take off is simply breathtaking. If you are going to try paragliding once, do it in Taurus Mountain, can’t beat the scenery.” – Magda C
