A paragliding pilot’s paradise…

Kobala is a popular paragliding and hang gliding take-off, as well as an excellent starting point for long cross-country flights on the southern crest of the Julian Alps and a well-known competition site.

With its setting of high Julian Alps peaks, Stol near Kobarid is a paragliding pilot’s paradise. Its over 20 km long panoramic ridge tops provide extraordinary opportunities for long cross-country flights and large-scale competitions.

Weather conditions: The ideal conditions are with a very weak general N or NE wind for cross-country flights and a weak SW wind for local flying. With the general SW wind and thermals, the wind usually intensifies quickly. As the highest takeoff in the Soča Valley, Kobariški Stol is often the only take-off above the inversion layer, providing opportunities for thermal flying.

There are several other less popular take-offs in the Soča Valley area: Mangartsko sedlo above Log pod Mangartom, Kanin, and Planja above the town of Bovec, Srednji vrh – Matajur and Kuk – Livek above the town of Kobarid.
