Participants Say Sabah Rates Among The World’s Best Paragliding Spots
At the recently concluded Paragliding Accuracy World Cup (PGAWC) event in Lohan Hill, Ranau, PGAWC chief judge Andika Mountnear said the venue was a success.
Lohan Hill in Ranau, Sabah was the alternative site for the first venue in the runup to the superfinals in Austria later this year. The event was initially planned for Puncak, Indonesia but had to be cancelled due to unfavorable wind conditions. Luckily, Lohan Hill with its mountainous terrain, plentiful take-off and landing sites, and most importantly, good year round winds.The event was sanctioned by Malaysia Sports Aviation Federation (MSAF), the local governing body for the sport of paragliding.
