About Sky Trial
Tandem Paragliding in Bald Mountain is one of the most spectacular places in Issyk-kul region to paraglide; it is located 15 km from Karakol City. Bald Mountain is the site that we fly from most because of its location, and the stunning views of the Ak-Suu area. Tandem paragliding is a great introduction into the sport, or just experiencing the joy of free flight. Flights last anywhere from 7-20mins, depending on the wind. Our driver can pick you up in Karakol City or you can come directly to Ak -Suu Village (you will be provided with directions to the flying point). Please remember that the best paragliding times are between 11 pm and 5pm.

I can't recommend this activity more highly, it is the perfect way to see the stunning mountains of Karakol. I went in winter and got see the snowy peaks all around me and sour up above the trees. You do need to wrap up warm, but the usual ski gear is sufficient to keep you nice and cosy up there. I flew with Marat, he made me feel totally safe and even did a few tricks up in the air which made it all the more exciting. After my flight I was taken to a outdoor ice rink to skate while they did flights for other people, it was lovely to be surrounded by trees and whiz about on the ice. However, if you can ski or snow board I'm sure you could do that while you wait instead, you certainly wont get board on this tour!

It was amazing experience in my life! My first time ever paragliding. It seems like very uneasy. But my fears gone away after 30 seconds. The stunning view of Karakol ski resort is FANTASTIC! My bucket list is filled with one more memorable day! Thanks to Marat, my scaring is gone forever! I highly recommend to fly! It's worthy!

My friends and I had an absolutely amazing paragliding experience with Sergei! He makes sure that the weather and wind conditions are good before confirming the tours, and guides you well for tandem paragliding. Would definitely recommend it to anyone looking to try paragliding! :)

My wife and I went and had an amazing time. The wind wasn't great the day we went and Sergei was really patient in waiting for the best possible conditions. He and his colleague clearly were focused on following a safety protocol and it really put us at ease to see their professionalism. Their effort, time and expertise far exceeded the cost they charged. Highly recommend. Thank you Sergei. Adnan and Samira

Paragliding with Sergei was a fantastic experience, so beatiful and calm. The views from up there cannot be described! For no extra charge he lend us his Go-Pro, from which we could upload to our phones afterwards. Besides all the hiking this is something you really must do while you are in Karakol!
