Guests , who want to fly , are transferred from the hotel by comfortable vehicles and experienced drivers. Guests are met at the Escape office by the professional operations team, where registration is completed. The pilots carry out daily weather checks, after which the best departure point and flight route for the weather conditions are determined. Guests are then transported to the Mount Tahtalı cable car station, the greatest feature of mount.  Starting from 750m, the cable car carries 80 people on a 10 minute journey up to the summit at 2365 metres.
During this journey you will have the chance to see the cedar trees and wild animals that are unique to the region and once you reach the summit you then have the opportunity to see the unique panoramic view of the Mediterranean .

Our pilots; Turkish National Team athletes and paragliders are well-known, specialist, tandem pilots in the paragliding arena.

When appropriate weather conditions are met, in just a few steps, you will leave the mountain and open the wings to freedom.
