Pamukkale Hijacker Tandem Paragliding is an adventure sports company offering tandem paragliding, hanggliding and paramotor flights. Located in the beautiful Hierapolis-Pamukkale, passengers enjoy a magnificent view over the World Heritage Site area while flying with professional tandem pilots. Passengers do not need any training before flying, everybody can take off after a short briefing. Flying time is anything between 10-30 minutes depending on weather conditions and the whole adventure takes around an hour including pick-up.

Pamukkale, meaning “cotton castle” in Turkish, is a natural site in Denizli Province in southwestern Turkey. The city contains hot springs and travertines, terraces of carbonate minerals left by the flowing water. It is located in Turkey’s Inner Aegean region, in the River Menderes valley, which has a temperate climate for most of the year.

The ancient Greco-Roman and Byzantine city of Hierapolis was built on top of the white “castle” which is in total about 2,700 metres (8,860 ft) long, 600 m (1,970 ft) wide and 160 m (525 ft) high. It can be seen from the hills on the opposite side of the valley in the town of Denizli, 20 km away.
