Paragliding Event in the Heart of Romanian Mountains
SkyTribe XC 2014 takes place during the last April weekend with an alternative date 7-11 May in case of unfavourable weather. The event is held in the area of Retezat National Park, Clopotiva, a place where the SkyTribe pilots fly most of the year.
Clopotiva is one of the highest and most beautiful mountain ranges in Romania. The highest peak is Peleaga, with altitude of 2509 meters. Its peak can be reached fairly easy, crossing from Pelegii meadow, passing by Bucura lake (the largest glacial lake in Romania, covering a total surface area of almost 90 000 square meters) which can be admired in all its splendor from the Peleaga's top. The nearest town close to Clopotiva is Hateg, located in the Hateg valley, which is well suited for flatland flying when it’s cloudy up there. A good flying place suitable for both; beginners or more advanced pilots who want to fly over the beautiful natural reservations in Romania. A lot of flights are also performed over the mountain or in the plains - on the shoulder of ridges descending from the main ridge.
