Flying over the sea of Da Nang, watching Son Tra season 'change clothes'

Translated by Bing
The end of April and the beginning of May is the time when Son Tra (Da Nang) enters the "changing clothes" season, with thousands of species of young trees blooming in all colors of green, yellow and red in a corner of the forest.

When the parachute left the landing site, soaring into the air, the corner of Son Tra forest that was "changing" with all kinds of vibrant colors gradually appeared in front of the eyes of visitors. The feeling of anxiety and nervousness at her initial height was replaced by excitement, bursting happiness. The feeling of watching the forest from above is different and wonderful. The moment of admiring the forest changing leaves, green red and yellow beautifully intertwined, deep blue beaches and modern Danang city in sight will be hard to forget.



At the end of April, the beginning of May, especially during the Hung Kings Commemoration holiday and 30/4 - 01/5, many tourists coming to Da Nang have sought to book an adventure sport experience in paragliding, to admire Son Tra peninsula in the "changing clothes" season, with thousands of species of young green blooming trees, yellow and red in a corner of the forest or vast beaches, beautiful from above. The cost of this experience is about 1.5 million VND/person and the flight time is about 15-20 minutes depending on weather conditions. This is the ideal time to paraglide in Da Nang.



From above, visitors can see the diverse and rich vegetation of Son Tra peninsula - a national nature reserve, the "green lung" of the city. Son Tra Peninsula (Tho Quang ward, Son Tra district) is located about 10 km northeast of Da Nang city center. This place has an area of more than 4,400 hectares, 13 km long with a circumference of about 60 km, an average altitude of 350 m, the highest is the peak of Oc nearly 700 m. With three sides bordering the sea and the other side bordering the city, Son Tra is the sum of the only natural forest ecosystem associated with the sea in Vietnam. At the end of April and the beginning of May, each patch of forest races to show off: crimson string phoenix, purple sim flowers, Han Mat forests (white soak), Ancient palms simultaneously change the color of leaves...



The twin pilots serving the experience are pilots who have hundreds of hours of flight experience, are professionally trained and have prestigious certificates. On average, a pilot can fly 5-6 flights per day. Visitors often book in advance with Son Tra Paragliding Club to ensure they do not have to wait too long.


This is an outdoor sport that is heavily influenced by weather factors, so the pilot team has not met all the needs of visitors. On the flight journey, visitors can see many famous works of the city such as the statue of Bodhisattva Quan The Yin in Linh Ung Pagoda, the view of Buu Dai Son Pagoda ..



The best time to see Son Tra by paragliding is at sunrise or sunset - the time of transition between day and night, morning and evening. "This is a place where mountains and forests and the sea meet, rarely available anywhere," Mr. Huan said. In the photo, Mr. Huan displays a Paramotor (motorized paraglider). Currently, this form only flies to train students, serve festival performances, not fly for visitors to experience.
