Butterfly Valley from about 400-500m up

Dot Gordon who I met at launch on day 7 in Oludeniz - She is flying with Semih.

Mother and daughter - The family that run Oyster Residences (the poshest hotel in the resort) are all paragliders.
On my last day I was forced to use the 900m launch as the local truck drivers were boycotting the higher launches in protest at the rise in forestry charges from 15 to 20 lira - It was very busy up there
Splash landing - one for your caption competition maybe. Looks more like hanging your feet over the side of the boat! (Mark)
The approach to Butterfly Valley from the sea - If you have 600m+ over Lykia World you probably have plenty of height to fly around the headland and land on the beach
The Derin Gurbet - The ferry to & from Butterfly Valley and Oludeniz
There`s a relaxed vibe at Butterfly Valley - the only access is by boat, by air or by foot - last ferry out is at 5pm - if you miss it tents are available for the night.
