Paragliding - Les Chavants (les Houches) Landing Site
Pass the lift ticket desk for the Prarion Gondola, turn right at the roundabout and follow the metalled road to the end.
ORIENTATION AND CONDITIONS
As this site is in the lee once the valley wind is established (at around 11am), it is best early in the morning.
Altitude: 1010m. GPS: UTM 0327610 E – 5085185 N
Conditions for landing can be difficult once the valley wind is strong, so this site should be avoided later in the day. Landing is sometimes forbidden due to cropping – you must check the information boards to see if it is authorized. Do not enter the private, gravel road, nor the small track to the south of the landing field.
