Most of us have little doubt in our minds, that Chengdu is a really great place to live – but the lack of blue sky days and places to adventure to – is something that can get you down. GoPara is a company that can quite literally lift you out of the Chengdu basin, and into the sky to get your adrenaline pumping…

For adventure seekers, or people looking for cool days out, paragliding could be your thing!

Wait, paragliding? Sounds a bit risky, right? You may think so, but contrary to popular belief, paragliding is a safe, highly regulated sport when done with proper specialized training…

Instructor Cici

…speaking of training, how can you find and trust a paragliding training school if you are just starting to think about paragliding? Meet Cici Teng from Gopara Paragliding School, is someone very passionate about this experience. She started paragliding in New Zealand in 2014 and got certifications from NZ and AFSC (China).

After her extensive training (over 7 years), she founded Gopara, the only professional paragliding school in western China, with all training and equipment meeting  international standards. Its her honor to share her love of paragliding, as well as the fun and laughter of life, with others!
