Macanal is a town in the Colombian Department of Boyacá. Located in Tenza Valley in the Eastern Ranges of the Colombian Andes at an altitude of 1,680. Enjoy the warm weather and a view out of a Jursassic Park movie.
It is a perfect place to train safely over water, with the mountain and take off 200 meters from the lake and constant wind. Soaring over the jungle to reach the best possible height is the warm-up to connect with your paraglider before starting the maneuvers. This is known to lead to better performance than winch take off.
