Find a river that originates high in the mountains and follow it down. So far I have done the Jinsha, Indus, Blue Nile, Colorado, and a few others.
“Sounds kinda boring, what’s so fun about that?” you ask. The scenery is always epic, but there’s more. Rivers take some interesting paths down and around the mountains, which makes the flight feel like a bobsled or downhill mountain bike run at times. This kind of route also provides a more engaged flight experience because pilots cannot simply turn on autopilot and walk away. It really gets the adrenaline going!
Has anybody else done this? I highly recommend it! If you need help or suggestions, just ask.
✈Happy flying ✈
