Paragliding in Stepantsminda – Dedaena Peak

With its magnificent mountains and spellbinding scenery, Georgia offers plenty of opportunities for paragliding. One such location is Dedaena, a 3,493-meter high peak in Kazbegi municipality, eight kilometers from Gudauri, near Jvari Pass.


To get to Dedaena Peak, you should drive up the main Georgian Military Highway, after which you will have to walk up a short path. The path starts at 2,426 meters above sea level and climbs up to 3,101 meters, where you will find the take-off point.

At Dedaena, you can take a tandem or a solo flight. 

You will glide around the mountain before landing near the road, at a landing point set up in an open field. Flying at Dedaena is particularly interesting for people who love adventures.

The flight time is 20 to 25 minutes.


The best season to fly from Dedaena Mountain is summer.

Who Can Paraglide?

In order to fly, your body weight must be between 30 kilograms and 220 kilograms.

Minors may only glide with the permission of their parents.


It is recommended to fly with a pilot who received a tandem-pilot certification from the Paragliding School of Georgia. 

The pilot’s chair is equipped with a proper parachute. During the flight the pilot and the passenger wear helmets and should also wear sunglasses. You should take a light coat and apply sunscreen during the summer, but something warmer is definitely needed during the other seasons. You must wear closed sports shoes.

You can record the flight with a GoPro camera, which the pilots will also take care of. 

Before taking a tandem flight with a qualified pilot, the pilot will provide you with instructions on what to do.
