Like us others, Philippe and his friends are interested by Karakoram
but he likes especialy to traverse it with his paraglider. Quickly,
Philippe makes me discover his sport by flooding me with superb photographs
that I look full of admiration. Then very quickly, I propose him the
writing of a special page about paragliding practice and stories in
Karakoram, Philippe directs me towards the web site of his friends John
Silverster which, after having become a great mountaineer was one of
the first to try the adventure in Karakoram with his paraglider. The
writing of this new page was the fruit of an excellent common work between
Let discover Philippe and John through their photographs, their films
but also their impassioned comments about flight bivouac, the extreme
paragliding practise. Fly away with them in a flight to more than 7000
meters high, whirl to the top of the abysses, going through pass and
over the Karakoram summits with the only force of the wind and genius
I am conquered, tomorrow I buy a paraglider, and you ?!
