NDO – Paragliding performances were launched for the first time in Y Ty commune, Bat Xat district, Lao Cai province, on August 19, opening the series of activities in the Bat Xat Autumn Festival 2018.

The paragliding event attracted 30 athletes who love the sport from the Hanoi Paragliding Club and many provinces and cities throughout the country. The athletes parachuted from the top of Den Thang Mountain, flying through the Muong Hum and Sang Ma Sao valleys.

As one of the activities to celebrate the 73rd anniversary of the 1945 August Revolution (August 19), the festival also aims to promote the potential and development of new tourism products in the Bat Xat border district, which has become a famous destination among travellers. It is well-known for both its natural and human beauty.
