    Landing area : For paraglider landing area is located in "Marlia" (LU) : this is a private property so greatest respect of enviroinment is essential: in this way you won't damage usual users of the area. Landing area is wide, without any problem; from the sky you will see a big meadow divided into two parts by a line of trees: you should land in the west side.

    Intermediate landings: there aren't any real intermediate landing; anyway , once flown over the firsth village (south direction) there are many fields of olive trees (quite short to avoid serious damage to pilot and paraglider in most case).BE CAREFUL: roughly in the middle of path takeoff-landing there is a football playground: we advise you against the landing in this area because is often in conditions of rotor; moreover an hig fence make the landing window very small.
