The People’s Committee of Sa Thay District reported on March 15 that as the third event of this kind, the tournament is part of the Culture and Tourism Week 2024 in Kon Tum.
The opening ceremony will take place at the historical site Chu Tan Kra High Point in Ya Xier commune.

Paragliders will compete in two categories of precise landing, and cross-country (XC) flying.

The tournament will offer a chance for competitors to earn more points on the World Paraglider Ranking System (WPRS) as the XC flying category has been upgraded to an international event.

It is expected to help Kon Tum popularise the image of local nature, culture, and people to both domestic and international visitors, thus promoting tourism development and attracting more tourists to the locality./.VNA
