Paragliding is a new sport that has been introduced in Kenya. It entails participants running for a few meters down the scenic cliffs of Kerio Valley escarpment with a parachute-like equipment strapped on their backs. The glider’s apparatus open as they run down the cliff and since they are wind propelled, the gliders are good to go for the aerial expedition of Kerio Valley. This sport has attracted a huge number of international gliders mainly from Italy, Spain, France and Switzerland. Paragliding is a common event in the Alpine countries and the fact that Kerio Valley escarpment shares similar scenic rolling mountains, has made it a preferred option for this sport.
