Three experienced paragliding pilots, Thomas de Dorlodot, Horacio Llorens and Hernan Pitocco arrive in the Karakoram mountain range in Northern Pakistan aiming to break records. Follow them as they explore the legendary Karakoram Highway, seeking to break the world record for the highest altitude and longest distance Himalayan flight.
Their journey takes them deep into the mountain communities of Pakistan, where Thomas, Horacio and Hernan are welcomed by the local people, invited into a way of life that has existed for centuries. From the ground, these communities guide them and stand in awe as they soar above glorious peaks, the highest concentration of 7,000 meter peaks in the world.
Mixing sheer distance and height with astounding aerobatics the team revels in the freedom that these vast landscapes offer. As they fly cross country surrounded by alpine scenery and reaching distances of over 200km, it becomes apparent that in this remote corner of the world they have found some of the earth’s finest paragliding.

It will be the longest paragliding trip ever – they'll cover 1,800km in their bid to hike and fly across three mountain ranges, starting and finishing in Ancona, Italy, passing iconic mountains like Mt Blanc and the Grossglockner, before completing a 150km paramotor flight across the Adriatic from Zadar, Croatia

BIG Triangle FAI depuis chamonix de 216km
Ce matin je me lève tôt et me dit que c’est peut être LA journée fumante! LA journée à ressayer ce triangle que j’avais déjà bouclé l’année dernière avec Alexandre Jofresa (en plus cours) à savoir CHAMONIX – La Savoyarde – Parmelan – Chamonix.
Un grand tour autour des Bauges, Bornes et Aravis
J’appelle vite des copains pour leur demander de venir avec moi mais personne à part Caroline Thomas me répond.
Allez on se retrouve à Chamonix, il est 9 heures du mat et ils sont déjà à 3000m " je lui dis pour la bouger…
C’était faux mais ça l’a motivée, ce jour là les plafs étaient de 2500m le matin à Cham mais ça sortait dès 9h30 le matin. On décolle vers 10h15 et tout de suite ça monte et j’essaie de voler vite .
BIG FAI Triangle of 216km from Chamonix
This morning I get up early and told me that it is perhaps THE steaming day! THE day to try again this triangle that I had already completed last year with Alexandre Jofresa (more on the way) namely CHAMONIX - The Savoyard - Parmelan - Chamonix.
A grand tour around bauges, Terminals and Aravis
I quickly called some friends and asked them to come with me but nobody except Caroline Thomas replied.
Will we meet in Chamonix, it is 9:00 in the morning and they are already at 3000m I told him to move ...
It was wrong but it was reasoned that day were the plafs 2500m morning Cham but it came out at 9:30 in the morning. We take off around 10:15 and immediately it goes and I try to fly fast.
Felixin Rodriguez, finish the first of PWC Coeur de Savoie, and take the 1th world position....
