Kurdistan

Backgammon while paragliding? Only in Kurdistan

By 6/8/2017
-

By Ahmad Sangawi

 

In a bid to promote tourism in the Kurdistan Region, two brothers are taking a unique approach to an already unique activity.


Several thousand meters above the ground they filmed themselves playing backgammon while paragliding.

While table games may not be for everyone, the brothers hope to encourage others to take up paragliding.

Sulaimani, nestled in the mountains, provides amazing views while in the controlled fall.

They say the weather in the skies of the Kurdistan Region are preferable to those in Oludeniz, Turkey.

So they not just did it for fun but to promote tourism in Kurdistan. Mashallah good work. Why politicians are not so eager for their country?

The airports have always been under ICAA jurisdiction so I don't see why they needed 4 months of a ban and 2 meetings to come to that agreement!!
