Flying with Condors
Report a problem
The condor, king of the Andes, has a wingspan of up to 4 meters, making it the biggest bird in the world that can actually take to the air. It lives in unspoilt mountain regions, far from human habitation, and in the mythology of the region it symbolises the superiority of the spirit and the hope of enlightenment. The condor is a master of flight, soaring majestically in vast circles high above the snow-covered Andes, 5000 metres above sea level. And now an English woman called Judy Leden, female world champion in hang gliding and paragliding, has embarked on a fascinating yet highly dangerous undertaking. She intends to climb into the air alongside the gigantic birds and gather information about their realm; to this day little is known about the life of the condor.
