Spreetshoogte

Spreetshoogte Pass overlooks one of the most beautiful and majestic landscapes of Namibia - the Namib Desert.

Great flying was to be had here. We flew 2 out of 3 days both in the midday and late afternoon. A very thermic site with the added bonus of being top landable although if we did sink out the retreive vehicle was down to meet you just as you had finished packing. Very modest XC's of 25km were made although the site has clearly more to offer for those who dare.

The early evening soaring was fantastic, super smooth after the rowdy midday thermals.

Just soak in that view
