Last year I wrote about the kick@ss "sport" of Parahawking, which combines paragliding with falconry. Practicers of this mostbad@ss of sports actually fly around with their birds of prey.

I just found a new video that combines stunning footage shot from two different paragliders as well as a on-bird camera mounted to one of the flyers avian companions.

If you find yourself in Nepal you can take a trip up with the flyers and birds through Himalayan Raptor Rescue.

Super rad.

Taking to the skies with birds of prey
Parahawkers fly thousands of feet off the ground and bring along their hawks, raptors, and other birds of prey companions.
