These photos by Hosein Ghazanfari show hand gliding enthusiasts in action over the skies of the megacity Tehran. Tehran, the capital and largest city of Iran, is a sprawling city at the foot of the Alborz mountain range. Tehran is famous for its numerous ski resorts on the Alborz slopes, large museums, art centers, and palace complexes. Tehran is the second largest city in the Middle East and is the second most populated city in South Western Asia with a population of 7,404,515 and approximately 15 million in Greater Tehran.

Hang gliding is an air sport in which a pilot flies a light and unmotorized foot-launchable aircraft called a hang glider. Most modern hang gliders are made of an aluminum alloy or composite-framed fabric wing.


The metropolis of Tehran houses about 10 million people.
