It has been observed that the Shai Osudoku Hills make a good skyline for paragliding activities.

The number of paragliding places in Ghana will rise to two as a result. It is up to the Ghana Tourism Authority to further develop this resource into a domestic tourism destination, according to Captain Ed Stein, the man behind the Kwahu Paragliding Festival.
