Having some free time to share some of my amazing experiences while waiting for my recently submitted PhD in Health Science thesis to be examined. Don't worry, nothing too technical to read here. Just enjoy the ride.

The current Bandar Jugra is a quaint, sleepy town that was once a royal town and the centre of British administration circa 1875. Bandar Jugra is easily accessible from the straits of Malacca and protected by the Jugra Hill, known for centuries as a navigation landmark for those traveling along the straits of Malacca.

However, when the colonial administration moved from Bandar Jugra to Klang and then eventually to Kuala Lumpur in 1880, Bandar Jugra quickly became a backwater. The lack of development in this area made for beautiful natural scenery especially if viewed from the top of Jugra Hill, or better, from a paraglide.

Located at the foothill of Jugra Hill is the paragliding flight park managed by Capt. (R) Ikhwan. Training is most necessary however, if you are not keen to fly alone, a tandem gliding is also available. If the weather do not seem promising, you can stay overnight at the flight park.
