Although Bukit Jugra (Jugra Hill) is not as high as Kuala Kubu Bharu’s Bukit Batu Pahat which is 1400-foot above sea level, many paragliders come here to fly.
In Malaysia, paragliding is a year-long sport but the wind is exceptionally strong in Bukit Jugra. Some pilots could soar for as long as thirty minutes in the air!
According to those who come here for the sport, the best time would be at around 11am. One would have to wait for the wind, not only to blow strong enough for flying, but also in the right direction! This could take hours, sometimes.
Bukit Jugra offers an exceptional view. There’s Sungai Langat (Langat River) and Pulau Carey (Carey Island) beyond that. There’s Selat Melaka (Strait of Malacca) beyond the horizon.
There are many paragliding clubs and associations that offer paragliding for those who wish to experience flying, for a fee, of course. One of them is Wing Over Paragliding Centre (formerly Zon Khatulistiwa Enterprise).
Otherwise, contact the Kuala Langat District Council to be linked up to an experienced pilot.
