Did you know that the oldest person to paraglide is Janusz Orlowski from Poland, and he was already at the ripe age of 91 years old?! Then, in 2020 an older man became the oldest person to paraglide tandem at the age of…???drum rolls…105 years old! Like what uncle Roger loves to say, Fuiyoh!!! This is why there is no excuse not to bring your father to paraglide (unless he got some illnesses that prevent him from doing so) because YOLO (you only live once).
Paragliding (in the air) takes approximately 10-20 minutes and it depends on the ⛅weather and wind conditions. There is no height and age limit for paragliding at Bukit Jugra. However, it’s a different case for weight. You need to weigh between 20kg to 110kg to paraglide, and if you weigh more than 85kg, an additional fee of RM50 will be charged.
Most of the time, you will need to wait for a strong wind to be able to take off, so do not be disappointed if you have to do it on another day. This is to provide you with one of the best paragliding experiences ever. Nonetheless, even if you are not able to take off on the designated day, you won’t be going home empty-handed. There are still things you can do around the take-off area, like hiking Bukit Jugra or trying out the famous Beggar's chicken at Bukit Jugra. Make sure to make a reservation in advance, and it’s highly non-halal.
For those who don’t know, Royal Selangor is a household name for quality pewters. It was founded in 1885 by Yong Koon in his humble shop called Ngeok Foh (Jade Peace). In 1992, the name was changed to Royal Selangor to reflect its endorsement from Sultan Salahuddin, the Sultan of Selangor.
At the Royal Selangor Visitor Centre, you get to watch live craftsmanship showcases, explore the museum, take an instagrammable photo with your dad at the world’s largest pewter tankard or even join a workshop and make your own pewter souvenir!

Maybe you can craft one for your father as a father’s day ?gift!
