Back in the late 1800s, Jugra was the royal capital of Selangor; its well-preserved buildings are good examples of the artistry and grandeur of its glamorous past.

Today, Bukit Jugra or Jugra Hill is still very much a popular venue, albeit for different reasons. Its undulating terrain and scenic views make it an excellent spot for outdoor activities such as hiking and paragliding.

Like Tanjung Sepat, about 30 minutes away, Jugra is a popular stopover for food and is well known for ‘Beggar’s Chicken’, an ancient Chinese dish made by baking whole chickens and herbs wrapped in lotus leaves using traditional brick kilns.

Fun Fact

Based on historical records and documents such as The Oriental Navigator, a sailing handbook written in 1801, Bukit Jugra was known to foreign navigators and cartographers as Parcelar Hill.

Things to do

Paragliding

Paragliding in Jugra is conducted off the base of Bukit Jugra lighthouse, a towering structure built in 1976 that rises 146 meters above sea level.

Paragliding depends heavily on wind conditions, with March to September being the best time to soar through the air in Malaysia.
