Paragliding is quite a popular adventure sport around the world now. It a great chance for those who wants to enjoy a wonderful nature view while floating in the air. To go on a paraglide, you will have to set off from a high ground and from there, you can just leave everything to the instructor as he is the one who will be controlling the parachute. So please rest assure and enjoy your free fly alongside a professional paraglider.

4. Base jumping

Base jumping is another extreme sport that said to be more dangerous than skydiving because the time needed to open up the parachute is much shorter for base jumping. Instead of jumping off from high altitudes or sky, base jumper would jump from lower altitudes which is the buildings. So, it basically like suicide in an epic way. It may sound super exciting for adventure seeker but you may want to reconsider because your little heart may not be able to handle such extreme feelings.

P/s: Pray hard before you take off.

The previous activity may be too extreme for you so why not go for a bungie.  Bungee jumping is very commonly heard nowadays but there are still people who have yet brave themselves to give this bungee jump a shot. For bungie lover, I believe you must have heard of the extreme park which is situated right in the middle of Sunway Lagoon theme park. If you have not tried, believe me it easy. All you got to do is imagine yourself jumping off from a 9-storey building.

It not the same as wall climbing since the surface is more uneven and you have to find your way up the rock. It is not easy because you need to maintain a strong mentality and stamina when you are 50 ft away from the ground. You can rest assure as they take serious safety measures of the climbers and a rock climbing gear will definitely be provided. So it a great chance to overcome your fear for height and push yourself to the limits. Who knows you could be the next ‘spiderman'.
