A View Of KL Skyline
A few weekends ago, Hubby and I had the opportunity to see base jumpers jumping from a building at a not-to-be-disclosed location in Kuala Lumpur.
BASE jumping, also sometimes written as B.A.S.E. jumping, is wingsuit flying from a fixed structure.
"BASE" is an acronym that stands for four categories of fixed objects from which one can jump: building, antenna, span, and earth (cliff). Due to the lower altitudes of the jumps, BASE jumping is significantly more dangerous than skydiving from a plane.

For the jump, we went up to the 53rd floor of a building which has a field nearby for the base jumpers to land on after their jump.
And we were able to witness a great 360 degrees of KL city view from there.

Would you dare to do it yourself?
