The view from take off point was nice 😍 while SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 was waiting for her turn (this photo📸refers). However, she has not ❌ personally tried the paragliding services after 2.5 hours of waiting at take off point😌

It was due to the miscommunication between Tourism Kedah & Gunung Jerai Paragliding Park Official team on the arrangement for this writers experience visit. Ended up a total of 8️⃣ writers, only 2️⃣ writers got to experience it 😭😭 Truly disappointing & sad 😞😢 for the rest of us after a long wait 😔
