If you are in Kuala Lumpur this weekend starting today and visiting the KL Tower is on your itinerary, you would be in for a bonus! You would be able to catch this year's KL Tower International BASE Jump that will be taking place the next four days, starting today.

Last year's event saw 91 BASE jumpers from 17 countries completed over 2200 BASE jumps during the event. This year's event will see 100 jumpers over 4 days and 3 nights launching their jumps from the 421m KL Tower located at Bukit Nanas, downtown Kuala Lumpur.

The KL Tower International BASE Jump is the only time of the year when visitors are allowed up the tower where the jumpers take off from. A good chance for visitors to get the adrenaline rush of standing on top of the world. -

BASE jumping, also sometimes written as B.A.S.E. jumping, is an activity where participants jump from fixed objects and use a parachute to break their fall. "BASE" is an acronym that stands for four categories of fixed objects from which one can jump: Buildings, Antennas, Spans (bridges), and Earth (cliffs).
