Besides trekking, travelers who wants ultimate adrenaline rush, we have got Bungee Jumping for you. It is diving from a fixed location like a bridge, platform, crane and cliffs and breaking the fall with bungee cords attached to the ankles. Bungee jumping is relatively new in Nepal but you will be surprise to know that it is climbing the favorite destination chart within short span of time. The bungee jumping site in Nepal is situated in Bhote Koshi just a 3 hour drive from Kathmandu and near to Nepal- Tibet border. Bhote Koshi is one of the Nepal wildest rivers and it is also famous for rafting.
The bungee jumping at 160 m was designed by one of New Zealand’s leading bungee consultants and is operated by some of the most experienced jump masters in the business. Its mishap- proves that the agency takes safety “very, very seriously”. It is believe that Bungee jumping was born in Pentecost islands in the south Pacific but we cannot trace the birth of Bungee jumping. The ultimate Bungee Jumping Nepal takes place on a 166 meter wide steel suspension bridge. Swiss designed especially for bungee jumping with a 4x safety factor, the bridge has a loading factor of 250 kg per running meter. This means that the bridge will hold 250 x 166 = 41500 kg or 41.5 tons. And those are Swiss measurements! Over 6000 meters of steel wire is used to build the bridge that joins two sides of a beautiful valley.
