Bunjee Jump In Nepal
Bungee Jump in Nepal is one of the most popular adventure activities after trekking and mountain expedition. The country offers the third highest Bungee Jump in the world, and it is the most spectacular. For many people, hurling themselves off a stable platform into a 500ft (160m) gorge is a kind of holiday adventure. This amazing drop into the Bhoti Kosi River gorge on the Nepal/Tibet border is the longest free-fall in the world. The gorge sides are lush with vegetation and jagged rocks which give the adventure seekers an ultimate adrenaline experience.
Location: Less than 3 hours outside Kathmandu to Bungee Shuttle. You will travel the Arniko (Kathmandu/Lhasa) Highway to within 12km of the Tibet Border and the famous Friendship Bridge.
Bungee Bridge: Swiss designed, especially for bungee jumping with a 4x safety factor. The bridge has a loading factor of 250kg per running meter. This means that the bridge will hold 250 x 166 = 41,500kg or 4.5 tones. And those are Swiss measurements - over 6000 meters of steel wire was used to build the longest suspension bridge in Nepal. The bridge joins two sides of a great valley. Before its construction, locals walked five hours to cross this river gorge.
