Bungy Jumping in Nepal
The ultimate thrill of a bungy jump can now be experienced in Nepal at perhaps the best site in the world. Nepal’s first bungy jumping site is situated 160m over the wild Bhote Khosi river and located close to the Nepal-Tibet border, three hour bus ride from Kathmandu. The jump at 160m, was designed by one of New Zealand’s leading bungy consultant, and is operated by some of the most experienced jump master’s in the business. It is a mishap proof sporting activity of Nepal. The agency takes safety “very very seroiusly”. The bungy bridge happens to be the only privately owned bridge in Nepal. It has been specially designed for bungy jumping with a 4x-safety factor and has a loading factor of 41,500 kg or 4.5 tons according to Swiss measurements.
The Bhote khosi appeared a mere stream! One would have to be totally insane or suicidal twisted to jump off the remarkable 500-ft (160 m) drop into the Bhote Kosi river gorge. It is advised to empty the pockets and not take any intoxicants before the jumps. Everyone is weighed before the fall is made and to use different cords for different categories of weights. The Green, Red and Black cords are used for the lightest, the heavier and the heavyweights accordingly. It is a perfect way of wild adventure. More over you can enjoy a wild experience of cannoning and long range of swing from one spot.
