Bungee Jumping also spelled as Bungy Jumping in New Zealand and several other countries is an adventure sports where a person is tied to a large elastic nylon cord and involves jumping from a tall structure that may be from a fixed object such as a bridge, building, or crane; or movable objects like helicopters, hot air balloons that has the ability to hover above the ground. And Nepal is a perfect spot for the jump as Nepal is blessed with naturally built Bungee sites.
There are three bungee jumping sites in Nepal
The first one is on the Suspension bridge of Bhote Koshi River, The Last Resort, with a 160m drop from the bridge. Suspension Bridge in Bhote Koshi is the world’s second-highest bungee jumping site right after AJ Hackett Macau Tower in China.
And the second one is in Hemja, Pokhara, with a height of 70m from the tower.
Bhote Koshi is the upper river course of the Sun Koshi River, which is famous for Bungee Jumping, Rafting, and Kayaking.
As you walk towards the jumping arena, your heart starts to beat faster and faster. And as you reach the arena, the instructor says, “Don’t look down,” but you intend to take a glance and “No, No, No.” This is the first reaction and a real Bungee Jumping experience of every person who dares challenges.
Let’s start with Nepal’s highest Bungee Jumping site, The Last Resort, Bhote Koshi. It is also the first Bungee Jumping site in Nepal designed by the world’s leading bungee consultants in New Zealand.
The Last Resort is located near the Nepal-Tibet border, 19 km far away from the Tibet Border. To start with, you need to take a private or public vehicle for a 30 km drive from Kathmandu, The Capital City of Nepal, and will take roughly around 3 hours to reach The Last Resort, Bhote Koshi, due to the challenging road conditions.
Once you reach the location, you will see a long 166m-wide steel suspension bridge, from where you will make a jump. At first glance, you will definitely feel fear due to its height. Who will not feel the fear of free fall from 160m high? You will feel 3 seconds of free fall when you jump from the bridge.
The bridge was specially designed for Bungee jumping with a 4x Safety factor and has a loading capacity of 41500 KGs which is equivalent to 45.74 Tones.
