Bungee Jumping in Kathmandu - 1 Day

Overview

Bungee Jumping in Kathmandu is a trip to Bhote Koshi River where you get to try your hands at the thrilling and heart-pumping entertainment of jumping off at a height of 130 meters to the bottom of the gorge from a suspension bridge over it, known all over as Bungee Jump. The roots of this crazy activity for free-falling under the gravitational forces of the earth, and just land safely before crashing to smithereens all started in the rural part of Indonesia, where village lads use to have their ankles tied to vine ropes and jump off cliffs and tree to water bodies below and being pulled up by friends just before touching the surface.

The excitement this activity caused, caught on with the rest of the world and where it was modified to an elastic strong enough to cause de-acceleration a couple of meters before impact, does getting the name bungee and hence bungee jumping. This exciting and heart-thumping activity happens in one of the deepest river gorges that Nepal has to have over the river Bhote Koshi at a height of 130 meters, just imagine. It is from the top of a steel suspension bridge made especially for crossing this river on foot and this activity by the Swiss among the surreal backdrop of the evergreen mountains on both sides. This place is just a three hour drive away from Kathmandu.

You are weighed and the proper bungee is harnessed to you. You are taken to the jumping off-ramp, a simply given a soft push off. It takes a couple of seconds which might see an eternity, with the thrill that free-falling has, it is an experience which is only second to sky diving. Just a couple of meters before you think, that you will hit the river floor and boulders below, the bungee reigns your fall in and you begin dangling and bouncing a few meters above to the relief of your over-excited mind. You are slowly pulled back to the ramp above or dropped to the banks to hike you way up to get you time to take the experience, all depending on your predilection. There might be other places in the Western World where there places of higher drops, but none as high as this one in a natural environment made in the perimeter of the earth’s natural terrain till date.

When it is all over, you have a hearty lunch and are returned back to Kathmandu.

There is much that one can take away from the bungee jumping trip in Nepal, the first is getting the excitement of jumping off a steel suspension bridge in the surreal environment of two mountains into a river gorge. The second is the free-fall excitement to a distance of 130 meters under the gravitational pull of the earth. The next being taken and brought back to your place of lodging within the day by privately to take in the experience before you hit the sack. One of the most overlooked is being able to be a part of extreme adventure and thrill, make other adventures something insignificant. Having lunch after your experience and hearing the screams of others on the way down, makes it all a smile on your face.

Is Bungee Jumping Safe?
It may look like a dangerous activity, but bungee jump is basically a safe activity with all the thrills and spirit of adventure. Like elsewhere in the world, the authority would not have given the go-ahead for such activity if it was to be harmful in any way. In fact, bungee jumping in Kathmandu has not had any fatalities till date, leave alone any injuries. Only those companies, who meet all the safety standards and use all the measures set down by International standards are allowed to run this activity. Plus, before you actually jump, you are medically checked and weight measurements to the very last centimeter so that the proper bungee is strapped on. So, you might wonder, “Why all the hue and cry?” and the jump of a free fall to safety and is enjoyable next to float in zero gravity in space.
