Out of my all adventurous activities Bungee Jump is the most exciting and dangerous adventure that I ever did attempt. It was a life time experience. Whenever I watch my bungee jump photos and videos, I just feel like I am back into those moment again.
Bungee jump in Nepal lies on the top of a river gorge of Bhote Koshi close to the Tibetan border, about 3 hours drive to northeast of Kathmandu to within 12 km of the Tibet Border. It takes place on a 160 m wide steel suspension bridge over the Bhote Koshi River. The bridge is Swiss designed, specially for bungee jumping with a 4x safety factor. This bungee jump in Nepal may be one of the most spectacular bungee jump on the Planet. It is Nepal’s ultimate rush.
Jump remarkable 500 ft (160 m) drop into the Bhote Koshi River gorge on the Nepal. This is one of the most breath defying free fall in the world. The bridge has a loading factor of 41,500kg or 4.5 tons. And those are Swiss measurements. The bungee bridge is the longest in Nepal and also the only privately owned bridge. Before its construction, local people walked 5 hrs to cross this river gorge. Designed by a leading bungee consultant of New-Zealand, and operated by highly experienced jumpmasters, Bungee can be experienced in extreme in Himalayan Kingdom like Nepal. Visitors can stay at Resort named called “The Last Resort” and can have overnight and experience more than 80 challenging rapids on the wild river on the next day. Resort is the perfect place for exciting adventure and complete relaxation. Except bungee, we can also enjoy the amazing “Tandem Swing” and thrilling “White Water Rafting”. With the natural scenes and scenaries surrounding this place, make it the great destination to those looking to just relax.
We just have about four seconds of freefall after the jump but I can bet on it that four seconds of bungee jump will add life time experience in you. Imagine a bridge over a 160-metre tropical with the Bhote Koshi, one of the world’s wildest river ranging below……….
Before jumping out of the bridge, a crew will instruct you about how you should jump and inform you about your safety too. In that moment you can hear your heart beat clearly, fell your nervousness by own and smile in your face with excitement.
Then taken at the edge middle of the suspension bridge and then prepare for the jump at the edge… NOW JUUUUMP !!!!!
When I jumped out of the bridge, I had nothing in my mind. For a while I didn’t have any words to speak. After freefall of four seconds I had a couple of bounce in air and slowly when it stopped crew standing in the bridge slowly loosen the rope by which I was hanging. And another crew which was standing on the bank of the river send me a bamboo stick and I hold that bamboo. Slowly they pull in through that bamboo and take down. Then they lose my all safety materials.
When I stood up after removing all safety materials, I had a headache for a while may be because the blood circulation of my body messed up while jumping. After a couple of minute my headache was gone and my others friends also finished that jump and we started walking to the Resort. It takes about thirty minute to climb that hill. We were talking about our jump & feeling that we had during the jump. Everybody was waiting for us and we saw our videos and that was really awesome moment.
It was a such a memorable trip to Village area, Peaceful environment, scenes and sceneries that all was awesome experience.
