Trip Descriptions

Bungee Jumping

This truly adrenaline sport has truly found a natural home in the highest mountain range on the planet. The ultimate thrills of a bungee jump can now be experienced in Nepal at perhaps one of the best sites in the world, amidst some stunning landscapes on the borders of Tibet.
 
Nepal’s first bungee jumping site is situated 160m over the wild Bhote Koshi River, and located close to the Nepal -Tibet border, just a three-hour bus ride from Kathmandu. This can be arranged on arrival in Kathmandu. As of now, there is only one agency offering this sport. The jump, at 160m, was designed by one of New Zealand’s leading bungee consultants, and is operated by some of the most experienced jump masters in the business. It’s mishap-proof. The agency ensures safety “very, very seriously”, at the highest standards.
 
The Bungee Bridge happens to be the only privately owned bridge in Nepal. It has been specially designed for bungee jumping with a 4x-safety factor and has a loading factor of 41,500 kg or 4.5 tons according to Swiss measurements. The wild raging Bhote Koshi appeared a mere stream below the strength of this bridge! One would have to be totally insane or hell bent on suicide mission to jump off the remarkable 500-ft (160 m) drop into the Bhote Koshi River gorge just below.

In Pokhara enjoy bungy jumping from a 70- meter high tower bridge. The bungy site is located less than an hours’ drive from central Pokhara. Enjoy an adrenaline rush as you leap off from the platform down below, amidst a spectacular landscape. Professionals from Europe operate this adventure.

Before its construction, locals walked five hours to cross this river gorge.
