The ultimate thrill of a Bungee jump can now be experienced in Nepal at perhaps the best site in the world. The surroundings on the bungee jumping area are going to be fascinating to see. Bhote Koshi’s ever-flowing river has increased the real importance of the Nepal bungee jumping. Bungee jumping can be done in other countries, but not in the natural environment. Thus, Nepal’s bungee jumping will offer Nepal’s visitors a great opportunity to enjoy the great adventurous activities.
Nepal’s first bungee jumping site is situated 160 meters over the wild Bhote Koshi River, and located close to the Nepal-Tibet border, a three-hour bus ride from Kathmandu.
The jump, at 160 meters., 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 takes safety “very, very seriously”.
