We think the Bungy is the most spectacular jump in the world. At 160 meters high, it is Nepal’s Ultimate Rush. It was designed by one of New Zealand’s leading Bungy Consultants and is staffed and operated by some of the most experienced Western Jump Masters in the business.
You will find the bungy shuttle in the Himalayan country of Nepal having access of less than 3 hours out of Kathmandu. You will travel the Arniko (Kathmandu/Lhasa) Highway to within 12km of the Tibet Border and the famous Friendship Bridge. Bungy Jump takes place on a 166m wide steel suspension bridge over the Bhoti Kosi River. The bridge where bungy jump takes place is swiss designed, specially for bungy jumping with a 4x saftey factor. The bridge has a loading factor of 250kg per running meter. This means that the bridge will hold 250 x 166 = 41,500kg or 4.5 tonnes. And… those are Swiss measurements!
Over 6000 meters of steel wire was used to build the bridge.
Longest suspension bridge in Nepal.
- The bridge joins two sides of a great valley. Before its construction, locals walked five hours to cross this river gorge.
