The ultimate thrill of a bungee jump can now be experienced in Nepal at one of the best sites that this sport can boast of anywhere in the world.
Nepal’s first bungee jumping site is situated 160m. Over the Bhote Kosi River, inviting you to experience the ultimate adrenaline rush in the surroundings of this amazing place. The jump, at 160m., is staffed and operated by some of the most experienced jump masters in the business.
Location: Himalayas of Nepal
Access: Less than 3 hours outside Kathmandu by Ultimate Bungy Shuttle. You will travel the Araniko (Kathmandu/Lhasa) Highway to within 12km of the Tibet Border and the famous Friendship Bridge (you can even make a day trip there for lunch in Tibet).
The Gorge: Ultimate Bungy Nepal takes place on a 166m wide steel suspension bridge over the Bhote Kosi River.
The Bridge: Swiss designed, especially for bungy jumping with a 4x safety 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 tunes. And. Those are Swiss measurements!
- Over 6000m 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
The Jump: We think the Ultimate 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 (look at the pros picture here) in the business.
