|Bungy Jumping In
Nepal's first bungy jumping site is
situated 160m over the wild Bhote Kosi river, and located
close to the Nepal-Tibet border, a three-hour bus ride from
Kathmandu. As 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 bungy
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".
Less than 3 hours outside
Kathmandu by Ultimate Bungy Shuttle. You will travel the Arniko
(Kathmandu/Lhasa) Highway to within 12km of the Tibet Border and the
famous Friendship Bridge.
Ultimate Bungy Nepal takes place on a 166m wide
steel suspension bridge over the Bhoti Kosi River.
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.
