Trip Overview

Bungee Jumping is an outdoor wild sport activity that has emerged over the past fifteen years, it represents a challenge for all thrill seekers. It involves a person jumping from a high place, usually several hundred feet off the ground. He/she is attached with an elastic rope normally at the feet, the other end of the rope is connected to where the person is jumping from. Nepal’s only bungee jumping site is situated 160m above the wild Bhote Kosi river, it has been running for nine years with no mishaps and is located close to the Nepal-Tibet border, a three-hour bus ride from Kathmandu. The jump, at 160m, was designed by one of New Zealand’s leading bungee consultants, it is operated by some of the most experienced jump masters in the business.
