One of Nepal’s wildest rivers raging below is enough to make your heartbeat run faster. And it is the thrill of bungee jumping as it there is no fun for real adventure lover if challenge is not so hard and difficult. It is located within a reach of four hours outside of Kathmandu valley and just 19 kilometers away from the Tibet Border. The bungee bridge happens to be the only privately owned bridge in Nepal. It has been specially designed for bungee jumping with a 4x-safety factor and has a loading factor of 41,500 kg or 4.5 tons according to Swiss measurements.

One would have to be totally insane of suicidal twisted to jump off the remarkable 500-ft(160m)drop into the Bhote Koshi river gorge. As the Bungee master nick named Rock advises the jumpers to ensure that pockets are empty and the girls have no loose jewelry coming in the way, nervous laughter erupts from the crowd when he strongly advises against taking intoxicants just before the jump. Jumper’s weights are recorded before the jump to use different cords for different categories of weights. The Green, Red and Black cords are used for the lightest, the heavier and the heavy weights accordingly. It is a perfect way of wild adventure.
