The ultimate thrill of a bungee jump can now be experienced in Nepal at perhaps the best site in the world. Nepal’s first bungee jumping site is situated 160m over the wild Bhote Koshi river, and 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, 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.”
Location: Eastern Nepal Less than 3 hours from Kathmandu in the Arniko (Kathmandu/Lhasa) Highway to within 12km of the Tibet Border and the famous Friendship Bridge.
The Gorge: It’s huge. Over 500 feet wide and 500 feet deep – or 160m. But 500 feet sounds further. It’s a long way down. Plenty of time to scream!
The Bridge: Swiss designed, 166m wide steel suspension bridge over the Bhote Koshi River. Specially designed and built for bungee 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 tones 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.
Many of our trek and tour guests also ask us to arrange a bungee jump day to be conducted either before or after their trek or tour. We are always delighted to do so as is a great way to see a little more of Nepal and experience one of the very greatest of thrills in a stunningly beautiful gorge location. We can arrange a bungee day for you and transport to and from the site. Ask us to build this into your Nepal-experience package.
