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.
