Bungee Jumping

The ultimate thrill of a Bungee jump can be experienced in Nepal and is undoubtedly the best site in the world. Nepal's first bungee jumping site is located close to the Nepal -Tibet border, a three-hour bus ride from Kathmandu and is situated 160 m over the wild Bhote Koshi River.

The jump, at 166m, was designed by one of New Zealand's leading bunge consultants, and is operated by some of the most experienced bungee masters in the business. It's mishap-proof and the agency takes safety "very, very seriously".

Location: The Last Resort, 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: 166m wide steel suspension bridge over the Bhote Koshi River.

The Bridge: Swiss designed, especially 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!
