Experience Bungee Jumping in These Destinations in Nepal
Bungee Jumping in Nepal is an enticing destination for the adventure sport to experience the thrill and the serene landscape around it.
Bungee jumping is an adventure sport where you leap from a cliff while being secured with a long rubber cord around your feet or body. The thrill of jumping with the view of the river below and the shooting back of the person as the cord reaches its maximum pull attracts people from everywhere.
To give chords to these adventure sports, Nepal launched its first Bungee Jumping in Nepal in 2001 AD with the company 'The Last Resort' at the height of 160 meters. Today, this number has been outdone, along with more sites introducing bungee jumping. It has gained popularity these days and you can experience Bungee Jumping as one of the adventure activities in Nepal at 3 different locations.
