Trip Introduction: Bungee Jump in Nepal

Nepal is the ultimate destination for adventure sports and activities like trekking, climbing, hiking, paragliding, rock climbing, Bungee jumping, kayaking, canoeing, mountain biking, zip flying, and so on. Be it physical or mental strength, it is suitable for adrenaline lovers.

Bungee jumping is an extreme adventure sport where a person jumps from a tall structure, especially a bridge or crane, that lies at a certain height while being connected by a harness. As the person associated with the harness jumps, the cord stretches and then recoils, propelling the jumper upward and preventing it from hitting the ground. This creates a thrilling free-fall experience.

Bungy jumping in Nepal is perfect for those adventure seekers who want to spend their vacation doing adventurous activities. It is a relatively new adventure activity in Nepal that has gained popularity in a short span of time due to the thrilling adventure it offers.

History of Bungee Jumping in Nepal

The history of bungee jumping in Nepal started with a New Zealand entrepreneur establishing the bridge over the Bhote Koshi River in 1999 and transforming it into a bungee jumping site. The last resort is the bungee operator in the Bhote Koshi, and the jump height is 160 meters. This created an opportunity for locals and foreigners to attract thrill-lovers from all over the world.

Since the establishment of bungee jumping, various new locations have been developed nationwide. The world’s second-highest bungee jump, which lies on the border of Nepal's Baglung and Kushma districts, began its operation on October 31, 2020, at a height of 228 meters. The bungee jump, also known as Kushma Bungee Jumping or The Cliff, is the highest in Nepal.
