- Jump from Nepal’s longest suspension bridge
- May be the longest bungee freefall in the world
When you think of Nepal, you think of sacred monasteries filled with incense and chanting, hiking snowcapped Himalayan peaks in the fresh mountain air - you don’t often think of adrenaline-charged bungee jumps. But that’s what this Nepal gift experience is all about. You’ll drive 3.5 hours from Thamel, leaving at 6am in the morning alongside a group of other daredevils, headed for the Bhoti Kosi River Gorge, close to the border with Tibet. Here you’ll jump from a suspension bridge, Swiss-designed purposefully for bungee jumps, with what some think may be the longest bungee freefall in the world - 160 metres - yikes!
Before this bridge was built, local people had to walk five hours to cross this gorge. Now they can get around with ease, and as an added bonus, they get to watch loons jumping off it as well. Location is everything with bungee jumping, and this is about as dramatic as it gets - the river flowing beneath you is wild and white, lined with tropical vegetation. There’s no greater badge of honour for the adrenaline-seeker than a jump like this, so if you’ve got the nerve for it, 5...4...3...2...1...BUNGEE!
