What to Expect
The ultimate thrill of a bungee jump can be experienced at one of the best sites in the world on this day tour. Nepal`s bungee jumping site is situated 160 meters over the wild Bhote Koshi River, located close to the Nepal-Tibet border at Barabise, a 3-hour bus ride from Kathmandu.
This day trip package deal includes the bungee jump, the bus ride to the bungee jump site, and meals. You will first depart from Kathmandu and drive along the Arniko Highway to within 12 kilometers of the Tibetan border and the famous Friendship Bridge. You will then arrive at the bungee jump site on a 160-meter wide steel suspension bridge over the Bhoti Koshi River.
The Swiss-designed suspension bridge was made especially for bungee jumping and had a load factor of 250 kilograms per running meter. This means that the bridge will hold a maximum of 41,500 kilograms (4.5 tons). Over 6,000 meters of steel wire was used to build the bridge, making it the longest suspension bridge in Nepal. The bridge joins 2 sides of a great valley, and before its construction, locals walked 5 hours to cross this river gorge.
