Bungee jumping is an adventure sport for people who love challenges. Bungee jumping is a sport performed by jumping from a tall fixed structure while connected to a long elastic cord. Free-falling and the rebound are the thrills of a Bungee jump. The springy cord extends, and the person flies upwards again as the cord retreats, swaying up and down due to the kinetic energy.
Nepal is a perfect spot for this kind of sport as the country is blessed with many natural Bungee sites. Suspension bridge of Bhote Koshi River near Nepal-Tibet border (The Last Resort) and Himja village nearby Pokhara is the most popular Bungee Jumping places in Nepal. Bungee jumping in Pokhara is the highest Bungee in Nepal for touching the water with an elevation of 75 meters. And Last Resort’s suspension bridge is the second-highest bungee jumping site in the world with a height of 160 meters. All the processes and techniques of the sport are the same in both places with difference only that you dive into a pond, which is 18/20-meter-deep in Pokhara. In contrast, you jump directly to a gorge in Bhotekoshi.
The site for Bungee jumping in Last Resort was chosen and designed by New Zealand’s leading bungee consultants. Some of the most experienced jumpmasters operate this site. The business running groups has put safety first, and it has done everything to prevent any mishap.
A day drive to the bungee jumping site is itself an exciting trip. As you drive through the concrete forest of Kathmandu to the sub-urban countryside, you will experience the difference in lifestyle. The sub-urban countryside exposes you native Nepal, rather than the Kathmandu valley.

Equipment used in Bungee Jumping
Bungee Jumping uses an elastic cord to sway up and down. The unique cord consists of many latex strands closed in a durable outer cover. The cover of latex provides a harder and sharper bounce of wire.
Safety and possible injuries During Bungee Jumping
There is very little chance of injury during bungee jumping. The injury occurs only when the safety joint fails, cord length is miscalculated, or the cord is not correctly connected to the jump platform. To establish a bungee jumping site, one needs to pass all the tests to ensure all these safety measures. So, it is sporadic to get injured doing a bungee jump. In spite of safety measures, some injuries can occur, such as the sudden rise of upper body intravascular pressure during withdrawal of bungee cord, and eyesight damage.
Whiplash injuries are another problem that might occur, as the jumper jerks on the bungee cord; in some cases, it might lead to Quadriplegia, secondary to a broken neck. Another serious problem is when the jumper’s neck or body gets entangled in the cord. As there are risks even in everyday life, there is some risk involved in this sport too. However, the thrill that the sport provides is far worth the risk involved for many adventurous individuals.
