The ultimate thrill of a bungy (bungee)jump can be experienced in Nepal at one of the best sites in the world. Nepal's bungy jumping site is situated 160 meters over the wild river Bhote Koshi. The site is located close to the Nepal-Tibet border at Barabise and is a three-hour bus ride from Kathmandu. A package deal includes the jump, bus ride to the site, and even meals. Accommodation and other facilities are available in Barabise.
The bungee jump site was designed by one of the New Zealand's leading bungy consultants and has been staffed and operated by some of the most experienced western jump masters in the business, working to exacting international standards to guarantee your safety.
Bungy takes place on a 166 meter wide steel suspension bridge. Swiss designed specially for bungy jumping with a 4x safety factor, the bridge has a loading factor of 250 kg per running meter. This means that the bridge can hold 250*166=41500 kg or 41.5 tonnes. And those are Swiss measurements. Over 6000 meter of steel wire was used to build the bridge that joins two sides of a beautiful valley.
