Bungee Jump Nepal (160 m / 525 ft) – Bhote Kosi River Gorge

Bungee at Last Resort - Nepal July 2010 The valley is narrow with steep hillsides towering over 2,000 metres (6,600 ft) from the river. Nepal's first bungee jumping site is situated at Last Resort, 160 metres (525 ft) above a gorge with the river raging below. It is 12 kilometres (7.5 mi) from the Nepal-Tibet border. Bungee jumping at the Last Resort is one of the longest in the world. It is higher than the highest bungee in the New Zealand.[4]After leaping from the bridge platform, the bungee jumper has a free fall towards the river before the swing lines take up the tension and he enters a large, semicircular arc of about 240 metres (790 ft). When it opened in 1999, the Last Resort was amongst the highest suspension footbridges in the world. Swiss designed, especially for bungee jumping with a 4x safety factor, the bridge will hold 4.5 tonnes. Over 20,000 ft of steel wire was used to build the longest suspension bridge in Nepal. - Wikipedia
