Bungee Jumping in Rishikesh
What’s the point of an adventurous trip if you haven’t done something crazy and truly adventurous in it? Something that you feel borders on insanity but once you have done it, you want to do it again. If you are an adventure seeker, then you have to try Bungee jumping once. If you have already done it, you know what it is like to drop down head first from several hundred feet above the earth and feel exhilarated about it.
There are only a handful of bungee jumping sites in India, and unsurprisingly, Rishikesh is one of those.
Jumpin Heights in Rishikesh, located in Mohan Chatti village, is the most preferred bungee jumping site in India. Two reasons: First, it’s the only bungee jumping site in India that has a fixed platform. Second, it has a natural landing site in river Huil, and jumpers are lowered down to a safe drop zone where the water level is only 2 feet.
At Jumpin Heights, highest safety measures are taken. Famous bungee jumper, David Allardice, has designed the Bungee. And bungee experts from New Zealand have been flown into Rishikesh to help people experience one of the biggest thrills of their life, safely. Safety Standards as rolled out by New Zealand and Australian Governments are followed. And safety audits are done by international experts from time to time.
The jumping height of the Jumpin Height platform is 83 meters, so you can also have a magnificent view of surrounding mountains and the river flowing under you before you make the ‘jump’. And what’s more, every jumper gets a ‘Dare to Jump’ Certificate as well.
