If thrill and adventure are on your mind, then bungy jumping in Rishikesh is one thing that should interest you instantly. The adrenaline rush that this adventure sport promises is second to none. This daredevil activity is offered from high bridges, helicopters, tall buildings and hot air balloons, across the globe but here it is offered from a specially built platform, which is built on a cliff. This cliff overlooks a gorge, through which flows the mighty Ganga River. The height of this bungee jump is 83 metres and honestly, it is an experience definitely worth a try!
This bungee jumping site has been designed and set up by a New Zealander – David Allardice. The instructors at this place are flown in from New Zealand to man the jumps. Before you do this daredevil stunt, you would be properly trained by these instructors. You would be given proper equipment and assistance in getting ready for the jump. Before you attempt this stunt, you will be asked get into the bungee jumping gear. Your feet will be attached to a long elastic cord (made of latex rubber), which will also be connected to your jumping gear. Once this is done, all you got to do is admire the surrounding environs; the flowing Ganga below and take a deep breath before you make the jump that you have been waiting for, on this Rishikesh trip. After the jaw-dropping, 83-metre jump, walk to the cafeteria and watch your jumping video and photographs.
