Bungee is jumping off a high platform with an elastic rope attached to your ankles and waist. You get about 3 seconds of free fall before the rope starts stretching. You bounce off a few times (depends on your weight) until you come to a standstill. Then, few of our staffs lower you down on our recovery platform, take off all the harnesses.
Canyon Swing is jumping of the same platform but with a dynamic rope instead of elastic one. The rope is attached to your full body harness.
You jump feet first with your hands holding the rope that is attached to cables parallel to the bridge, about 100 m in front of the platform.
You get a free fall of about 6 seconds before you start swinging at the speed 150km/ h in an arch of 240 degrees.
Once you come to a standstill, you will be handed a rope which you will need to pull to bring yourself across the river, to a recovery platform. Here, you are unharnessed and let free to go.
The minimum age is 18yrs. Minors will have to get approval from their guardian.
The minimum weight for bungee jumping and swing is 40kgs and the maximum can be 100kgs and 120kgs respectively.
Nepal government never had a proper policy to regulate adventure sports in Nepal. These sports included Bungee, Cannoning, Zip flyers, Paragliding, Ballooning and so on.
Now, the good news is that the government is calling for the registration and regulation of all of these sports. This is great news for all of us as safety in any adventures sports is vital for its own survival. We had informed the government regarding the operation of our activities prior to their running.
We have been running since 1999 with fantastic results. We have sold these adventurous dreams to thousands of external and internal tourists without any accidents.
Our bungee masters and crew were trained by international experts and today, they have become an asset for us, which our company is really proud of. To put this into proper prospective, they are the only bungee experts of Nepal.
