Bungee Jumping is one of the popular adventure sports performed with great zeal, passion and excitement in almost every country present across the globe. With increasing popularity amongst the youth, this sport has gained momentum in India too. With Rishikesh being an ideal location for adventure lovers, bungee jumping too can be performed here. The town is equipped with necessary infrastructure, international coaches and quaint settings to foster this mind-boggling sport.
The question that pops up is what ‘Bungee Jumping’ is and why it is so exciting? As the name suggests it is an adventurous activity wherein the person is tied up with an elastic cord and jumps from a tall structure. This tall structure could be any man made fixed or movable object like Crane, building, bridge, Hot air balloon or helicopter. Bungee Jumping as an activity becomes exciting as one jump from the designated structure, the elastic cord elongates and the jumper feels as if he is flying up and down. Here the catch is ‘elastic cord’ which recoils and oscillates due to the force and the process continues till all the energy dispels. The jumper senses a mixture of fear, excitement, ecstasy and awe during that short duration.
Rishikesh is a home of incredible wonders. Jump in Heights is the name of the spot that offers bungee jumping to the adventurers. It is well-known as India’s Highest Bungee Jumping Point because of its jump height i.e. 83 meters from the fixed structure. The jumping platform here is constructed on a rocky hill and faces one of the tributaries of River Ganga i.e. Hall. The picturesque views around the bungee platform are awesome and attract photographers. Jumpers get goose bumps before they gear up for the jump. This bungee is especially designed by David Allardice from New Zealand and is operated by a team of international jump masters from the country.
