The Bungee jumping is an adventure sport for the people who dare challenges and Nepal is a perfect spot for the jump as the country is blessed with naturally built Bungee site. Suspension bridge of Bhote Koshi river "The Last Resort" near Nepal-Tibet border and Hemja village nearby Pokhara is the most popular sites for Bungee Jumping in Nepal. Pokhara bungee jumping is the highest bungee for touching the water in the world with an elevation of 75m and bungee in suspension bridge in Bhotekoshi is the second highest bungee jump site in the world with an elevation of 160m. In both places all the processes and techniques of this sport are same but the only difference is that in Pokhara you dive to a pond which is 18/20 meter deep and in Bhotekoshi you dive directly to a gorge.
The site for bungee jumping in Bhotekoshi was chosen and designed by New Zealand's leading bungee consultants. It is operated by some of the most experienced jumpmasters. The business operating group puts safety first as it is told that it is the mishap-proof event.

Bungee jumping is also spelled as “Bungy” jumping in New Zealand and several other countries. It is an activity which is performed by jumping from a tall fixed structure while connected to a large elastic cord. Free-falling and the rebound are the thrills of Bungee jumping. The elastic cord stretches and the adventurer flies upwards again as the cord recoils, and oscillation up and down continues due to the kinetic energy.
Besides trekking, peak climbing and tour, Nepal is also popular for an exciting one-day outing excursion. Like other adventure excursions, Bungee jump, Zip flyer, Paragliding are gaining much more popularity every day among international and national tourists who want something new and adventure in their life.
The elastic rope is used for Bungee jumping. The special cord consists of many latex strands enclosed in a tough outer cover. The latex is pre-stressed while applying to the outer cover due to which the cord resistance to an extension is already significant at the cord natural length. Harder and sharper bounce of cord is provided by the cover of latex.
Injury can happen only if the safety harness fails, cord length is miscalculated, or the cord is not properly connected to the jump platform. We have the record of such fail that happened with Michael Lush in 1986, who died because of multiple injuries while doing the stunt on BBC television program. Despite safety measures, injuries that occur are related to the abrupt rise of upper body intravascular pressure during recoil of bungee cord. Eyesight damage is also a major problem that is reported very frequently.
Whiplash injuries are also major injuries that may occur as the jumper is jolted on the bungee cord and in some case, it has led to Quadriplegia secondary to a broken neck. Another very serious problem that may occur is when the jumper’s neck or body gets entangled in the cord. Recently, choking during bungee jumping is also obtained which is led by carotid artery dissection leading to a type of stroke. All these injuries have been seen occurred in physically and mentally fit people in their early ages. This sport is also described to show the increase in stress and a decrease in immune function.
