Bungee over the roaring Bhote Koshi River!
If you’re on a hiking or climbing trip in Nepal and you have an extra day in Kathmandu, a bungee jump over the roaring Bhote Koshi River is not to be missed. Starting in a suspension footbridge, high over the Bhote Koshi River, the jump is a 500 feet drop into the Bhote Koshi gorge that lies in the Nepal/Tibet River. From the bridge you can jump head first and experience 2-3 seconds of freefall, or, you can jump legs first and swing like a pendulum. Standing alone on the edge of the bridge, let alone thinking about the jump. makes many feel sick with giddiness. If you choose to jump head first, the river below rushes towards you, before the cord finally kicks in, leaving you bouncing like a puppet on a string. If you choose the swing, the bungee swings you like a pendulum above the roaring Bhote Koshi River below – both jumps giving you a shot of adrenaline you will never forget.
