Bungee jumping or swinging over the Bhote Kosi has been described as the ‘ultimate experience’.The valley is narrow with steep hillsides towering over 2,000 metres (6,600 ft) from the river. Nepal’s first bungee jumping site is situated at Last Resort, 160 metres (520 ft) above a gorge with the river raging below. It is 12 kilometres (7.5 mi) from the Nepal-China border.Bungee jumping at the Last Resort is one of the longest in the world. It is higher than the highest bungee in New Zealand.After leaping from the bridge platform, the bungee jumper has a free fall towards the river before the swing lines take up the tension and he enters a large, semicircular arc of about 240 metres (790 ft).When it opened in 1999, the Last Resort was amongst the highest suspension footbridges in the world. Swiss designed, especially for bungee jumping with a 4x safety factor, the bridge will hold 4.5 tonnes. Over 6,000 metres (20,000 ft) of steel wire was used to build the longest suspension bridge in Nepal.
Actual costs need to be checked with the service provider, but just to give a basic idea about costs: the swing or bungee costs 120 US dollars, including lunch and return transport from Kathmandu. Extra jumps cost 25 dollars. A two-day bungee and rafting package with overnight.accommodation, meals and transport costs around 180 U.S. dollars. It is around 3 hours by road from Kathmandu. The Bhote Kosi flows along under the bungee jumping site.
