As of now, there is only one agency offering this sport i.e the Last Resort. The jump, at 160m, was designed by one of New Zealand's leading bungee consultants, and is operated by some of the most experienced jump masters in the business. It's mishap-proof. The agency takes safety very seriously. The bridge is Swiss designed, especially for bungee jumping with a 4x safety factor. The bridge has a loading factor of 250kg per running meter.

 

This means that the bridge will hold 250 x 166 = 41,500kg or 4.5 tones. Over 6000 meters of steel wire is used to build the longest suspension bridge in Nepal. The bridge joins two sides of a great valley. Before its construction, locals walked five hours to cross this river gorgeIt is located within a reach of 3 hours outside Kathmandu and just 12 km away from the Tibet Border.It is advised to empty the pockets and not take any intoxicants before the jump. Everyone is weighed before the fall is made, to use different cords for different categories of weights. The Green, Red and Black cords are used for the lightest, the heavier and the heavyweights accordingly. Adrenaline begins to rush as you jump.
