If you are fond of adventure sports and you enter Rishikesh, you cannot miss out this opportunity to trying out various adventure sports like Bungee jumping. Here, we take your to a 80 meters high platform and secure you thoroughly with a harness and elastic ropes. You are then made to jump from the height. The elastic ropes are harnessed in order to make the fall easier and gradual for you and to avoid jerks.. The sensation of the free fall is simply fantastic. Get rid of your fears and enjoy this and other spine chilling adventure activities such as zip lining and swing. You can go for them alone or with company. We provide you with a video and pictures of you during the adventure sport along with a certificate.
Rishikesh Bungee jumping
Being the most popular of all adventure activities, we have set this up in collaboration with experts from New Zealand. We typically carry this activity out over a small rivulet of the river Ganga having 0.5 to a meter of water on almost all days. Once the activity is over, you are lowered in the river and helped to take out your harness.
Zip Lining in Rishikesh
We use the same place to carry out Zip lining and over the two banks of the Ganga river. The harness is fitted at a height of 7 meters approximately on one side and you will roll under the gravitational force. Your vision is blurred as you reach a speed of 160 km. Typically carried out by 3 persons consecutively, you can opt to do it alone with some small additional cost.
Swing Jumping in Rishikesh
The same platform used for Bungee jumping is used for Swing jumping. A chest harness secures you well as you jump from the platform. Once the fall is initialized , the ropes will make you swing like a pendulum with the river beneath you , about 10 meters above the forest. As you complete the activity, you are lowered into the river which is quite shallow . Again this activity can be performed with company or alone
