It is located close to the Nepal-Tibet border, a three-hour bus ride from Kathmandu . You will travel the Arniko (Kathmandu/Lhasa) Highway to within 12km of the Tibet Border and the famous Friendship Bridge.
Cross Culture Trekking takes place on a 166m wide steel suspension bridge over the Bhoti Kosi River.
The Bungee Bridge happens to be the only privately owned bridge in Nepal. 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 according to Swiss measurements. 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 gorge.
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.
