Going on a holiday is always invigorating; some people like to unwind and relax while the others like to go wild. If you like exploring and indulging in adventurous activities, India has an abundant variety to offer, and rest assured, you’ll be spoilt for choice. Bungee Jumping is one such activity which will make you sweat out of nervousness, scream with excitement, and want to do it over and over again. Given below are a few of the top bungee jumping destinations in India.
Xtreme Sports, Bengaluru
One of India’s most vibrant cities, Bengaluru is the capital of the state of Karnataka. The city’s youth are always buzzing with excitement and constantly on the lookout for something new and adventurous to do. What better way to kill time than think of ways to get rid of your acrophobia? Located at the Palace Grounds, Xtreme Sports has set up a crane that towers 150 meters above the ground. One of the most popular bungee jumping locations in India, Xtreme Sports conducts workshops all year round. Dive from the crane as gravity pulls you down while the elastic rope opposes it well. Those from the age group of 18 – 50 years can give this a try, but it isn’t for the weak hearted. All safety precautions are taken and you can be sure of having an experience of a lifetime.
Delhi is the national capital of our country; it exudes good character, lively people, and great heritage. It is a melting pot of various religions, cultures, and languages. Although there are many good getaway activities to experience in the city, there are only a few that give you an adrenaline rush such as bungee jumping; Wanderlust provides just that. They are equipped with German machinery and the staff are given special training at the facility, with international safety standards and an jumper age limit of 14–50 years. With a crane that soars 130 feet above the ground, jumping from this height is nothing less than a breath-taker (quite literally). Aptly named, Wanderlust leaves you lost in wonder both before and after the fall.
Situated 24 kilometres upstream on the banks of River Ganga, Rishikesh is a holy town with ashrams lined on its banks. Visited by many foreigners and local students, this town hosts a few activities for each ones entertainment, one being bungee jumping. Located in Mohan Chatti Village, this is arguably one of the most preferred bungee jumping destinations in India. With a fixed Cantilever platform built over a rocky cliff 83 meters above land, this is the only place in India that such jumping is possible. Experience bungee jumping like never before at this Village located just 15 kilometres away from Rishikesh. With safety features designed by experts from New Zealand coupled with Jump Masters from the same, there is no reason to worry as you take this ‘leap’ of excitement. Although it is slightly more pricy than its competitors (Rs. 2500), it is worth each and every penny.
Gravity Adventure Zone, Goa
One of the most popular destinations in both India and the world, Goa is located along the Konkan Coast to the West of the country. Decorated with beautiful Churches from the times of the Portuguese rule, this state provides a collage of some of the most pristine beaches in the country. Aside from sitting on the beach and sipping on a beer, this state offers many more exciting activities such as various water sports and bungee jumping. Located near one of the most popular beaches in town, Anjuna Beach, Gravity Adventure Zone offers you the experience to get your heart beating like never before. This can easily be the ideal first place to try bungee jumping as the tower is just 25 meters tall, much less than most other platforms. At a reasonable price of just Rs. 500 per jump, this is easily one of the best places to do so.
A hill station in character, Lonavla is located between the two mega cities of Mumbai and Pune. One of the best and most visited holiday spots in the state of Maharashtra, Lonavla has a glut of activities full of adventure for both locals as well as tourists. With many hotels, waterparks, and other fun filled activities like bungee jumping, this place of paradise has a lot more to offer than just Mother Nature.
