The Ultimate BunGee Experience in Nepal

Craziness is the word that can best describe this adventure activity where you tie your legs with a rope and jump fall free from a good height conquering your fears. Many people don’t know but Nepal has one of the highest Bungee jumping around the world. I was very skeptical while doing this, in fact I wanted to experience it when I visited Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe and that was way before I visited Nepal but wasn’t able to make my mind whether to do it or not.
