Ever stood on the edge, facing your fears, only to dive into a beautiful abyss amidst the serenity of nature? Bungee jumping is an activity that involves a person jumping from a formidable height while attached to a long rubber chord harnessed to the ankles. Yes, that leaves you whipped around by the elastic chord mid-air, upside down!
Face your fears
Jumping off the cantilever is not just facing the fear of heights but a lot of things in life. Gathering every ounce of courage to take the leap of faith will help you overcome every feeling of suppression. Bungee jumping is not for the faint of heart. You will have to be extra prepared mentally so that you do not panic. But getting it done will leave you with a once-in-a-lifetime memory. Face your fears and book this activity for your next vacation to overcome resentment. Rishikesh and Goa are said to be some of the best locations for bungee jumping.
Break away from the monotony:
There’s a reason why adventure sports like Bungee jumping have been popular as off-site activities among multinational corporations: it increases productivity! A workforce that’s been shaken out of the monotony of their routine, taken amidst nature, and been given the opportunity to undertake some self-exploration that adventure provides, only works better in the end with much higher output than before.
In fact, even IPS officers in India visit Bungee Jumping annually as part of confidence building. However never mistake thrill for danger. Select the best operator that has an exceptional safety record, the most professional practices, expert staff, and outstanding testimonials.
Make memories that last a lifetime!
Nothing lasts more than the memories you make while living life on the edge. The breathtaking view and coming back with stories are exceptional in their own way. It is a personal achievement to take the proverbial leap of faith! Bragging the experience to loved ones and posting pictures on social media is the happiest after-effect of such journeys. Every time you watch a Bungee jumping video or see an image, your personal experience will come flooding back to you as if it was just done yesterday. The memory will be right up there with others and one off the bucket list.
India has only one company so far to be certified by the Ministry of Tourism, Govt of India to be operating Bungee jumps in the country- Jumpin Heights. Incidentally, they are also the only ones to set up fixed Bungee platforms amidst a natural landscape. They have two branches – one at Rishikesh and now in Goa. To the uninitiated, it may make no sense, but those who’ve tasted adventure know the thrill of adrenaline and the power of standing on the edge!
