Bungee Jumping in India

Bungee Jumping has been evolving as one of the most craved adventure sports in India for the past few years and the idea of jumping from great heights with a rope as assurance that you’re not gonna die gives great thrill. Just for few seconds, one can experience the might of gravity and completely give in only to take home one of the greatest gifts of their life-the guts to go for the jump.  While the jump can be done by anybody, only those with guts can return with glory for the cord stretches and rebounds until all the force is exhausted. Those few freaky moments which make your hair on the back of neck stand and give you goosebumps are the defining moments of your life. It can be counted a near death experience when all your hope lies on the tautness of the rope holding you back.
