Bungee jumping is an adventure sport that involves the jumpers beings tied to an elastic cord and then jumping from a fixed tall structure. The elastic cord is usually tied to the feet of the jumper whereby the jumper jumps head first from the fixed and tall structure. This sport has recently become immensely popular with more and more people turning to Bungee jumping for the feel of the sudden adrenaline rush that is associated with such adventure sports. Also spelt as bungee jumping, the rush of adrenaline comes from the free fall first and then the rebound caused by the elastic cord tied to the feet. When the jumper jumps in this jumping adventure activity sport, the elastic cord 1st stretches to give the feel of free fall and then the cord recoils pulling the jumper up again by feet to make the jumper fly up.

This oscillation motion continues until the kinetic energy of the cord dissipates completely giving a sensation of flying to the jumper. Even though bungee jumping was a sport that was usually done from a fixed structures like bridges, buildings or cliff tops[1], at present the jumpers are going a few steps further to jump from moving objects like a helicopter or hot air balloon as well. There are many places in India offering bungee jumping like Mumbai, Pune, Uttarakhand. But the experience is different when jumping from a bridge or building than jumping in the midst of nature from a mountain or cliff top.

If jumping in the lap of nature is the preference of any traveler, the best place to visit is Uttarakhand. This north Indian state is a treasure trove of adventure sport activities including this jumping adventure activity sport. If done under expert guidance, it is completely safe as well.
