The Jumpin HeightsThe Jumpin Heights are the first one to offer a platform for Bungy (Bungee) in Rishikesh. A cantilever platform built over a rocky cliff that overlooks Rocky River Hall, a tributary of River Ganga.

This was designed by David Allardice of New Zealand. Jump Masters from New Zealand are available to operate the Bungee and once you complete it and you are lowered down to a drop zone where the water is only 2 ft high you can walk down and have a drink at the cafeteria. You can also enjoy watching your own photographs and video of your jump. Of course, do not forget to collect the “Dare to Jump Certificate”.
You can be rest assured with the safety standards as they have experts flown in from the country which has commercialized Bungee Jumping and have carried out a number of checks and counter checks. They always ensure high level of experienced crew, a high level of training, the best equipment and procedures in place. The high level of buying standards as followed in Australia and New Zealand is also used as Indian standards. This was not in place before.
