Trust me, crazy and extreme adventures scares almost everyone! Believe what they say – It’s all about taking that leap of faith and doing it anyway. And I had taken that leap, you can call me crazy or adventurous or whatever but I would say it was so much fun trying out this extreme adventure – BUNGY JUMPING. 😀 – that too from the highest Bungy jumping site in New Zealand.
If you will ask me, did it scare you? My answer will yes a bit but it was moreover fun! I actually got a bit scared at the last moment. Am I really going to risk my life? But then I am left with no other option, with no more time to think of quitting it. I did it somehow and had thanked myself later. 😉
My Bungy Experience from the Highest Bungy in New Zealand
To experience and taste the adrenaline rush of Bungy, one needs to first go high in the mountains, it took us 35-45 minutes to reach the site. Everyone was excited and a bit scared too. After gaining a tremendous height and briefing, we were then carried to the jump site in a cable car. My enthusiasm was at its peak and believe me, I wasn’t scared yet. 😛
After a few people, now it was my turn to jump. Only one leg was harnessed and the body was free. I was then taken to the edge of the jump site. This time I felt I could feel my heartbeat a bit. I was a bit nervous but excited too. Now only a few seconds were left, and there was no going back.
I was still fine standing at the cliff, smiling, not so nervous, and ready to jump. Finally, figured it out, I’m not a faint heart. Obediently following the instructions, I jumped on the count of 3..2..1.JUMPPPP! And the best part was – the instructor didn’t throw me, I threw myself off the bridge from a height of 134 meters (more than 40 floors high). Crazy me 😀
And yyuuhhhhuu! I was in the air…FLYING! Felt like I have wings. I started screaming, I AM FLYING!
It pretty much gave me moments like I am soaring. It made me felt so light, it made me felt so alive. I really rejoiced every moment of it, closed my eyes for a while, and felt those bliss moments.
While swinging in the air, I enjoyed the last rebound part the most.

My Bungy Experience
Jumping from a height of 134 meters was really insane with 8 seconds of rapid free-fall but it was a pure adrenaline rush as well. Just imagine how fast it must have been! I came down from such a tremendous height just in a few seconds. Insane!
Check out my another video that was taken from the glass floor
I loved each moment, it was a lifetime experience that I believe will be stored in my memories forever.

Yes, certainly! It is among the must-do thing here as it is the first country where bungy jumping started. Nevis Bungy here is the highest Bungy in New Zealand and is among the best Bungy in the world. Its experience will really leave you spellbound.
