Bungee Jumping - The Leap of Faith In Bangalore!

This adrenaline filled sport isn't for the faint-hearted. Bungee jumping is also widely known as the leap of faith. It involves jumping off a raised platform attached to a crane or a cliff. The jumper is connected to a large elastic rope which is tied to his feet. This adrenaline filled activity is enjoyed by both young and old. Bungee jumping is not only limited to tall buildings, bridges or cranes - but in the recent time, they have also been attempted from moving objects such as helicopters. What thrills the heart is not the jump but the rebound movement of the jumper.

Even though this activity is deemed dangerous by many, it is, in fact, a safe activity and undergoes a lot of safety checks before being undergone. This is mostly because most bungee jumps are run by trained and experienced professionals who use the best and most secure equipment and maintain very stringent safety procedures. It is often seen that most jumpers back off either due to anxiety or fear, but it overall is a safe and quite a thrilling activity.
