The crew at the place greeted me and started to tie me with the safety ropes, in meantime Saikiran has jumped. Soon Vijay followed him. Vijay got the best jump among us, he followed the instructions well and dived forward beautifully. Next I was asked to move to the position, as I moved towards I saw the ground from the platform. This was my mistake, as I was feared of heights already my heart started to beat faster, soon I was at the edge of the platform as he told me to jump for the count of three I was scared, and was waiting for him to give me a push. I stopped and asked him for another count, soon he counted 3, I tried to lean forward and jump.....!!
As I jumped I was in another emotion for a couple of seconds, the adrenaline pumped out of me, then I realised that I did it and started to scream loud, this was my best experience of my life. As I was moving downwards, the free falling body gave me the best feel to remember for my life. I have never even dreamed to do such a task, tying ropes to my legs and jumping from a 272 feet height, But atlast I did it Successfully.
It was the craziest thing which I have done ever. As I reached down i was bounced back by the elasticity of the rope, I then realised that "Adventures are not the easy tasks" , After a couple of swings I came towards the ground and I was wondering about the position i was hanging in.
"What if the ropes turned loose or they got cut ??", it was the first thought which I got when I reached the ground. Where they untied me and gave me a badge, stating "I GOT GUTS !!" . Yeah really I have got guts.
I have done the most dangerous jump ever, I have done the biggest bungee jump in India with a breathtaking heights of 83mts. That's why they have mentioned it has the extreme adventure sport. It's really was an extreme ride. Soon I came towards the other people waiting for us, as I moved Bhanu jumped and came to us in no time.
We are gathered together and started to share the experience, now we need to climb up the hill towards the booking office. This was the hectic task for us to climb the 90 metres hill through the jungle. As we moved to the top we stopped for a couple of breaks and reached the place. We started to view our jumps on the screen and feelings are high enough.
We contacted the members for the next ride, as there was some delay we quickly grabbed the food in the lobby, we had burgers as the small meal, and are ready for the next ride.
Soon We were called for the next ride
F L Y I N G F O X . . . .
We collected the tickets and started to move up the hill towards the point. As this path has some good way we climbed up easily, we reached the spot and waiting for our turn. Soon Me along with Akhil and Bhanu are called in to the combined ride.
We were again tied the ropes and Akhil was placed in the middle while I and Bhanu took the the place beside him, and the crew started to work on the machine and on the count we set free, to our excitement we flew with a big scream at speed about 160km/h. As we moved on it was a great feel. The view from the top looked very beautiful, it was 1 kilometre long stretch. As we moved on we got a quick view along the valley. We moved forward, we noticed the otherside of the hill were a small village was located with very small quantity of houses.
It was a lovely ride as Bhanu and me started joking around and Akhil was damn silent as he was fearing himself, we started to pose like the superhero, to the camera fixed to it, and we were commenting around the location. Well and the ride ended on no time as we are dragged back to the point. As we were moving back Akhil was dumb closing his eyes, while we are screaming, shouting and even tried to dance along the way.
As we returned, Vijay and Saikiran went for the next ride. We soon finished the task and moved back the office place for one last time. Waiting for the last ride of the day. And we are given the tickets and we started to the bungee bridge again for,
G A I N T S W I N G . . .
We soon reached the point and again sat in the lobby area waiting for our turn. This time Vijay went for the first ride, followed by Akhil and Saikiran as they decided to swing together, then Bhanu and Me. As I reached the point they received me and tied the safety ropes and I was waiting for the one last jump. As my turn came I was tied to the gaint rope and was released eventually, as I jumped, I was swinging the largest depth, it was an amazing feeling apart from the bungee jumping.
The swing moved to the very last edge of the other hill followed back the tower. This oscillation caused my soul float in the air for a couple of minutes. I was tied to the long rope and was swinging in the river valley at the depth of 83 metres. This experience will never fade out of my mind, these are the best adventures of my life, As the swing stopped, I reached the ground and untied the ropes, soon they gave me the badge and a water bottle.
Soon we gathered around and started to climb the hill again. We were tired just for climbing those hills, and after we reached the place we obtained the video clips of our jumps and they provided the certificates for our dareness. The cost for the video clips was 800 per jump. We purchased two of them for 1200.
And now another couple of adventures were completed and were written in our adventure book. We completed the main asset of our trip and were on the happiest side. Soon we got into the mini bus which droped us back in Rishikesh, as we got down the bus, we quickly had a chat about the food and moved into the local hotel, as the non veg is restricted in temple city we quickly had some snack items.
We started to walk down the roads of Rishikesh, we found so many white people dressed in the indian attire and are living along the place. We soon moved to the Laxman Jhula road. We visited the shops nearby and food stalls where we saw some south indian cuisine like idly, dosa. as we moved in we came across a couple of foreign restaurants, whee a lot of white people visiting that place. Meanwhile we tried noodles and momos at the roadside foodstall. It tasted good.
We found so many shops which consists of currency of various countries, We saw so many different currencies there and Bhanu took a couple of coins, we soon moved towards the bridge and found some scented Dhoop clay, we liked the fragrance and purchased it. We moved to Laxman Jhula.
