The Bundgy Jump (INR 5000 per person) - From the wilderness to the highest adrenaline rush - THE BLOUKRANS BUNDGY should not & CANNOT be missed.
Detailed review : At the first look, its a massive structure that scares you to levels that no preparedness can help calm. 216m above sea level, you are going to jump.
I was petrified and so full of anxiety that I had not slept the night before.
Anyway, I had promised myself to write a review that helps readers take this plunge if I survive mine.
This plunge - and mark my words - WILL BE THE MOST LEGENDARY EXPERIENCE OF YOUR LIFE.
So, you meet your guide. These guides know all languages. He said Ganpati Bappa Morya (a holy Indian God Call) to me and I was pleasantly surprised! The guides are extremely professional and make you feel safe like you're just jumping off your bed.
Once the harness is tied, they walk you through a bridge that connects you to the jump point (which is exact centre of bloukrans bridge). I would suggest you don't look down - anything that adds to your fear right now is not worth it.
5 mins of walking gets you to the arcade area - the jump point, which is so full of energy - there is music, dancing and absolutely lovely people.
You are given safety instructions and assigned your jump numbers.
The adrenaline rush (as well as anxiety) now hits the top gear - your ankles are tied, your given a chest harness too.
You put your hands around your guide's shoulders as you jump-trot to the final point.
DO NOT LOOK DOWN, DO NOT THINK.
Now that you are there, its best to see what lies below you :)
I asked the guide - I'll be okay? He said : Jump, leave the rest to me.
AND I JUMPED!
Calm, beautiful and so silent - you start believing in life.
Look down, the water is slowly flowing.
Look around, the green lands clap at your bravery.
And there comes your guide, you let him latch you on to his rope and he takes you back up.
Smile, you are getting clicked. Smile right, it's going to be your craziest picture.
And you come back up with the best feeling of accomplishment.
One small thing that I wish I knew before I jumped - you might feel the harness is coming off your ankles, but dont worry, it will never come off. And there's always another harness at your chest.
You are going to be fine, it's all going to be worth it!
GO FOR IT! 3... 2... 1... BUNGEEEEEEE!!!
