When ex Capt. Rahul Nigam decided to set up 'Jumpin Heights'- India’s first Extreme Adventure zone, Rishikesh, in 2006, it was for the purpose of bringing to India something its youth could be proud of. Safety and impeccable quality is not something we, as Indians, trust our systems with and that’s something that bothered him immensely. With the ambitious desire to change the face of extreme adventure, especially Bungee India, including the way organizational safety is perceived in India, he brought in what is arguably one of the most extreme sports worldwide and set up amidst the stunning landscape of Rishikesh, India’s first highest Bungee jumping platform (83 meters).
This was consciously done to emphasize the fact to the forgetting Indian youth, that natural beauty is something that Indians do not need to go far for, and this needs to be acknowledged, cherished, respected and taken care of. Jumpin Heights has cited the most astonishing bungee jumping platform, Rishikesh, just above the river Ganges to make your jump more happening and refreshing.
In the setting up of the place, he chose to learn from the best: A team from New Zealand, the place native to this sport, was flown in to design the Jump Zone based on the original model, which is worlds apart from the previously existing Indian concept of ‘Bungy’ India in the mall or from a crane– He was very clear that he wanted to clearly distinguish between entertainment and serious adventure, and a fun evening in the mall or a park is not why Bungy jumping is on so many peoples’ bucket list.
“Being an ex-Army officer myself, I asked my fellow Army officer, and friend, Col. Manoj Kumar to formally join in to maintain the discipline that goes with such extreme adventure sports in India. This is how we began the process of building our team, which now includes several other Army officers as well. Subsequently, the Indian staff was trained extensively by our New Zealand Jump Masters to maintain impeccable standards of safety at all times. We also ensure that we continuously have a team of highly experienced foreign Jump Masters operating the site throughout the year.”

The gorgeous hilly terrains are an intrinsic part of Uttarakhand, and cannot be extricated out of the Rishikesh experience. The bungee jumping location is about few minute walk from the serene land. Please note that the 15-20 minute walk up from the Recovery point, after your Bungy, to the Cafeteria, maybe strenuous for some, considering this is a hilly area but we urge you to take this in the spirit of Rishikesh adventure tour packages, and come prepared with sports shoes.
This is a beautiful walk up nonetheless, amidst the wilderness of Rishikesh, and rest assured that we have made arrangements to make Bungee jumping places this as comfortable as possible, by providing 1 complementary bottle of water for the walk up, along with benches for a short rest, at regular intervals of the route. The bungee jumping prices are affordable and blended with other sports to make it more cost-effective. You can choose any one from the combos as per your conveniences.

We have ensured safety by hiring services of technically qualified extreme adventure sports experts with years of experience of operating these sports in New Zealand, the country which has commercialized the BUNGY.
The Jump Platforms have been designed by a team from New Zealand and technically Qualified Jump Masters, with years of experience of operating these sports in New Zealand, have been brought in to handle the operations. We ensure safety by making sure we have a highly experienced crew, high level of training, good quality bungee jumping cords, the best equipment and procedures in place, as well as a number of checks and counter checks and very thorough inspection schedules.
Discipline of all safety procedures is overseen by ex-Army officers & various safety drills are regularly practiced on site. Operating members of our staff are qualified in First Aid and certified by Red Cross, in case of emergencies.
We follow the Australian & New Zealand Standards Authority Guidelines for commercial operations in Bungy Jumping and these standards have now been incorporated to form the Indian Standards which did not exist before:
With regards the safety, there were obviously no official regulations in place, since Bungy had never been practiced on a formal scale before, and Jumpin Heights, based on the New Zealand safety standards, went on to formalize the regulations which are now taken to be the official safety standards for Bungy jumping in India.
