10 Most Exciting Bungee Jumping Sites in the World

December 27, 2011 Leave a comment

Bungee jumping is one of the most daring adventure sports around. What leaves most people breathless during a bungee venture are the rebounds that occur due to the stretching and snapping of the cord. Bungee jumping was first practiced as a rite of passage for the youths of Pentecost Island in Vanuatu.

Since the modern times, several records have been made and broken by bungee-jumpers world over. The Guinness Book of World Records of the highest bungee jump was by AJ Hackett from Macau Tower of China from an altitude of 233 meters.

Here I have compiled some of the most exciting bungee jumping sites around the globe. I hope you will like it.
