Whenever i pass by people, wearing Bungy T-shirt, written with ‘ The last Resort’ on my way walk, it reminds me my adventure done bungy jump in 2006 at The last Resort. This is situated at Panglang in Sindhupalchok district.
Along roars of Bhote khoshi high above there is a bridge. From the bridge jumping down towards the river looks scary enough. But the people are keeping up accepting the challenge to jump down with tied up rope on legs and they dare to do bungy jumping. I heard there is not any accident happened since it is opened so it is kind of safe place to give a try. This one is the third in the world for the bungy jump, so it is also a famous spot.
One has to have strong heart. If you are, give a try and have fun non other than……. only fun. Watching from the bridge down the river Bhote Koshi is wild and dangerous.
Before the trip i had to think about doing the decision, taking long long breadth for many days. The program was set and time was coming closer. I think over doing bungy jump made me like ‘ oh my god i have to jump!” It made my heart beat faster and faster.
In our group there were 6 including me and my son dare to jump. I was very excited curious, scared, nervous, kind of mixed up feelings in my mind. We rented a bus from Bhaktapur. On the way, i was very sure to make it happen but there was curd and beaten rice mixed up in my mind.
At the destination, The last Resort, we reached and we looked around, It is very cool place for recreation. Nice restaurant, rooms, and greenery around.
So felt cosy and we enjoyed a lot in get together eating good food and dancing in Nepali steps. Didn’t remember about jumping which was the right next day.
New place, so woke up early. Went for little walk around the garden and freshen up then had breakfast.
The time had come and we got ready for the jump. Lined up and there was paper to sign before jumping, which was to assure at our own risk. Then took weight . Three of us did jump in the first half of the session. My son, Nabin Mulepati, me and Bishow Kawang from our group. There were many other in the line, some foreigners and Nepali students from Ktm.
It was fun to watch every one’s face before a jump. We saw different actions like some were nervous, some were laughing. In the line front of me a young foreigner lady was sitting on the bridge, closing her eyes, holding the bridge tight, it made me scary, so i didn’t look up at her again. I tried to make myself very calm and looking at the other each jumpers.Before me, my son jumped with full of confidence. Before a jump crew member asked a question to each jumpers. My son said smiling ….im not going to die now! and he jumped and yelled loud with cheering up voice in each bouncing…..which gave me a kind of strength….then my turn…..i went there with full of sureness…….sat in front of the crew ….they tied me up with rope to my legs….i looked it very well….it seemed very secure….then i was asked the same question how i was feeling….i answered i want to fulfill my dream, flying like a bird. I saw there is a line for the jump written ‘ Why like this?’ i made myself tight…..opened both hands wide…….looked up to the both sides….where my friends were watching me jumping….there was my husband also….thought about him….. i smiled at them,.then i heard their whistle and cheer up sound,,,,,,,,then i looked to the edge at my feet. …..oh it was too scary…..i closed my eyes and jumped like jumping form the high wall…….for few seconds…my whole body was stopped…like i was numb…, i felt i was very light……i felt jumping down ln speed….i felt speed i opened my eyes, i could see nothing because i was going down in high speed so it looked blur……then the rope which was tighten in my legs gave a jurk. then i felt i’m bouncing high up then i saw trees by the sides and water in the river…. i cried yahooooooo!! while bouncing…..it bounced three times…..then i saw other crew down near the river asked me to catch the long bamboo. Then the rope from above loosen down and i got down……..i took a longer breathe and looked up at the bridge….it was high up and could see people very small. then i and my son with other jumpers came up to the hotel. It was about 20 / 30 mins hike after the jump. I felt my self confident and i was very happy. All friends and my husband who was very nervous during my jump could smile and gave us congratulations. My other 3 friends Nava Shakya, Pramin Shakya and Ramona Pradhananga did in second half session. We felt ourselves very proud.
Since then i felt some changes in myself….i felt proud and more less confident, for sure. I gained something in my life. I feel good when i remember i did the good decision.So do my friends felt, In the CD of video record we bought is written ” you are brave enough” We had proud story to tell after coming back to our other friends and relatives. We received positive reaction, which is very good thing.
