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.

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.”
