Dear Friends we invite you all for Bungee Jumping & Water Rafting at Rishikesh from 24th to 28th Dec 2015. Bungee jumping also spelt "Bungy" jumping is an activity that involves jumping from a tall structure while connected to a large elastic cord. The tall structure is usually a fixed object, such as a building, bridge or crane. The thrill comes from the free-falling and the rebound. When the person jumps, the cord stretches and the jumper flies upwards again as the cord recoils, and continues to oscillate up and down until all the kinetic energy is dissipated. Rishikesh Is also known as the gateway to the Himalayas, Rishikesh is a vibrant city and attracts lacs of people from both India and abroad for various reasons. Though for thousands of years it has been known as a pilgrimage center, in the past few years it has been emerging as the Yoga and Rafting capital of India.
