Background

May be true, may be not, lots of catchy words to get people's attention, but it is here for interest.

 

A description of the experience

from the website 'Incredible diary' 

Most humans by nature are thrill-seeking creatures. They may go about their daily routine lives without any trace of fun and adventure for days on end but when the opportunity presents itself, not many are there who can resist the temptation to indulge in some sort of exciting activity. They get off on the adrenaline rush that accompanies any kind of action which poses a threat or risk to our lives.

Now imagine that you are perched on top of a high structure. Suddenly someone shoves you hard and you start falling down, all the while connected to a long length of cord made of elastic. This is basically what bungee jumping is.

You may be confused as to why this is such a big deal.

Well, the sudden fall combined with the sight of the ground rushing to meet you forces your entire body to pump large amounts of adrenaline from head to toe which provides a unique out-of-body experience.

Bungee jumping, however, is not for everyone as there are some who are not prepared at all to face such a near-death experience. This activity is recommended only for individuals who are confident in themselves and are ready to test the extent of their limits
