Terrifying Places to go Bungee Jumping

For some, the thought of bungee jumping makes their stomachs turn. I mean, jumping off of the edge of a bridge with nothing but a harness and rope holding you together is a lot to take in. But for others, plunging off of a platform is exhilarating.

Bungee jumping is actually safer than it looks. The equipment goes through extensive maintenance and your guides have been through intense training.

Bungee jumping destinations are situated all over the world. However, the most terrifying are located in places such as Switzerland, South Africa and China.

Stop avoiding your fears, confront them, and enjoy the extreme heights, spectacular scenery and the most intense adrenaline rush of your life.
