More and more modalities are emerging and are catching more travelers, who often join several of their great passions.

If you are one of those who is not afraid of anything and, also, you love that the adrenaline runs through your veins and takes over you, we are convinced that you have already tried bungee jumping. One of the most spectacular extreme sports that exist, in which the human body is completely let go and falls from a considerable height, feeling the speed and emotion during the seconds that the jump lasts. Can you imagine doing it from the most brutal places in the world? And with landscapes that leave you even muter? Here you have the options that you can not miss.
Macau Tower (China)
Surely when we talked about landscapes that leave you speechless, you were imagining nature, and you were not wrong. But first, we want to start with one of the most amazing jumps in the world. From the top of the Macau Tower, in China. Although the building reaches 331 meters, the leap is made from the top floor, at 223 meters. The fact of doing bungee jumping in the middle of the city is literally spectacular.
Royal Gorge Bridge (United States)
Now, yes, we move away from urban centers and fly to the United States, specifically to the area of the Grand Canyon of Colorado. Near Cañon City we find the Royal Gorge Bridge, a bridge over the Arkansas River and in the Natural Park, from which practiced what may well be the most extreme bungee jump in the world. Do you want to know what your height is? Nothing more and nothing less than 321 meters.
Verzasca Dam (Switzerland)
In Switzerland, we find another of the most spectacular jumps you can practice. In the Valley of Verzasca is the dam that contains Lake Vogorno. From its dike, about 220 meters high, you can not only enjoy overwhelming views, but you can also jump into the void as James Bond himself did in his day.
Bloukrans Bridge (South Africa)
In the Tsitsikamma region of South Africa, we find the Bloukrans Bridge, for many the best place on the planet to practice bungee jumping. Its height is about 216 meters, so you will imagine that the adrenaline that runs through you in this jump is obviously higher than in many of the previous ones.
The Last Resort (Nepal)
Speaking of amazing landscapes that leave a mark, we could not leave Nepal off this list. If you plan to travel to the area and want to try different adventures and experiences, we recommend you visit The Last Resort, about 3 hours from Kathmandu. There, among other sports, you can practice bungee jumping from a structure located about 160 meters high and with views that will leave you breathless.
Victoria Falls (Zimbabwe)
The height always makes a lot for the spectacularity of the jump, but the views and the place in which it is practiced are also important. That is why one of the most admired sites for bungee jumping is the bridge over the Zambezi River, in the Victoria Falls. They are about 111 meters high, but we guarantee that the landscape will be one of the best you can see throughout your life.
Nevis Highwire (New Zealand)
Another place in the world that does not stay out of any list related to extreme sports is, of course, New Zealand. Situated over the Nevis River is the Nevis Highwire Bungy or Nevis Arc where a gondola transports you 134 meters above the water for the highest bungee or swing jump since it is one of the best-known spots on the planet for bungee jumping.
