I am an adrenaline junkie and I was visiting Rishikesh for a cousin's wedding in Dec 2016 and I made sure I visited Jumpin Heights. I came here with my father and my brother in law. This place is about 45 mins drive from Rishikesh and we decided to drive ourselves instead of taking the bus from Hotel which leaves at 9:00 AM, 10:30 AM. We wanted to leave early and come back early, so we could attend the wedding.The drive to Jumpin heights wasn't that great but it was short drive and totally worth what we were about to do. Be prepared to spend about 3-4 hours if you are doing all 3 activities during december. Wear proper shoes as there is a lot of hiking involved. They don't allow Go Pro's so no need to bring any cameras or Go Pro's.
Upon reaching there you have to pay Rs 100 entry fees, then you are made to watch a short video and sign other disclaimer forms. I decided to do all 3 activities as I was not sure if I will get a chance again to come back in the near future. My dad and brother in law also wanted to all 3 activities, but my dad was overage for giant swing and bungee jumping and was allowed to do only flying fox. They don't allow people above 45 years of age for any of the activities but since my dad was fit they allowed him to do flying fox. We were visiting in December so it wasn't crowded at all. We did flying fox first, it's a short hike from reception to flying fox.We wanted to do flying fox in tandem but the combined weight for 3 us was above the safe limit, so me and my dad did in tandem while my brother in law did solo. Flying fox was a good starter for what was about to come soon. Flying fox is really peaceful and relaxing way to enjoy scenery at Rishikesh and the whole experience lasts about 8-10 mins. Next we went for Giant swing, so we went back to the reception picked up our tickets and hiked to the platform about 15 mins hike from reception. They don't allow anybody else inside the platform apart from individuals who are actually doing the activities. So my dad had to wait outside and he was watching from outside.Prior to coming here I had already done Bungee about 8 times but had never tried the giant swing, so I didn't know what to expect, but it was an incredible experience. They bring you down after the giant swing stops swinging and you have to hike back to cafe and reception. Now this hike is quite steep and takes about 15 mins, and this hike back kind of kills all the rush. So another 30 - 40 mins before I reached the platform again for Bungee Jumping. Prior to coming here I had done bungee jumping but from smaller height, so this was an awesome experience jumping from here.Remember to smile for the camera :) Once you hike back to the cafe you can ask the receptionist to play your videos on the big screen and then you have an option of buying the videos if you like it. Since there is only one screen it is quite a chaos getting to see your video. They write a no. on your wrist for video, make sure to tell that no. of the person at the cafe.
The only thing I would change here would be videography and they way are capturing the experience. They don't have many camera angles and the quality isn't great, so I would request the owner to add more camera angles to capture the whole experience in a better way, plus they still distribute the video on DVD's, this has to change soon. Newer laptop don't even have DVD ROM. I got all my videos on .avi and when I converted it to MP4 format, the quality was gone.
But all in all a great experience, I really enjoyed it and I also got a free T Shirt since I did all 3 activities :) Have fun
