Hence, the travel-tech startup Wandertrails have come up with top nine destinations in India that serves Jumping sports:
 
 
# Bungee jumping-
 
1. Rishikesh: Rishikesh has the highest bungee jumping spot in India, with a height of 83m and is the only destination with a fixed platform to jump from, which is a cantilever structure that extends out over a cliff to give the amazing height.
 
 
 
2. Bangalore, Karnataka: This one is for the more adventurous souls out there, with no fixed platforms, the jump has to be made from a 25m platform which is suspended from a 40m high crane.
