The mountains of the Zhangjiajie National Park in the Hunan Province of China offer a view that is unique in the world. The tree-covered sandstone formations rise up like skewers – it looks like you’re in a fairy tale or a science fiction film … No wonder, because the scenery in the blockbuster ‘Avatar’ was inspired by this landscape, for example.
But now to the main point: The glass bridge in Zhangjiajie Park is also the highest bungee jumping point in the world with a free fall of 260 meters ! For spectators, the glass bridge alone offers enough horror factor at a dizzying height …

The Rio Grande Gorge bridge is the 5th highest point in the world for bungee jumping, at 206 meters ! For around $ 400 you can take your plunge into the gorge here.
The second highest traffic bridge in the USA was also called “the bridge to nowhere”, as no road route was planned on the other side when it was built. Now it’s a legendary stopover on Route 64 in New Mexico – not just for bungee jumpers!

Fun fact: It was on this bridge that Woody Harrelson and Julliette Lewis got married in their roles as Mickey and Mallory in the legendary film Natural Born Killers !

Kawarau Bridge, New Zealand

The famous “Lord of the Rings” landscape of New Zealand alone makes you feel adventurous – but those who are still looking for a very special memory can take on the popular bungee jumping spot in Kawarau.

The place is perfect for beginners , with a height of only 43 meters .
