If you have the lack of adrenalin and desire to re-fuel your trip with bright impressions, then Beijing bungee jumping is waiting for you in five various spots. Here jumping areas are divided into three kinds. The first one is Bungee platform, which is extended from the cliff, then Bungee Tower and last one are the Bungee Rocket. The first spot that we advise to try is Bungee Jumping in Shidu, which belongs to the first type. In Shidu you will have two platforms of 48m and of 55m. Both platforms are extended by Juma River. The second type of bungee jumping - cliff tower can be experienced at Qinglong Gorge. It is the highest bungee cliff tower made from iron and cement. Another cliff platform can be found at Longqing Gorge. If you find the bungee rocket the safest option to try this extreme sport, then you can visit Yanxi Lake (88 km north of Beijing), or at Yeshanpo (110 km south-west of Beijing).
