Kolad is the perfect destination for thrill-seekers looking for a quick weekend adventure, owing to the easy connectivity via road and trains. In Kolad, one can do activities like whitewater rafting, trekking, camping, and now bungee jumping near Mumbai.
The bungee jump platform is 130 feet high, which is equivalent to the 13th floor of a building. You’ll climb to the top, and WHOOOSH – before you know it, you’re racing the wind to the ground below!
If you haven’t had your fill of Kolad yet, there are a plethora of other activities you can do! And once you’ve tasted bungee jumping near Mumbai, you’re going to want to check out India’s tallest bungee jump in Rishikesh!
08:00 am: Arrive at the bungee jumping site.
08:00-08:30: After you arrive, the instructors will brief you on the safety procedures and introduce to the equipment.
08:30-09:00: As you strap into your gear, enjoy the stunning views of the lush forests and the splashing Kundalika River from the jumping platform. Send your prayers and clutch onto the ropes as you jump over the edge, plummeting straight to the ground below, screaming at the top of your lungs!
09:00 am: Once you’ve conquered this feat, you’ll be commemorated with a certificate and an endless supply of bragging rights!
There are many fun adventures you can do in Kolad, but bungee jumping and river rafting are the most popular. Whitewater river rafting in the Kundalika is a great choice, but you will not be able to do it on the same day as your bungee jump, as river rafting in Kolad also begins at 08:00 am.
If you have the time, plan to spend a night in Kolad. You can arrive at 08:00 am on the first day and complete your bungee jump. After that, enjoy a day of fun activities at your campsite. Different campsites offer different activities: Burma Bridge, Tarzan Swing, bumper boats, banana boat ride, etc. In the evening, you can enjoy a bonfire if the weather permits. The next morning, you can go rafting!

It’s natural to be scared before you try any adventure sport as there are always risks involved. However, with the right equipment, correct instructions, and the company of a jumpmaster, the adventure becomes one of the safer ways to get your adrenaline high. The jumpmaster will be present at all times to assist you and ensure your safety. Top-grade gear also makes sure that you are safe and sound throughout your jump.
'Thank you team TGN and specially Venkat for planning and coordinating and being attentive to our needs and making good recommendations (like renting bike etc). 3 days trip from Dehradun to Rishikesh was really satisfactory. Guidance given by him from starting to end was very helpful. During the trip, staying in tent was too good where we enjoyed the nice scenery nearby the river, food and flowers very much. The staff was very supportive and humble. One should definitely try the thrilling experiences of rafting and bungee in Rishikesh at least once in life. The tent in camp was so much spacious for all 3 of us. Overall it was a very good and chilling experience. Looking forward for more such outings with TGN :) Recommendation: Need to organise some more activities to enjoy camp fire at night'
'On behalf of me & my friends I would want to take a moment to express my sense of gratitude and appreciation for team TGN. I planned an adventure trip to Rishikesh which happened to be a wonderful experience. I thank Mr. Venkat who I feel is an important asset to the company for planning and organising the entire trip. His excellency in managing customer relationship is truly commendable which plays a vital role in bringing business to any enterprise. Definitely looking for more such plans with team TGN in future. All the best'
'Badly need to work on their website to sync information. Booked a trip (3 room) with them (ac cottage stay) for Rishikesh with 100% refund policy as per the link shared in mail. But I was surprised when on the next day of booking, I received the message saying that the cottage I paid for and received a booking confirmation has been allocated to someone else. Instead I had to pay extra for a non ac tent(with cooler instead of ac) property at the similar location. But the bad experience did not end there. When we had to cancel the room for 5 of the members, they applied a cancellation fees which was not stated anywhere in cancellation policies on website link. I will not suggest anyone to use this site. Please book directly to avoid any such inconvenience and surprises owing to misleading policies. Note: I had contacted the property owner directly and he had quoted a lower price(all inclusive package via mail) on direct booking than thegreatnext. So think hard before opting for TGN if you gave option to reach owner directly. We had opted for TGN only based on the full refund policy that the site stated. Edit: I would acknowledge the efforts from Tanvi from thegreatnext who tried to accomodate the updated requirements. I have given 2* only because of her inputs. However, I would like to point out that my concern is not with any person but it is with lack of clarity with policies and syncing with the property owners at the end of Thegreatnext website. This is a major drawback that needs to be bridged.'
I am out of words to describe Rendezvous Camp. It gives you must have once in a lifetime experience, true luxury, cleanest water of river Ganga near campsite. The food was way too good, felt like home, the staff was too friendly and co-operative. They are the challenge takes and never put you down rather they would exceed your expectations. I suggest this camp 'only' to whomever wants to travel to Rishikesh. Mr. Venkat from TGN was too patient and prompt to go through all girls' random thoughts and fluctuating plans. He only made me put all my trust in him and walk right into the camp without any worries, knowing he will help us out anywhere, anytime.
