Extreme bungee jumping Daily Mail
For many it's the stuff of nightmares: hurling yourself head first off the side of a cliff with nothing but a thin cord of rope to halt your certain death.
But extreme sports fans everywhere are donning harnesses and embracing the new rope jumping trend.
Originally invented in the US, rope jumping has been taken to new extremes but Russian adrenalin junkies, and now a group of rope jumpers, who go by the name of The Dream Walkers, are planning to jump in 80 of the world's most ravishing beauty spots.
Pictured here on the popular Greek island of Zakynthos, the jumpers hurl themselves over the pristine Navagio Beach, famed for its dramatic shipwreck which sits in the sands.
Also referred to as Smuggler's Cove, the white sand beach is surrounded by sheer limestone cliffs, perfect for adventurers to climb and jump from.
They jumpers plan to stage their next leaps at a cave complex in Croatia, a French viaduct, skyscrapers in Las Vegas and Johannesburg, and the Grand Canyon.
Rope jumping — a hybrid form of bungee jumping — is an even more adventurous way to experience free fall.
Rather than the springy cord used in bunjee jumping, rope jumpers use nylon ropes that stretch to absorb a fall, so instead of bouncing, jumpers slow down as the rope catches their fall.
Due to the amount of potential hazards, setting up a single rope jump can require months of work, a team of helpers and gear including hundreds of feet of pulleys and bolts.
