Commercial bungee jumping began with the New Zealander, A J Hackett, who made his first jump from Auckland's Greenhithe Bridge in 1986. During the following years Hackett performed a number of jumps from bridges and other structures (including the Eiffel Tower), building public interest in the sport, and opening the world's first permanent commercial bungee site; the Kawarau Bridge Bungy at Queenstown in the South Island of New Zealand. Hackett remains one of the largest commercial operators, with concerns in several countries.
The bridge now also grants a view of river Anduin. The exact place where the Pillars of the Kings stood can be seen if you walk along the path next to the bridge till you reach Chard Farm Vineyard . They were digital models being placed at that spot after the filming, but you can easily see them in your mind when looking from the bridge.
