Trip Overview

Nepal is an adventure haven. With its towering peaks, and diverse flora and fauna, the nation presents the ideal opportunity for an adventurous trip. Experience the thrill of bungee jumping, hiking, white-water rafting, paragliding, mountain biking, and wildlife safaris in Nepal on this trip.

Your adventure begins from Kathmandu with a sightseeing tour of the city’s prime cultural heritage Sites. After exploring the UNESCO World Heritage Sites, you head down to the Himalayan river of Trishuli. In Trishuli you’ll spend an exciting day rafting on its fast-flowing rapids. More excitement awaits you after your wet and wild adventure in Trishuli.

Make your way to Pokhara and take to the skies. Paraglide and feel the freedom of the birds. Enjoy a bird’s-eye view of Pokhara city. Along with Phewa Lake set in the middle like a sapphire from high above the sky. Hike up to the hilltop viewpoint of Sarangkot for inspiring views of Himalayan peaks (Annapurna Range, Dhaulagiri, and Machhapuchhre). Enjoy a magical sunrise from a vantage point. Watch the dawn breaking over snow-capped peaks, splashing the white mountains in hues of red, pink, and golden.

Scream ‘bunngggyyyyyyy’ as you jump and free-fall from a 70-meter high Bungy tower bridge. Explore Chitwan National Park and enjoy some wild encounters with its endangered inhabitants – one-horned rhinoceros, Royal Bengal tiger, and spotted eagle- to name a few. Wind up your trip by riding through the rough trails of Kathmandu Valley on a mountain bike.

Built almost in the middle of Phewa Lake is the island temple of Barahi. The two-storied pagoda temple is dedicated to the female force Shakti.

Seti River Gorge
Carved by Seti-Gandaki, the gorge is one of the natural wonders of Pokhara. K.I. Singh Bridge at Bagar, Mahendrapool & Prithivi highway Bridge near the bus park, provides a perfect view of the river’s dreadful rush and the deep gorge made by the turbulent flow of white water.

Davis Falls
Locally known as Patale Chhango, Davis Falls lie in the southern flank of the Pokhara valley. Here the stream flowing from Phewa lake collapses and surges down the rock into a deep gorge, leaping through several potholes. This is hugely popular with tourists and locals alike.

Gupteshwar Cave
The revered Gupteshwar Cave is situated 2 km from Pokhara airport. The entrance is right across from Davis Falls. The cave is almost 3km long and has some big hall-sized rooms and some passages where you have to crawl on all fours. This cave holds special value to Hindus since a phallic symbol of Lord Shiva is preserved here in the condition it was discovered.

Tibetan Refugee Camp
The Tibetan camp Tashi Ling, which is behind Gupteshwor Cave, is renowned for the production and trade of woolen carpets and other handicrafts. The original Tibetan settlers in this region migrated to Nepal in the ‘50s.

Museums
