Rafting Adventure in Trishuli – Nepal

Rafting is an adventure sport gaining a lot of momentum and popularity, especially in northern part of Nepal and India due to the immense heights from which the rivers flow through the Himalayas. An amazing activity of teamwork and swifting through the high and quick movements of water, rapids as they are called, with all the jerks, jumps and falls in the river, rafting is a very enjoyable and fun adventure activity to do. I have done it several times in North of India and Nepal too. The most popular river in Nepal for rafting is river Trishuli, as it has many rapids, twists and turns and at the same time is not very dangerous.

The Ultimate BunGee Experience in Nepal

Craziness is the word that can best describe this adventure activity where you tie your legs with a rope and jump fall free from a good height conquering your fears. Many people don’t know but Nepal has one of the highest Bungee jumping around the world. I was very skeptical while doing this, in fact I wanted to experience it when I visited Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe and that was way before I visited Nepal but wasn’t able to make my mind whether to do it or not. This time when I was in Nepal, I finally decided to give it a try but I kept this activity for the last day of my trip (for obvious reasons, avoiding death till the end hahaha). Came the day on which I could not turn back, there were many many thoughts running in my mind during that briefing on how to jump, the best thing that the instructor told was ‘its very easy, we will say 1 2 3 jump and you have to jump, that’s it’, …

Nepal is the answer if you want to try this amazing adventure activity. With its clear skies, pure wind, breathtaking views of the mountains and lakes, Pokhara serves as the best paragliding resort in Nepal where adventure seekers, backpackers and other traveller flock in for having a perfect holiday. Paragliding is generally done with an experienced pilot with you where you go to a height, wear your gliding suit, tie the parachute on your body, take a little run towards the edge of the mountain and before you realise anything , you are no more running on the land but already in the sky at a height from where you can see 360 degrees of sheer natural beauty, breathing in the most clean air , looking down from where everything looks tiny.
