NEPAL-The Ultimate Adventure Destination

Seldom people will think of Nepal as a place for adventurers but we’re here to change that perception. Not only was it super exciting but also really affordable as compared to other countries!

Bungy & Canyon Swing


3rd highest bungy (160m) in the world!

After learning that Nepal has one of the highest bungy in the world, Daniel was determined to give it a go. And it didn’t disappoint us, it was really super exciting! We also did the canyon swing together and the free fall was like WAHHHHH! The free fall time for the canyon swing was twice as long as compared to bungy!

Canyon swing at The Last Resort in Nepal

Who we booked with:
The Last Resort – a little pricey, but no choice as they’re the only tour operator in Kathmandu for Bungy

245EUROS for 2 pax – We did the tandem swing package plus 1 pax bungy which included lunch and transport to and fro.

White Water Rafting

Best white water rafting experience ever!!

We’ve tried white water rafting before in New Zealand, but THIS, this wins hands down. It was absolutely thrilling and nerve wrecking from the start to the end! It was definitely a raging river with countless angry rapids! We were so close to being thrown off the raft several times! Thank god we were all young and nimble and made it out alive. Phew!

Who we booked with:
Can’t recall the agency name, but there are several tour agencies along Lakeside that can help you book your white rafting tour.

They have 2 packages – half day (1.5 hours rafting time, 4,000rupees) and full day (3 hours rafting time, 4,500rupees). We only tried the half day package and it was definitely exciting, not so sure about the full day rafting.

We didn’t have the time to give this a go, but look at the breathtaking view below! Quite an experience we can imagine to be able to paraglide that close to the Himalayas! We heard from some fellow travellers that Nepal is one of the best places to paraglide.

Ultra Light Flight

Another opportunity to fly really closely to the mountain range would be to take the ultra light flight! It’s a very small aircraft which can only take 1 passenger. This activity is really costly though, around US$130 for a 15 minute flight? Hence we didn’t go for it D:

Multi-Day Trek In The Himalayas


2 weeks trek to Everest Base Camp!

Definitely a must do if you’re heading to Nepal. Although 2 weeks might sound daunting, it’s actually a very manageable trek. You stay in comfortable lodges with hot water, proper warm cooked food, porters to carry your main bags, etc. You just need to take care of yourself and the agency will take care of everything else. Check out our post on what to expect when trekking to Everest Base Camp!

Who we booked with:
Mosaic Adventure – very reliable and trustworthy local agency. We also like that they specialise in organising small groups which was more flexible compared to large groups.

1,500USD for 20 days, includes a 1 day city tour in kathmandu, all meals during the trek, 1 guide and 2 porters for the trek.

Due to time constraint, we gave this activity a miss. If we’re ever back here, we would definitely try this!

So adrenaline junkies, what are you waiting for! Book your tickets to Nepal NOWWW! 😀
