Great ready for a full body experience in the heart of the Himalayas. Choose from a 1, 2, or 3-day canyoning program and take part in abseiling, jumping, and sliding down steep canyon walls and waterfalls to deep pools below.
The Panglang route is open year around and is the perfect beginners circuit. You will start with an introduction to abseiling on the first waterfall. As you gain confidence you will tackle a number of challenges ending with a 45-meter wall!
Who knew Nepal had jungles?! Using Chitwan as your base, trek into the wilderness with your guide and immerse yourself in the local wildlife.
An extraordinary number of butterflies and birds mix and mingle with deer, crocodiles, rhino, elephants and even tigers. Your guide will teach you about tracking animals and you will climb high into trees for safe vantage points of the area’s largest beasts.
Whether you just want to get out of the city for the day or truly immerse yourself in Nepal’s wilderness, mountain biking is a perfect way to explore the country.
From Kathmandu, you can bike to an organic farm, pottery villages, and the suburbs of Patan and Bhaktapur. Or you may like to go further afield and cycle through magical lands near the border of Tibet. Pass small villages, old temples on river islands, stupas with prayer flags, and local trading places. A visit to the Tatopani hot springs is also a nice way to experience the journey.
Let us know your skillset and passions and Backpacker Concierge can assist in the coordination of unique biking excursions.
Tumbling from the snow-capped peaks of Tibet, the Bhote Kosi River is the steepest in Nepal and home to world-class rafting. Make this an overnight trip from Kathmandu and combine it with canyoning for an adrenaline-packed experience.
During low flow seasons, the Bhote Kosi is a classic run and increases to a 4+ during the melt. The 18km route takes you through stunning, emerald green villages and is punctuated by challenging rapids. Now is your chance to learn how to raft in the Himalayas!
