As far as prolonged hits of adrenaline go, there are few better ways to get your kicks than trekking in Nepal. That feeling you get as you walk through the clear mountain air and scale high passes is simply unbeatable. Well almost.
If youre a hardened adrenaline junky, then you can take your Nepal tours up to a whole new level by combining an exhilarating trek with some heart-pumping adventure sports. So what exactly is on offer in this high-altitude playground?
Rafting in Nepal is a great way to give your legs a break from walking and let your arms do the hard work for a change.
Home to some of the wildest and most spectacular rivers in the world, Nepal is not short of locations and routes for you to try.
Go for a day trip to the Trishuli or Bhote Koshi rivers or go further a field and spend a few nights camping on the banks of the Kali Gandaki or Karnali rivers for a truly unforgettable white-water experience.
As its one of the highest regions in the world, most of your trip to Nepal will be spent looking down on the rest of the world. So why not take to the skies to get a different perspective of the country?
The main hub for paragliding and other air-based thrills in Nepal is Pokhara. Here both tandem and solo flights are available, though if you want to take to the skies alone youll need to hold the relevant paragliding qualifications.
Bungee jumping is one of those things that everyone wants to try at some point in their lives, so use your trip to Nepal to tick it off of your bucket list.
One of the most famous bungee jumps in Nepal is at The Last Resort. Which, if you organise your tour through Royal Mountain Travel, can easily be incorporated into a longer tour.
Here you can jump from a bridge 160m high into a spectacular gorge, getting a unique view of the landscape as you fall if you manage to keep your eyes open that is.
With so much on offer, Nepal has got to be a paradise on earth for adrenaline addicts everywhere. So if you want to get a little more excitement into your life, head to Kathmandu and get ready for some real adventure.
