Canyoning

Canyoning is a new adventure sport in Nepal. It is an activity that involves abseiling, sliding, jumping, swimming, and climbing down waterfalls through steep canyon walls to deep pools. This unique combination of skills gives the canyoneer the freedom to explore some of the most ruggedly beautiful, yet forbidden places in the world.

As many true adventure seekers have discovered, the most exciting spot for swimming begins at the very edge of a 45m waterfall. After the first descent, abseil another 25m down a steep canyon, past wild rock formations, through powerful blasts of water. At the end of the excursion, make your last jump and submerge ourselves into a pool. Once on the ground, rest on a beach within the canyon walls and swim out between narrow boulders.

From sheer cliffs and slides to pounding waterfalls, you will experience all the joys of canyoning. Apart from all the fun and games and despite its apparent simplicity, this sport requires the guidance of an expert.
