Adventure Activities

Bungy Nepal may be the most spectacular jump on the planet. AT 160m high it is Nepal’s ultimate rush and one of the longest free-falls in the world. The stunning natural surroundings so close to Tibet make the jump an almost magical experience. You can book bungy for your clients as a day trip from Kathmandu or combine it with a stay and other activities.

On the day of the jump the jump master will first give you briefing before writing jumpers’ weight on their respective hands and tells them in which group they will be jumping.

Our experts canyoning guides will lead you in abseiling, jumping and sliding down steep canyon walls and waterfalls to deep pools below.

High rope courses are recognized worldwide as one of the best team building activities. The Last Resort now introduces this adventure in Nepal and invites organizations, companies and school or group of friends to come and play !

v) Rafting on Bhote Koshi
The Bhote Koshi river is a very steep and very continuous mountain stream, a unique combination of exceptionally fun and challenging rapids without it ever getting past the point of recreation.

The thundering of the next rapid is never far downstream and only occasional pools of calm give a chance to reflect on the awesome beauty surrounding the river. Emerald green fields are terraced high above the river on precipitous slopes, curious villagers lining suspension bridges are amazed as we plunge through cascading waves and chutes of foam. Rafting on the Bhote Koshi is a full body experience, with much more involved than simply paddling forwarded and backward. One of the most common paddle commands on the Bhote Koshi is “hold on”.

We run the upper part of Bhote Koshi River and is much more steeper and has bigger and faster rapids. It goes on for about 3.5 hours. The rapids are bigger than the first day and goes up to grade 5. The rafting bus will take you from the resort after breakfast around 9.30 am. It is about 15 minutes drive from the resort to the rafting starting point. Lunch will be served on the river bank. After the completion of rafting, the bus will take everyone to the resort.

01Night/02 Days Rafting on Bhote Koshi River

Rapids: Gerbil in the plumbing, Frog in a blender, Exlax, The Great Wall, Liquid bliss, Dazed and Confused.

Just four hours away from Kathmandu, the Bhote Koshi is without a doubt the most exciting thing you can do in Nepal and quite possibly one of the best two day rafting trips offered anywhere in the world. The Bhote Koshi is a very steep and continuous mountain stream, a unique combination of exceptionally fun and challenging rapids without ever getting past the point of recreation. Ultimate Descents are proud of their eco-adventure camp at the Borderlands Resort on the Bhote Koshi. Set in eight acress of sprawling terraces right beside the river surrounded by mountains, forests and waterfalls; it is a serene and captivating environment.

Day 01:
Start from Kathmandu early in the morning (06 am) and drive to rafting put in point for approx. 4 hours. Upon arrival at the put in point, which is just below the Dam on the Upper Sunkoshi, 40km south of the Tibetan Border, unload all the gear and prepare for first day’s rafting. The rafting crew will brief you about the techniques you will need to make your trip as exciting but as safe as possible. In the drills, the whitewater floating position and more. Your river adventure will be much more satisfying once ‘Swiftwater Rescue Technician (SRT)’ internationally certificated river guides, which means that, after two days on the Bhote Koshi, you will be qualified to do rafting anywhere in the world on class IV and V – rapids. Lunch will be served either before the start of the rafting or after couple of hours of rafting downstream, depending on the time.

After a day of rafting and training, we will all drive to Borderlands, an oasis and temple of tranquility nestled in the curves of the flowing rivers and Himalayan foothills. This is a perfect opportunity to take in the view, fresh air, and peace that only nature can offer. Your overnight stay will not feel long enough.

Day 02:
In the morning, everyone packs their gear and gathers for hot drinks and a welcome, hearty breakfast. It’s all action today and we will have 4 to 4 hours (depends on the water level) on the river, experiencing pure whitewater all the way downstream. After a series of class 3 rapids we drop into the first class 4 affectionately known as Gerbil in the Plumbing. From Gerbil there is a stretch of class 3 whitewater and then we come to crux of the day, which is a long, technical rapid called Frog in a Blender (guess who’s the frog). The guides often scout this one, as with changing water levels the ride can become very interesting (Note; the water level must allow to rund this rapid).

After completion of rafting drive back to Kathmandu.

02 Nights/03 Days Fortress Trek (Dugunagadi Trek)
Due to the mistreatment of Nepali Merchants by Tibetan authorities, a dispute broke out in 1854. Thus, the Dugunagadi Fortress was strategically built by the Nepali Army to attack the Bhot, a Tibetan region behind the Himalaya. During this time, many border skirmishes occurred and in March 1856, a truce was finally reached.

Day 01: The Dugunagadi Fortress (2400m, 3 hours)
Start from Kathmandu early in the morning (06 am) and drive to The Borderland for approx. 4 hours. After bruch at the resort, you will take a 25 inutes bus ride to the Lracha suspension bridge, located just below the village of Emashing. The trail winds through a number of small, interesting Buddhist villages, past chortens and Sherpa houses. This historic trail was once the old trade route between Nepal and Tibet. The Dugunagadi Fortress is a maze of crumbling walls strategically situated on a plateau. The views are stunning, by day one gazes at Tibetan snowcapped peaks and by night, the lights of Khasa, the first town north of the Friendship Bridge, glisten throughout the dark evening sky. We will spend our first night under the stars here.

Day 02: Chagam (2200m, 4/5 hours)
From the fortress, follow the path through the gate. The gateway is adorned with religious paintings and a colorful Mandala on the roof. The trails ascends to the ‘way of the dead’, a route used for carrying bodies to the religious funeral ceremony. The path slowly ascends to Tashitham a quaint village adorned with fluttering prayer flags. The trail turns and splits; take the lower path and continue on until you reach Chagam. Our evening’s campsite is situated in a schoolyard, a central meeting place for smiling children and villagers alike.

Day 03: Listi (2180m, 4/5 hours)
In the morning we visit a renowned nunnery housing 300 nuns. Some travel as far away as Lhadakh in order to spend time learning and mediating here. The layout of the village is unusual, in that each nun has her own house, thus creating a colorful spattering of red, yellow, green and white homes throughout the countryside. Much of the day’s walk is along carefully sculpted, steep terraces. The evening’s site is perched on a mountain ridge at the entrance to Listi. There are several mani walls, which are constructed from Om Mani Padme Hum rock carvings, as well as beautiful views overlooking the Bhote Koshi. It’s long way down, but from here you can see The Borderland in the background alongside a sharp bend of the river.

After completion of trek drive back to Kathmandu.

To run the rafting trip there must be minimum 6 pax where as 4 pax are required to run Canyoning and Trekking.
