The Langtang Trek

This beautiful nation of hills and mountains makes for an excellent paradise for travelers, adventurers, and explorers looking for great trekking or sightseeing experience. With its stunning hills and mountains, a country like this makes a fantastic trekking or sightseeing destination for adventurers, travelers, and explorers. One of the short hiking routes in Nepal, the Langtang trek offers fantastic views from a lowland jungle with banana trees and monkeys to mountains and glaciers above the valley floor. However, Short doesn’t necessarily mean easy. The Trek starts off quite challenging, with many long and steep climbs that one would expect in a trek in Nepal. Despite that, the thrill and beauty of Nepal you get to experience during this Trek can rarely be matched by any other place in the world.

About Langtang Mountain Trek

Langtang is 120km north of Kathmandu, on the border with China; it runs through the areas of Nepal that were most affected by the earthquake. As you trek along Langtang’s ridge, you’ll pass through stunning forests, yak pastures, and alpine meadows. At the end of the Trek, you’ll be treated to panoramic views of vast valleys.

In the Langtang Valley, you will find the most breathtaking landscapes, authentic culture, and heartwarming hospitality that will make your trip a memorable one. The valley is only an hour or so from Kathmandu and is one of Nepal’s most lovely regions.

Although the Langtang Mountain trek is not the most popular Trek, like Everest Base Camp Trek or Annapurna Base Camp Trek, it provides travelers with a sense of adventure and thrill that these other treks may not provide. On top of that, Views of the Himalayas, Langtang valley, and beyond Tibet can be seen from Kyanjin Ri, a destination on the Trek.

Preparing For the Langtang Trek

The tallest peak on the Langtang Himalayan circuit is the Langtang Lirung peak at an altitude of 7,234 meters. However, the highest point on our Trek is on Kyanjin Gompa at an elevation of 3,800 meters. This might not be much for frequent trekkers, but it still is quite an elevation for newcomers. Therefore, people with lung diseases should avoid or take precautions before engaging in such activities due to the difficulty of adapting to such a high altitude. In addition, people might experience altitude sickness when they are at such elevated altitudes.

The Trek can be easy to moderately difficult depending upon your liking of hills and off-road paths. The best time to engage in these treks would be during the transitional seasons from March to June and September to November. However, the cold can be a big factor during the journey.

Necessary Permits

You’ll need a TIMS card for the Langtang trek, as well as a national park permit, which costs around NPR 5000 or around US$40 per person. TIMS cards can be obtained from the Tourism Board Office in Kathmandu, located at Pradarshani Marg, Bhrikutimandap.

Accommodations and facilities

The trekkers have to spend nearly all of their time in small tea houses along the Langtang route. The services and facilities offered in such places are quite basic; however, the hospitality from the locals is excellent.

Itinerary and The Trek itself

Completing the whole Langtang Trek might take up to 5 days to 10 days, depending upon your pace during the Trek. Initially, you need to acquire a Nepali visa if you’re not from Nepal and get to Kathmandu. When in Kathmandu, you need to either book a private vehicle or ride the local bus that’ll take you to Syabrubesi. 

From Lama Hotel, the trail continues climbing through the forest with occasional glimpses of Mount Langtang Lirung between the trees on the trail. The path continues for five to six hours and passes through Ghoda Tabela, a small settlement with few livestock and remnants of the 2015 earthquake in Nepal. Finally, after reaching Mundu, you get to rest there for the night.

From Mundu, the trail ascends through yak pastures, and the views widen as the valley opens up further. Finally, after crossing small streams and moraines, it leads to the settlement of Kyangjin. At more than 3,800 meters, Kyangjin is the highest point of the Trek unless you decide to climb one of the peaks of Langtang. So, you need to take a rest day and enjoy and adapt to the elevation. 

On the fourth day, you can choose whether to rest and enjoy the Kyangjin hospitality or explore some more. The monastery and cheese factory are both worth visiting, as are the ice faces and tumbling glaciers of Langtang Lirung or the ascent of Kyangjin Ri right behind the village.

If you return to Kyangjin from the main trailhead, you will retrace the path you just took up the valley, following the Langtang Khola to Mundu village and on to Ghora Tabela. The return hike will be shorter than the ascent. After lunch, continue down the steep slope to Lama Hotel.

The hike back from Lama Hotel is fairly simple. While enjoying the quiet forests and hills, you can retract your steps back toward Syabru Besi. Although if you should take a detour from Rimche to Syabru Besi via Sherpa Gaon if you're feeling fit. The journey will take longer, but it'll surely be worth it.

If you have more time, you should consider adding the nearby Tamang Heritage Trail to the tour, which offers another 4-6 days of hiking and offers an inside look into the ethnic Tamang people. 

 

The difficulty of the Trek

Despite the Langtang trek being shorter than most trekking tours in Nepal, the difficulty is not a walk in the park. The steep path and cold weather can make it difficult for inexperienced travelers. If unsure, a trekking guide can be hired for a better experience. Additionally, getting traveling insurance before embarking on the Trek can be a good safety blanket.

  • Arrival & Departure transport via private Car/Van/Bus.

Rafting Tour in the Bheri River

Nepal is a nation filled with adventurous locations and gorgeous mountains, rivers, and lakes. A rafting trip through Nepal’s numerous world-class rivers is a fun and exciting adventure. You can enjoy a day’s rafting or choose a trip that allows you to camp on the river and explore the surrounding culture and geography. Nepal is considered a paradise for river runners. There are several grades of whitewater rafting trips available to suit any interest or preference.

Among the best places to white water raft, Nepal has some of the world’s wildest and most spectacular rivers. Beautiful mountains, exhilarating white water rapids, warm water, and fascinating cultural experiences are what make Nepal one of the world’s top rafting destinations.

You can combine the Bheri River rafting trip with a wildlife safari tour in nearby National Parks or the nearby trekking locations for those interested in a long day’s expedition. Please get in touch with us here at Pokhara Info if you have any questions about rafting in Nepal. We will provide you with the best options and packages. 

About Bheri

Bheri River, rising high in the Himalayas in Nepal, is one of the most popular rivers for fishing, as well as one of the easiest rivers to go water-adventuring on. Being situated in the far western part of the country, this river holds many mysteries that should be explored. As part of the Lower Karnali River system in the far western region of Nepal, the Bheri River flows into the Dolpo region through Surkhet Valley.  

In spite of its deep ripples, mellow rapids, and fast flow, it is an excellent river for rafting. It boasts a breathtaking landscape, magnificent blue waters, and beautiful villages. There are many other benefits of rafting in Bheri, including excellent fishing, unspoiled villages, ever-smiling locals, blue water, white sand beaches, and pleasant campsites.

Tour Overview

The breathtaking view of hills and mountains, along with the abundance of flora and fauna, adds to the beauty of the rippling waters of the Bheri River. The river rafting journey starts in Sami Ghats and ends in Jammu. As we complete our rafting journey, we can explore the Royal Bardiya National Park to get a once-in-a-lifetime safari experience. We can explore and trek through the park to enjoy the natural beauty.

This trip can take between 5-7 days, depending on what you are looking for, and it will prove to be a major river journey that has to be considered not only one of the best in the world but also one of the best in the world. Our journey takes us through some of Nepal’s remotest areas, giving you a chance to experience the wilderness.

You will marvel at the most beautiful historical and cultural sites throughout the valley. You will be amazed at the diversity of cultures and traditions prevalent there. Take in as much culture as you can on this day.

We will leave Kathmandu early in the morning for Nepalgunj. After arriving at Nepalgunj, we will take a short drive to Samjhi Ghat. Once there, we will stay in a deluxe resort.

Starting from Samjhi Ghat, the rafting journey begins. After about 20 minutes of rafting, we will come across our first rapid, which is one of many that we will encounter. The Bheri River is relatively unexplored because of its remoteness.  

During the first rafting section, you will experience exciting rapids. Once we finish lunch at the bank of Bheri, you will get to explore more, so take your time lazing around on the sandy beaches. As we raft, we will come across more and more of these beauties until we reach Kumalgaun, where we will spend the night.

 

Our trip will again begin by rafting to Jammu, which is perhaps the most exciting part of our entire journey; filled with narrow gorges and sheer cliffs and interspersed with open valleys where small villages are located. In this area, there are lots of beautiful beaches where we can camp for the night.

After rafting through the river, we reach the confluence of the Bheri and Karnali rivers after an hour of floating. This park is one of the most beautiful and diverse in Nepal. Upon entering the national park from the gorge section, we will enjoy the lush greenery and the variety of flora and fauna found in the beautiful Terai region.

Our journey will begin with Nepalgunj, where it all began, and we will explore its local culture before returning to Kathmandu, where we will relax. If you want, you can spend a few days in downtown Kathmandu looking around, shopping for souvenirs, and chilling in the Durbar Marg area. You will take pleasure in browsing cafe shops and shopping around the downtown area until you leave Kathmandu.

According to rafting experts, Bheri is easier to raft because its rapids aren’t as violent as those on other rafting rivers. Taking a rafting trip in Bheri will allow you to explore some of the remote areas of the region, have an opportunity to experience some unspoiled cultures, and enjoy beautiful views of Nepal’s natural scenery. It’s often possible to observe wild animals in their natural habitats while spending warm and cozy nights on the white sand beaches along the river. This rafting adventure is a good way to escape the polluted city for a week.

Rafting Tour to Tamur River

A rafting trip through Nepal’s numerous world-class rivers is a fun and exciting adventure. You can enjoy a day’s rafting or choose a trip that allows you to camp on the river and explore the surrounding culture and geography. Nepal is considered a paradise for river runners, with rivers such as Seti, Trishuli, Tamur, Koshi, and more. There are several grades of whitewater rafting trips available to suit any interest or preference.

Among the best places to white water raft, Nepal has some of the world’s wildest and most spectacular rivers. Beautiful mountains, exhilarating white water rapids, warm water, and fascinating cultural experiences are what make Nepal one of the world’s top rafting destinations.

You can combine the Tamur River rafting trip with a wildlife safari tour in nearby National Parks for those interested in a long day’s expedition. Please get in touch with us here at Pokhara Info if you have any questions about rafting in Nepal. We will provide you with the best options and packages. 

About the River and Trip

With Pokhara Info, you can experience a wild rafting trip in Nepal’s faster rivers. This is probably the best way to enjoy both mountain rafting and trekking in Nepal, with spectacular scenery, incredible white water, and an unspoiled valley. 

There are five tributaries of the Tamur that drain the snow of the third highest peak in the world, Kanchenjunga. The Tamur is the sixth largest river in Nepal and has an air of power, but also of being constrained by its valley sides. In 1990, the Tamur was the first commercial run on the river, and there have been relatively few descents since then. It offers exceptional views of the Himalayan range, including Mt. Kanchenjunga, Mt. Everest, and Mt. Makalu. This trip takes you on a 120 km descent through some of the most exciting rapids in the world, with most of them in the 3 to 4 range and some in the five range, making it one of the world’s best white water expeditions.

Overview

Starting in Kathmandu, we take an internal flight or drive to Biratnagar, located in the far southeast of the country. After that, we take a private bus to Basantapur, located in the Tehrathum region, where we camp overnight. On the day following the arrival at the base camp, we start our awe-inspiring trek to Dobhan through the Taplejung region in eastern Nepal. Our journey starts in Dobhan, from where we enjoy a relaxing day on a remote river beach or an optional trek to explore local villages. The Tamur is best explored between October and November and from February to May. In addition, you have the option of returning by private bus or internal flight to Kathmandu.

Tamur River Rafting Itinerary:

The trip is long and includes amazing trekking trails, with rafting as the primary priority.

We will start our trek into the heart of eastern Nepal by trekking for four days via Gupha Pokhari, stopping for lunch and rest while enjoying the views and culture of the local villages on the way. Trek from Milke Danda via Gupha Pokhari to Dovan to begin our rafting trip, where we are surrounded by stunning mountain views, including Mount Everest, Makalu, and Kanchenjunga. Porters will carry most of our gear, including kayaks and rafts. Camp is made.

We start our white water adventure at Dovan. Your expedition leader and raft guide will give you a detailed safety briefing, and then for the remainder of the day (outside of the lunch break), you're in a turquoise blue class 4 white water paradise.

 

There is no better day to experience Himalayan water than this one. It is large and continuous. We enter the Jungle Corridor, which is a narrow, jungle-clad canyon. Team building techniques are put into action, and when the guide calls out, "all forward," he really means it. Enjoy the rides all day and camp at the amazing God-house.

 

We will see more of the same, including the notorious GOD'S house rapid, then spend some relaxing time at the Seti Dovan.

 

There's still more action ahead! Don't give up! You are experiencing the best of western adventures on yet another day of a great adventure with breathtaking scenery and camping in Jamuna Village.

 

As this is a very remote area for white water rafting, the starting and ending points are not mentioned since we will be passing through villages and observing wildlife that is unique to this area the whole day.

 

As it is a remote area for white water rafting, no specific places are mentioned. We have managed the day as a rest day to enjoy the beach life or to trek to the local villages, where you will always find people who are so welcoming and enthusiastic.

 

From Rai Ghat to Bander Ghat, rafting takes approximately 6 hours. However, the experience does not end there. After Sap Su Khola, there is a rapid with the greatest drop, and the rapid is filled with 'holes,' 'eddies,' and churning 'stopper waves' that demand teamwork and hard paddling.

 

Our rafting excursion for the day runs from Bander Ghat to Bonjur Ghat for approximately 6 hours. We take to the rapids again, active all morning and eager for the lunch break. After emerging from the Mardheku gorge, the river is less agitated after being enclosed between steep cliffs and gorges.

The 16th day of the tour takes us from Bonjur Ghat to Barachhatra. The rafting is approximately six hours in water mixed with fun-filled rapids along with calm water floating.

 

The final day of the rafting takes us to Chatara, where we conclude the tiring yet thrilling couple of weeks. Afterward, we travel to Biratnagar in order to fly back to Kathmandu.

You can enjoy a day’s rafting or choose a trip that allows you to camp on the river and explore the surrounding culture and geography. Nepal is considered a paradise for river runners. Several grades of whitewater rafting trips are available to suit any interest or preference.

Among the best places to white water raft, Nepal has some of the world’s wildest and most spectacular rivers. Beautiful mountains, exhilarating white water rapids, warm water, and fascinating cultural experiences are what make Nepal one of the world’s top rafting destinations.

You can combine the Marshyangdi River rafting trip with a wildlife safari tour in nearby National Parks or the nearby trekking locations for those interested in a long day’s expedition. Please get in touch with us here at Pokhara Info if you have any questions about rafting in Nepal. We will provide you with the best options and packages. 

About Marshyangdi                                           

According to regional surveys, the Marshyangdi River is one of the most enraged rivers in Nepal and one of the biggest whitewater rivers in the world. This is one of the world’s best grade 4 rafting rivers with continuous, invigorating whitewater and breathtaking mountain vistas. The landscape is majestic, with every curve of the river revealing panoramic views of some of the world’s tallest mountains.

On this voyage, you will experience a vigorous escapade on one light hiking day and five intensive days of rafting. Newly opened to commercial rafting (many rapids are yet to be named), the Marshyangdi is one of the most precipitous rivers in Nepal, with a much more abundant quantity of rapids. The Annapurna region’s raging river, which winds its way off the north side of the Annapurna range, is sheer, professional, and one not to be underestimated! This remarkable whitewater adventure has some of the most thrilling rapids in the world and breathtaking views of virgin terrain. With multiple days of challenging, exciting, and never-ending crystal clear rapids, it is no wonder that this trip has been one of the most successful.

Overview of the Trip

Getting to Nagdi or Bhulbhule, the put-in spots for Marshyandi River Rafting is about a 5- or 6-hour drive west of Kathmandu by our private van. The ride from Nagdi will take around 2 hours with porters carrying all the rafting gear, etc. Riding from Pokhara can also be arranged. The 35 km of river activity takes two days to reach Bimal Nagar’s endpoint.

The Marshyangdi River is an excellent option for those desiring a more intense rafting experience and is more suitable for those who have had previous rafting experience. The half-day hike adds to the uniqueness of this tour. The Marshyandi River is an impressive combination of scenery and adventure. Rafting/kayaking on the Marshyandi River is regarded as a top whitewater adventure.

Marsyangdi Rafting Itinerary

Take advantage of your time to explore some of the city's greatest cultural and historical heritages. Enjoy your time to the fullest and prepare for your rafting by buying some of the essential equipment. Upon reaching Khudi, the equipment is cast, and we embark on a short hike. We then head to Bhulbhule, where a camp is set up that affords magnificent views of the Himalayas. We then stay the night in Bhulbhule.

On this day, you will begin by trekking to the put-in point, Ngadi. The sights and sounds on this hike are impressive. After an energizing lunch, the action will get underway. Marsyangdi is full of fun and spills, anyone who has paddled it will tell you. Several rapids kick off the expedition as soon as it starts. Rapids, Instant Karma, Twinkie, Adrenaline, etc., are indescribable thrills. The river will punish you with a whack down if any mistake is made. At Khudi, we set up our campsite on the river bank. We stay in Khudi overnight.

Each day the river gets bigger, so the ride is more jarring, and more maneuvering must be done. The area is surrounded by a jungle dense with greenery, and the boat lurches through gorges. After five hours of fun, getting off the rapids and ravines is followed by a stop for lunch at a sandy shore. Thereafter, rafters continue their adventures in the marshyangdi waters and camp before the middle marshyangdi hydro dam on one of the many artistic and plentiful sandy beaches of Middle Marshyangdi.

Firstly, we are moving to Paundi, which is behind the Dam. As a result of the dam being in the way, we end up with a crack in the river, and all supplies are transported to a different point. A pleasant excursion ends at Turture, although those wishing to continue further down have the option of an arbitrary fifth day.

The next put-in spot is at Paundi, from were another three hours of rafting begins against Class III rapids. This thrilling trip ends at Paundi. Turture to Bimalnagar is a delightful picturesque float without rapids today. The day brings an end to our rafting expedition.

It's time to say goodbye to Nepal. Enjoy your last moments of the trip in Kathmandu, whether it is breakfast in a café, a stroll through the city, or a shopping souvenir of Nepal.

The Paragliding Experience in Nepal

Nepal is a top travel destination for tourists and adventure lovers alike. But if you’ve been considering visiting Nepal for a while, but have no idea what to do here, then fret not. The gorgeous hills and mountains, along with luscious forests and mini pockets of adventure-oriented places, make a visit to various places of Nepal uniquely exciting.

You will not find a wider range of activities in Pokhara than anywhere else in Nepal. Therefore, if you want to experience most of the exciting activities in Nepal without traveling a lot, this is the place to be. Furthermore, the variety of activities in Pokhara valley, including rafting, hiking, cycling, boating, Paragliding from Sarangkot, chartered flights, sightseeing, and bungee jumping, might seem overwhelming even for regular travelers.

However, among all these exciting, if I had to choose a personal favorite, I’d definitely go with Paragliding from the famous Sarangkot hill. Despite Sarangkot’s monopoly on Paragliding activities, the experience of Paragliding in the sky of Pokhara via Sarangkot is rarely matched by any other activity. To add to that, despite trying most of the things available in Nepal, Paragliding has been my favorite for a long time.

The Excitement of Paragliding

It might make sense to wonder why you ought to consider partaking in Paragliding over bungee jumping or boating, among the countless options for passing your Time. But, the whole experience of getting ready for Paragliding and the thrill and rush after the event can’t be explained by words.

However, for conversation’s sake, here are a few reasons opting for Paragliding can be much better than the other alternatives. 

  • It is impossible to compare the thrill and adrenaline rush you experience during a takeoff from the ground.
  • As you’re flying through the sky, you’re greeted by fresh air hitting your face, giving you a sense of living life on the edge.
  • While it may seem dangerous, Paragliding is actually one of the safest sporting activities in the air, thanks to the reverse parachute, multiple safety belts, and a guide’s seat.
  • You’d probably feel more comfortable Paragliding than you are right now sitting in your chair.
  • Several benefits of Paragliding include increasing self-confidence and decreasing stress.
  • Taking part in Paragliding improves balance and strengthens the core, and you are never likely to get hurt by an equipment malfunction.

Apart from all these excellent benefits, Paragliding in Sarangkot offers much more entertainment to foreigners or people within Nepal.

The popularity of Paragliding in Nepal 

As far as Paragliding in Nepal is concerned, only Pokhara offers a variety of packages that can compete with world-class standards as compared to any other location. In this accord, you could say that Pokhara has monopoly control over Paragliding in Nepal. However, in spite of that, security and professionalism in the paragliding industry have been increasing yearly, making it a top destination for thrill-seekers at home and abroad.

More precisely, the beautiful hill of Sarangkot is the primary location in Pokhara, home to all paragliding activities in Nepal. The best part of Paragliding in Pokhara is flying through the skies like a bird while enjoying the breathtaking mountain scenery. Paragliding in Pokhara is unique because it combines adventure, mountains, and hawks with the valley’s scenic and natural beauty.

Preparing for Paragliding

Seeing the wonders of Pokhara and flying through the air may tempt you to try it out for yourself. If you do so, you will enjoy an activity that few other people experience. Nevertheless, oblivious people may find getting to Sarangkot and negotiating a good deal on a paragliding package difficult. Thus, here are some tips and guides to help you get the most out of your paragliding journey.

Getting There

You need to get to Pokhara wherever you are, whether in Nepal or abroad. Foreigners require a Nepali visa in order to enter Nepal. You can now use one of Nepal’s many public transportation options to reach Pokhara. If your city has a local airport, you may be able to book a flight to Pokhara for more comfort.

Once in Pokhara, we suggest you book a hotel room on Lakeside Street and enjoy the lively evening while strolling by the shore of Phewa Taal. To witness one of the gorgeous sunrises in Pokhara, you better reach Sarangkot hill before sunrise the next day. You can book a cab to get to the top of the hill.

This is a thrilling safari experience in the wild, where you can ride or walk through the jungles and experience wild animals up close.

You will be able to track tigers, and elephants, see the nature walk, see birds, have a full day of wild sightseeing, go on a Jeep safari, see dolphins, and go camping and hiking during the day tour. However, our managed Tour of the Bardia National Park will surely pique your interest in spending a thrilling vacation with nature.

About Bardia National Park

The Bardia National Park is located in Nepal’s southwest and is located in the Bardia district, which is only accessible by road. In order to reach Bardia via air, you must fly into Nepalgunj, which is one of the largest cities in Nepal and one of the most popular tourist destinations, and then take the road up to the National Park.

Bardia

Bardia National Park

A large national park in the southern Terai region of Nepal, Bardia National Park is one of the best places to see the Royal Bengal tiger. This Park has largely remained undeveloped and undisturbed for a long time. There are a total of 968 square kilometers (374 square miles) of land in the Park, with an average elevation of 415 meters (1,362 ft).

Trip Overview

Visiting Bardia National Park is a memorable experience for nature and wildlife enthusiasts. We will begin our trip by flying to Nepalgunj. When we reach the National Park after driving for two hours from Nepalgunj, our staff will welcome us to our resort and provide information about the trip. Lunch will be served there, and then we will visit Tharu village and the crocodile breeding center.

On the following day, we will enter the dense forest of Bardia National Park, where we will see many species of animals. Among these species are Gharials, Marsh muggers, crocodiles, one-horned rhinos, monkeys, pythons, wild elephants, black buck, wild boar, spotted deer, hog deer, and swamp deer.

The next day, we will visit the Karnali River to watch birds. The Park contains about 400 types of birds, including Bengal Floricans and Sarus Cranes, which are endangered. In addition, we will have an elephant safari through Bardia national park on our last day, and we will have a refreshing lunch before heading back to Kathmandu. We guarantee that you will be able to see the true beauty of Bardia on this Tour. Our goal is for every visitor to remember an unforgettable experience, and we strive to keep it going every time to maintain our quality services.

Itinerary for the Tour

On the second day of the Tour, our journey to see Royal Bengal tigers and one-horned rhinoceros begins with a hearty breakfast followed by a trek into the deep forest with our guide and porter. In Bardia National Park, you will find Gharials, Marsh muggers, crocodiles, monkeys, pythons, and wild elephants. Other animals include blackbucks, wild boars, spotted deer, hog deer, swamp deer, and, I believe, many other species.

There are towers inside the jungle where we can silently wait for the wild animals to cross our path by watching for their footprints, scats, scratches, and droppings. We can keep track of these wild animals by looking for their footprints, droppings, and their scratches on trees. The second day of our Bardia national park tour will be successful; after, we will eat lunch and walk deeper into the jungle in order to spot animals. We will return to our hotel in the evening and enjoy our dinner with colorful Tharu cultural dances.

The National Park is located approximately 30 kilometers from the Karnali River, so today, we will drive there. It is a day dedicated to watching beautiful, colorful birds of various species that visit waterholes to drink or that live in trees near the water. We will row a boat and go on a canoe ride to see even more birds.

If we are lucky, we will see tigers, rhinos quenching their thirst in the river, and even dolphins swimming in the river. There will also be animals such as gharials and muggers in the river. We can enjoy the view of the flowing Karnali river during the day.

 

On the last day of our journey, we will go on an elephant safari, which will be a very different experience than walking through the dense forest. We will be able to enjoy wildlife from a safer height while also being close enough to see the animals closely.

We will ride elephants so as not to disturb or scare the wild animals. After the safari, we will rest for lunch and continue to the Nepalgunj airport. We will fly from there to Kathmandu.

Suitable Time to Visit the Park

The weather is one of the most important things to consider when planning a trip. Bardia National Park is open throughout the year. However, the best time to visit is between February and June, when the dry season ends and the hot season begins. There are more chances to see tigers and rhinos near water holes during this time, as it is foggy in the winter. From November to January, animals hide in dense forests.

The Nar Phu Valley Trek

For national and international explorers and adventurers alike, Nar Phu Valley offers a chance to explore unspoiled valleys nestled between Annapurna and Manaslu, an area that is less traveled than its sister regions Annapurna and Manaslu. The Nar Phu Valley Trek, one of the world’s most scenic treks, offers Tibetan culture, high passes, Gorges, two picturesque medieval villages, and 7,000m peaks in an enclave of Tibetans.

Nar Phu provides an opportunity to encounter one of the world’s most unique wildernesses, passing through dramatic chortens, herds of blue sheep, and crossing some of the region’s highest pass crossings at Kang La and Mesokanto-La. In addition, this Trek offers the chance to experience the high, white, glistening mountains of the Annapurnas off the beaten path, which may be just what you are looking for to escape from the stress of your daily life.

About the region

As mentioned earlier, the Nar Phu trail explores remote villages, Tibetan-like people, forests, narrow canyons, Buddhist Gompas, and majestic mountains just off the Annapurna Circuit Route. In spite of its relatively recent opening in 2003, the Nar Phu Valley remains a relatively little-explored destination. A permit is actually required to enter this hidden valley.

A trip on the Nar Phu Trek is undoubtedly one of the best things you can do if you’re looking for a glimpse into a region full of raw beauty and Tibetan culture that harkens back to a time that Tibet itself has long since forgotten. 

Getting to the valley is difficult, but once you go through a bridge over the Marshyangdi River, you reach the beginning of the Nar Phu Valley, which is easy to overlook. However, a whole new world awaits once you have cleared the narrow, densely forested entrance. Furthermore, Farmers in this remote area still grow and harvest potatoes, barley, buckwheat, and vegetables and raise yaks and sheep as they have always done.

Necessary Permits and Accommodations

The sacred Nar Phu villages require a special permit for trekking. From September to November, the Nar Phu valley trekking permit is US$90; from December to August, the cost changes to US$75 per person.

There are well-managed hotels at the start of the Trek. Further along the Trail, hotels with well-appointed facilities are harder to find. Homestays and small teahouses are the main accommodations, along with the majority of these paths.

Preparing For the Nar Phu Valley Trek

During the Nar Phu Valley Trek, the highest point is at an altitude of 4,600 meters. For experienced hikers, this isn’t much elevation gain, but it represents a substantial change for newcomers. Overall, the Trek requires many long days of walking. Therefore, people with lung diseases or breathing problems should either stay away from such activities or take precautions prior to performing them since high altitudes are difficult to adjust to. Furthermore, high altitudes may cause people to experience altitude sickness.

Due to the cold conditions at high altitudes, we recommend you bring the following items with you on your Trek. Our group of friends brought these things on our first trip to Nar Phu Valley.

  • Warm clothes, including jackets, sweaters, and thermal wears
  • Water bottles and thermos
  • Tents if you plan to camp by the shore of Rara Lake
  • Backpack
  • Portable fire stoves
  • Snow Glasses and flashlight
  • Well-fitting gloves, socks, and shoes or boots
  • Trekking sticks
  • First aid kit
  • Moisturizers and lip guard
  • Energy bars

If you forget any of the items above, you can buy them easily in trek shops at the starting point of the Trek, though they are likely to cost more than usual.

Itinerary and the Trek itself

You can complete the Nar Phu Valley Trek in 7 to 12 days if you walk at a reasonable pace. If you are from Nepal, you will first need to get to Beshisahar. If you are not from Nepal, you will need to get to Kathmandu after obtaining a Nepali visa. From Kathmandu, we must travel to Beshisahar by public bus or book a private vehicle. From BesiShahar, we take a jeep ride to Koto to start the Trek. 

While trekking towards Junam, one hour beyond Meta, you can see the second semi-permanent settlement, where "khampas" from Tibet used to shelter. To the right of the kharka, you can see a huge glacier flowing jaggedly down to the high pastures above us. After reaching Kayang after six hours of Trek, we can rest there for the night.

After about five hours of trekking through picturesque canyonlands and gorges, we'll reach the Phu Monastery, known as the "leaning tower of Nepal" because of its tall, twisted monolith. And we spend the night in Phu village.

Since we spent quite a bit of time getting to Phu, we will stay an extra day in the area to explore the wide valley systems above us, meet the local Phu residents and do some sightseeing. On this day, we do not ascend much higher to adapt to the region's altitude.

From Phu gate, we descend to the river and follow our footsteps back to Junam kharka, a wonderful place for our campsite. From there, we continue on our Trek to Nar Phedi.

After walking for about four hours, we descend past several streams and suspension bridges to Mahendra Pul while passing towards Nar Village. In the village of Nar, we may even see some blue sheep on the surrounding hillsides as the light is spectacular and the skies are deep blue.

5240m above the valley floor lays the Kang La Pass, which offers stunning views of Gangapurna, Tilicho peak, Annapurna II, and the peaks surrounding Tilicho, as well as the airport at Thong. Passing via the Kang La Pass, we'll reach Ngawal to rest for the night.

While moving on, on the Trek from Ngawal, fields are visible on both sides of the path, while the village of Braga appears below a craggy mountain to the right. We then climb steeply for about an hour to reach Manang, a remarkably large village in this remote mountain region. We stay here for the night and enjoy the community's remarkable hospitality.

The trail from Manang ascends gently from Gunsang at 3960m village to Yak Kharka. The hike from Yak Kharka begins with a gradual climb up the ridge, followed by a descent to the Marsyangdi headwaters and a crossing via a wooden bridge. Then, on the right bank of the river, you follow a narrow path across an unstable cliff face, eventually descending to Thorung Phedi, where we spend the night.

On the tenth day, we continue the Trek by getting up early in the morning (before sunrise) to complete the Thorong La pass (5,416m) by noon, then trekking down to Muktinath, a symbol of religious acceptance for both Hindus and Buddhists.

On the final day, we descend down the Kali Gandaki gorge. After passing through Tibetan villages Jharkot and Khingar, you descend steeply to Kagbeni, which is an ancient village known for its Tibetan architecture. Finally, we reach Jomsom at the end of the day, where you can enjoy the mesmerizing view of Tilicho and Nilgiri peak.

Cost includes:

  • Arrival & Departure transport via private Car/Van/Bus.
  • Three meals per day throughout the Trip(Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner)
  • Accommodation during the trek.
  • Nights’ accommodation in Kathmandu with B/B.
  • Guide and a porter with Insurance, food, and accommodations.

  • Tips for Guide and Porters

After you’ve enjoyed the thrilling and joyful cycling experience, you can choose whether to visit other beautiful places in Nepal or head back home. No matter what you choose, we hope you have a fantastic time.

In the end, when we get back to Jomsom, we can follow our steps back home via Pokhara. First, do not forget to cherish all the beautiful moments you experienced during the Trek as you return home.

You should avoid bungee jumping during the monsoon season, regardless of whether the tour company offers it.

Bungee Jumping Locations in Nepal

Bhote Koshi

The first ever bungee jumping activity was in Nepal’s Bhote Koshi gorge. And now, it is one of the biggest and most famous spots for bungee jumping worldwide. It is located near the border of Tibet from Nepal and has a height of 160 meters above sea level.

In addition, it is one of the highest bungee jumping sites in Nepal and the world. Surrounding the Jump is the Bhote Koshi River, which will add to the entertainment.

In addition to giving you a heart-thumping experience, it also ensures your safety.

Aside from the jaw-dropping views, you can get very close to the crystal clear river below. You will experience bliss and feel as if you’re flying in heaven.

Reaching the Bhote Koshi Gorge

The Bungee Jumping location at the Bhote Koshi Gorge is located 12 kilometers from the Nepal-Tibet border. It can take around 3 to 4 hours to reach the exact location if you are traveling from Kathmandu. You will also travel via the Araniko highway. When you cross the famous friendship bridge, you will arrive at the suspension bridge where you will jump.

Pokhara

Nepal’s Pokhara is one of the most famous destinations for indulging in the most adventurous activities. From paragliding to zipping flying to trekking, Pokhara offers it all. Bungee jumping was added to the list in 2014 and quickly became Pokhara’s most popular adventure.

It is known as the Watertouching Jump since you get to touch a pond below the jumping point. It is an incredible experience you must have at least once in your lifetime.

In the Kaski district, an artificial pond is 20 meters deep and is located next to a steel cliff from which you will jump. The cliff is 80 meters high, and 30 to 40 people can participate in the activity in a single day.

The view of the surroundings is truly mesmerizing, adding to your adrenaline rush once you jump into the water below. Once you touch the water below, you will feel your heart pound like never before.

Whether you jump from the cliff with a friend or alone, you will have a mind-blowing experience. After jumping from the cliff, you will float for a while, then splash into the water below. Upon completion of the Jump and the trip, you will be picked up by a boat and returned back. Nonetheless, the experience will leave you breathless!

Reaching Hemja, Pokhara

It would take around 20 minutes to reach the jumping spot from the Pokhara lakeside. Once you arrive at the lakeside, take a cab, and you will be at the jumping spot in no time.

Jumping in Kushma, Parbat

There is arguably no better place in Nepal to experience bungee jumping than Kusma, located in the Parbat district, the second-highest and number one jumping spot in the world. If you want an exhilarating experience, you definitely can’t miss booking your Kusma bungee jump.

The Cliff Nepal operates and maintains the Bungee at Kusma, which has a height of 228 meters, and the Canyon Swing at Kushma, the world’s tallest swing. The Canyon Swing height is 748 feet or 228 meters. The Jump price for an individual can lie within the range of 6 to 10 thousand rupees. 

The official website offers you the option to book your Bungee Jump. But in most cases, Bungee Jump bookings are handled by local firms who already have the experience. Here at Pokhara Info, you don’t need to worry about the booking date.

Bungee Jumping Tips and Tricks

  • Do not hesitate to inquire about any questions you have. Your instructor is a trained professional who knows how to handle any emergency situation. Doing a double jump with two people strapped together is possible if you’re too scared for your first Jump but still want to participate.
  • Many tour companies offer a water dunk. Your head goes under the water for a few seconds just before you’re pulled out. As exciting as it sounds, it’s not recommended for beginners. In just a few seconds after being sunk in the water, You must pull your body up with a lot of calculations.
  • You’ll feel free, and your experience will be doubled when you scream and let the wind carry your fear away.
  • As soon as possible, get to the spot to avoid the line.
  • It’s important to feel well before jumping, as gravity plays a role. Don’t overeat or eat something substantial before you jump, and don’t empty your tummy either. That can make your stomach sick, throwing you up in the middle of the Jump.
  • In case you have asthma, a history of a leg injury, or high blood pressure, then you should consult your doctor before attempting bungee jumping. People suffering from spinal or neck injuries, heart problems, or pregnant women may be at risk.
  • There’s a comfort rule when doing extreme sports. A t-shirt and shorts/pants are great choices. A dress or skirt can make things awkward. It is not recommended to wear anything too tight or too loose during extreme sports.
  • Travelers who are pregnant are advised to avoid it.

Age Limit

Jumpers must be over 18 years old, but their parents or guardians must accompany anybody under 18 to sign the waiver.

Finally, Bungee Jumping prices may vary depending on time and situation. Therefore, we request that you contact us through email, phone number, or social media chat for detailed costs.
