CANYONING IN NEPAL

The best DAY TRIP in Nepal. The sport of abseiling down waterfalls! Awesome!

Canyoning in Nepal is one adventure sport that gets you off the beaten track and cannot be missed by the adrenaline seeker and water sports enthusiast.

Canyoning is the sport of abseiling (repelling) down waterfalls. Whilst Canyoning with us in Nepal, you will journey though narrow passages of rock which have been contoured by ages of rushing water from the Himalayan snow melts and heavy monsoon rains. You will be traveling down canyons using a variety of techniques including walking, scrambling, climbing, cliff jumping, abseiling and swimming. Now does that sound like fun?!

Jalberi Canyon

The best canyoning spot in Nepal! Our canyoning site is in a small village called Jalberi, offering great day trips from Kathmandu, Chitwan or Pokhara or a great addition to your rafting or kayaking trip on the Trisuli. This is most definitely the best canyon site on offer in Nepal. You do not need any previous experience to join as we can teach you everything you need to know and have all the equipment and expertise to keep you safe and show you a great time with incredible scenery to boot. You will just need a good attitude and sense of adventure!

Trips depart from Kathmandu at 6.30am nearly all year round (arrangements can be made from Pokhara or Chitwan on request and we take a short break during the monsoon months when the water is too high).

Once we get there we will change at a small house at the bottom of the hill. There will be time for a quick cup of tea before a 20 minute hike to the top where you will be greeted with a 100meter waterfall. In our opinion, one of the most beautiful places in Nepal. Whilst your guides get all the equipment ready, you'll have time for a photo opportunity under the epic waterfall or a quick dip in  some of the natural pools.  You will then be given a harness, life jacket and helmet and after a comprehensive safety briefing we'll start teaching you how to climb and abseil and we are ready to go...

The trip starts with a jump into the canyon, it will get your heart beating right from the very beginning!

The largest waterfall we run is around 26 meters. Sometimes we slide and sometimes we jump directly into the clear pools below. After around 3 1/2 hours of adrenaline fueled fun we'll stop for a picnic lunch in the canyon before the drive back to Kathmandu, Chitwan or Pokhara or if you prefer, come and spend a night at our Trisuli River Camp, Gurung Valley. A trip not to be missed!!!
