Things to do
Hot air ballooning is very popular with tourists for it offers the most spectacular bird's-eye view of the Kathmandu valley and the Himalayan ranges towering in the background. On a clear day it's a superb way to view the Himalayan (from over 6000m up), and the view of the valley is equally breath-taking.
You do not necessarily have to trek or climb mountains just to enjoy panoramic view of world's highest peak. Instead you can board on to a mountain flight to get a bird’s eye view of the towering mountains. Mountain flights offer the closest possible aerial views of Mt. Everest, Kanchenjunga and the Tibetan Plateau.
Paragliding in Nepal can be a truly wonderful and fulfilling experience for the adventure seeking. A trip will take you over some of the best scenery on earth, as you share airspace with Himalayan griffins vultures, eagles, kites and float over villages, monasteries, and jungle, with a fantastic view of the majestic Himalayas.
The ultimate thrill of a bungy jump can now be experienced in Nepal at one of the best sites that this sport has to offer in the world. The site is located at a distance of a 3 hour drive from Kathmandu and 100km northeast within 12 km of the Tibet border. Nepal's first bungy jumping site is situated 160m over Bhote Koshi River.
Ultralight aircraft take off from Pokhara and offer spectacular views of the lakes, mountains and Pokhara valley. This is an ideal way to see life from a new perspective. The choice of Pokhara Valley for ultra-light aircraft is appropriate chiefly because of the proximity of the mountains, and the scenic lakes. For those who wished they could fly like birds. It might be lonely at the top, but the spectacular view from up high certainly makes it all worth it. Flights are from the Pokhara airport beginning September through June. The flights take place from sunrise to 11 a.m. and rom 3 p.m. to sunset every day during these months.
A relatively new and exclusive sport, Para Hawking in increasingly getting popular. First introduced by British falconer Scott Mason, can now be performed in Pokhara. The Para Hawking package is a complete treat for thrill seekers and bird lovers. Para hawing is basically an adventure sport, where birds of prey are trained to guide Para gliders to the best thermal currents. During the sessions, you will learn about falconry and paragliding.
With less than one percent of the world's land Nepal contains 10% of its birds, or 801 species. Some of the exotic birds found here are: plumbeous redstart, satyr tragopan, Himalayan tree pie, hoary barwing, and coal tit. For bird watchers we recommend you to visit the Royal Botanic Gardens, Chitwan National Park, Kosi Tappu and Wildlife Reserve.
Honey hunters can set out on a perfect holiday package collaborating honey hunting activity with a scoop of trekking at Shangri – La valley. Honey Hunting has been a traditional activity for the indigenous Gurung and Magar community, which has been practiced from generations to generations especially in the areas of Bhujung and Pasgaon. Aside from these places, other hotspots for honey hunting are Annapurna region, Dhading, Jharlang across Ganesh Himal, Arun vallaey in Makalu. You will be fascinated by the techniques used by the tribesmen to collect the honey. Honey hunters climb uphill to cliffs at staggering altitude of 3500m, onlookers never cease to be amazed by watching how the hunters with their minimal traditional hunting gear gather honey. Huge honeycombs are built by Apis Laboriosa, the world's largest honey, and honeys are usually collected twice a year. A documentary shows a hunter ascending a 200 foot rope, balancing a basket and a long pole to chisel away up to 2 million bees from their combs.
The best way to explore the Kathmandu Valley is on a mountain bike. Nepal's diverse terrain is a mountain biker's dream adventure comes true. Mountain biking offers an environmentally sound way of exploring this magnificent country, its landscape and living heritage. There are plenty of dirty roads and trails in Nepal to meet every mountain biker's wildest fantasy.

You could even do the entire length of Nepal across the plains. Mountain bikes are readily available for rental or buying.

I went for a walk down to the centre of Kathmandu during my first day. I felt as if I was going through a trip back in time, a pure fantasy. I did not judge, believe, or disbelieve. I just looked at what at seemed like an exhibition a street panorama of medieval living. The […]
