What to Expect

Day 1: Canyoning

You’ll meet your host early this morning to begin your bus ride to Jalbire Canyon. Travelling through the heart of Nepal’s Trisuli River valley, you’ll enjoy the scenery of lush tropical villages and the occasional view of the Himalayas.

You’ll arrive at the canyon in time for lunch, so stop and have a bite to eat to fuel the afternoon ahead – you’ll need it. It’s a 40-minute hike to the top of the canyon, with the reward of a giant 30m-high waterfall at the top which makes for some awesome photos.

After a brief training session, your canyoning adventure in the unrivalled beauty of this natural waterpark begins; abseil through waterfalls, lose your stomach on rock slides, and push yourself at some fantastic cliff jumping spots.

As your stamina begins to fade with the daylight, it’s time to return to the bus and head to Bimal Nagar and the Bamboo Lodge, where you’ll spend the night in a cosy bamboo hut.

Day 2: Caving

Today you will hike to Siddha Cave (Siddha Gufa) for a morning abseil into Nepal’s largest cave. On a clear day, you’ll have an awesome view of the Annapurna Himalya so have your camera to hand.

As you enter the cathedral-like interior of the cave, you’ll be surrounded by stalactites and stalagmites, and hundreds of bats whistling overhead.

After a bit of lunch, you’ll have time for rock climbing or a muddy hike down to the villages to meet the residents and watch local potters and weavers at work.

At the end of another packed day, you’ll return to your hut for food, laughs and relaxation.

4 hours abseiling and caving, 4 hours rock climbing

Day 3: Climbing

You’ll rise early this morning to climb one of the most spectacular rock walls in Nepal, Bimal Nagar.

As you challenge yourself on some of the multi-pitch and single-pitch climbing routes Bimal Nagar has to offer, you’ll enjoy the view of Mt. Manaslu and the sound of the beautiful Marshyandi River flowing in the distance.

When your feet are firmly back on the ground, you’ll explore the village and meet the friendly locals who are always pleased to see new visiting faces. Stop for a spot of lunch before you are on your way to Pokhara or Kathmadu — your choice!

You’ll stop at a small camp resort with all the facilities you need after a long day climbing, including a restaurant. This is a great place to have a break; reunited with amenities yet still in the heart of the natural surroundings you’ve become accustomed to. Camping here supports local Nepali small businesses, which is what makes this place really special.

4 hours climbing

Accommodation

Both nights you will stay in hut-style rooms at an eco-camp called Bamboo Lodge.

The hut walls are woven with local bamboo. The rooms are basic but comfortable and give you all you need for your stay.
