Best Adventurous Things to do in Nepal in New Year 2020
Nepal is famous for its adventure. Most tourists visit to try various adventure sports. Some of them are listed below:
✅ Bungee Jump
✅ River Rafting
✅ Jungle Safari
✅ Zip Flyer
1. Rafting and Kayaking
Nepal is one of the best places in the world for river rafting. Many of the best rivers offer excellent opportunities for rafting, canoeing and immersing oneself in the spectacular landscape. The rivers Bhote Koshi, Sunkoshi, Trisuli, Karnali, Marshyangdi, Seti and many others are carrying the breath of rafting. This is highly recommended. No, you don’t have to be a swimmer to try it out. Experienced rafting guides will guide you all. Rent a boat or kayak from the shores of Lake Phewa and Begnas in Pokhara and enjoy paddling amidst the tranquility of nature.
2. Bungy Jumping
Bhote Koshi, one of the wildest rivers in Nepal, rises under the steel suspension bridge which was specially designed for bungee jumping. If you want to experience bungee jumping on the 160-meter deep gorge created by Bhote Koshi near the border with China, contact The Last Resort, the only place where bungee Jump is available.
3. Paragliding and Parahawking
You can enjoy stunning views of Fewa Taal and the Himalayan Peaks while paragliding and parahawking from Sarangkot in Pokhara. You can enjoy stunning views of the southern part of Kathmandu Valley by paragliding in Kathmandu.
Pokhara, as well as skydiving, are offered to professional divers from Mt. Everest. It has the most sky diving from Mt. Everest. Tandem skydiving starts at 29,500 feet and offers the best view of Mount Everest. Your jump is taken care of by some of the most experienced skydivers so that you can enjoy the ride and get the most from this spectacular skydive. Pokhara also has skydiving free fall from about 14000 feet. Everest Skydive is actually one that I personally ask to try before I die.
5. Mountain Biking
Mountain biking here is a means to enjoy your stay. There are also many routes in Kathmandu, Pokhara and other nearby routes. It offers a challenging and enjoyable natural ride from the lowland tropical plains, mid-hills, mountainous areas and lush green valleys to the arctic climate of the high alpine region. The only way to realize these hidden treasures and its warm-smiling people is on a mountain bike. Mountain bikes are available for rent or for long hours in rental shops around the city.
6. Hot Air Ballooning
Hot air ballooning is very popular for tourists as it passes through the Himalayan ranges in the backdrop of the most spectacular bird view of the Kathmandu Valley. It is a great way to see the Himalayas (over 6000 meters) on a clear day, and the view of the valley is equally breathtaking.
7. Jungle Safari
Go on a jungle safari (a jeep or better yet on the great Asian elephant) and see a horned rhinoceros up close, and also see the river crocodile and sometimes the Royal Bengal tiger. Apart from rhinos, wild boar, samburs, spotted deer, sloth bear, four-horned antelope are also commonly seen.
This country is also a paradise for bird lovers, with countless varieties of birds in Chitwan National Park and Bardia National Park. Chitwan National Park is famous for its elephant breeding center, gharial breeding center and does not forget to enjoy elephant bathing in the Rapti River.
8. Zip Fly
Pokhara has the world’s longest ZIP flyer. It not only provides thrills but reflects the beauty of our country. Zip-flyers have been constructed to connect Sarankot and Hemja VDC.
Nepal is a diverse country. Despite its small size, it has about 103 ethnic groups, 115 languages , and about 5 religions. The multifaceted cultural heritage itself embraces the cultural diversities of various ethnic tribes and social groups in the form of music and dance, arts and crafts, languages and literature, festivals and celebrations and foods and drinks.
Nepal is a country of festivals and holidays. Attend at least one of the many festivals that occur around the year. I have seen travelers enjoying the festival of colors “Holi”, flying kites during Dashain, enjoying Indrajatra, Ghodejatra, Gaijatra and the various batches that followed. Also one can enjoy cultural dances like Kauda, Lakhe dances, etc.
Nepal, especially Kathmandu, Pokhara is a walkable city, so you will enjoy walking in a chaotic environment and be positively overwhelmed by it. Try it, you will love it, especially in the early morning and early evening.
Nepal is the home of the gods where culture is frozen in time and place. The only country where you will find millions of Gods, “Kumari” is the only living goddess of the planet. It is the biggest destination for religious tourists throughout the year for both Hindus and Buddhists. Travelers come only to follow ancient traditions to worship stupas like Pashupatinath, Budhanilkanth and Swayambhunath and Boudhanath. Some of them also visit Lumbini, the birthplace of Gautam Buddha. Buddhists mainly visit the stupas and the Lumbini. People are major centers for people during festivals like Shivaratri and Buddha Purnima. There are many ancient pilgrimage sites. Each temple is associated with a legend or belief that glorifies the miraculous powers of its deity. It is also the gateway to Kailash Mansarovar, the mythical abode of Lord Shiva. Devotees from different parts of Nepal and India visit the temples during special festivals.
Casino gambling is popular with tourists, mainly from India. For those who are thrilled to visit casinos, Nepal is the perfect place as almost all the major 5-star hotels in Kathmandu Valley and Pokhara have lots of casinos.
Nepal is an exotic shopping paradise! Most of the handicrafts are not commonly found in other parts of the world. Buy gems, pashminas (garments made from special mountain goat wool), thankas (budding paintings), handicrafts and other handicraft sculptures and souvenirs. Other popular items include traditional Thangka paintings (Buddhist paintings, Buddhist prayer wheels, Buddhist singing bowls, and traditional silver) ornaments of the people of the mountains. Silver jewelry and semiprecious stones are available in Kathmandu at good prices. Cashmere / Pashmina shawls (high-quality handmade shawls made from the wool of Himalayan goats) and famous khukuri knives of Gorkha soldiers are other popular souvenirs. You can buy a fantastic collection of Rudraksha Malas and Shaligram in Kathmandu.
Hand-made, traditional rice paper items are the other choice. Kathmandu is a great place to buy both Tibetan and Kashmiri (Persian type) carpets. We produce a great variety of Himalayan tea for tea lovers to enjoy back home. Spices (for cooking) and Nepali and Tibetan incense can be other souvenirs that you may like to buy.
Food is another reason to visit Nepal at least once. Its dishes have a rich South-Asian taste. Other edibles that make it attractive to food lovers are lentils, pickles, organic meat, tomato sauce and more. Another dish that has become the identity of Nepal is dhal bhat which is not only healthy food but also very cheap. Don’t ever go back without tasting its excellent delicacies. In particular, Nepali dishes (rice, lentils, and curries), Newari (chatamari) and Nepali-Tibetan dishes (Momo, Thukpa) are extremely popular with locals and travelers.
Ultra-light Aircraft and Mountain Flight
Ultralight Aircraft takeoff from Pokhara and offer spectacular views of lakes, mountains, and villages. It is an ideal way to see life from a new perspective. The choice of Pokhara Valley for ultra-light aircraft is mainly suitable due to the proximity of mountains and natural lakes. Flights are from Pokhara Airport starting in September to June. Flights are from sunrise at 11 am and 3 pm. Sunset every day during these months.
Only the awe-stricken silence can be easy to match the spectacular experience of going on a mountain flight to face the highest mountains on Earth. Mountain flights offer the closest possible aerial view of Mt. Everest, Kanchenjunga and Tibetan Plateau taking a beautiful flight with no footwork. Most domestic airlines arrange flights in light planes, and flights are also available from Pokhara and other places in the capital, flying over the spectacular Annapurna range. Mountain flights appeal to all classes of travelers and have become a popular tourist attraction of Nepal. The best time for a mountain flight is from October to June.
Nepal is a paradise for bird lovers with 646 species of birds (about 8% of the total of the world), and about 500 hundred of those species are found in the Kathmandu Valley alone. The most popular bird watchers in Kathmandu are Phulchoki, Godavari, Nagarjun, Taudaha and so on. Visit the Koshi Tappu Wildlife Sanctuary at Rara National Park in Mugu and see the birds at Rara Lake. Both these places are resting places for migratory birds during the winter (December / January) in the Northern Hemisphere.
Yoga and Meditation
Yoga and meditation are unique opportunities for those interested in the growth of both body and mind. Yoga and meditation help strengthen and open the mind for greater relaxation and awareness to all in the beautiful natural environment provided by Himalaya. Himalaya has played a big role in self-interviews hence Nepal is the best destination for yoga and meditation. There are many yoga centers such as Kopan monastery, Vipassana Yoga center, Osho Tapoban, Himalaya International Yoga Academy – Banasthali, etc, Pokhara, Lumbini, Tyangboche, Namobudhha, and many others.
Many travelers spend their time volunteering in monasteries, orphanages, schools, health posts and hospitals, and communities. Volunteer with the mentioned activities voluntarily and you will definitely find the great value of your time in Nepal.
Home Stay in Nepal is an outstanding activity on top of sharing lifestyle, culture and tradition, art and entertainment and sharing and loving true humanity. Homestay is one of the most popular types of bed and breakfast with the typical Nepalese family. The traditional hospitality of the Nepalese nation is the best way to observe many cultural activities as well as to experience the joys of outdoor life in a fun and adventurous way.
Nepal is the best travel destination for people of all ages, people of all types and people of different interests as it has everything to offer religious travel for water sports. Not very expensive travel, a normal foreigner can easily travel and gather a lot of material, familiar in a short time.
