The experience is not for the faint-hearted, but the breathtaking views of the river gorge and the sheer thrill of free-falling make it a must-try activity. Nepal’s bungy jump is one of the highest in the world and promises an unforgettable rush.

          1. Paragliding: Soar like a Bird

        Pokhara, often called the adventure capital of Nepal, offers spectacular opportunities for paragliding. Glide through the skies over the stunning Phewa Lake and get a bird’s-eye view of the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri mountain ranges. Tandem paragliding flights are available for those without prior experience, making it accessible to all adventure enthusiasts.

            1. Rock Climbing: Scale the Peaks

Climbing in Nepal not only challenges your physical abilities but also rewards you with breathtaking views.

              1. Mountain Biking: Explore the Trails

            Explore Nepal’s picturesque landscapes and remote villages on two wheels. Mountain biking has gained popularity as a thrilling way to discover the country. The Kathmandu Valley, with its ancient temples and narrow alleyways, offers excellent opportunities for urban biking. For a more rugged adventure, ride through the Annapurna Circuit or along the Mustang trails, where you’ll encounter diverse terrains and cultures.

                1. Zip Lining: Zoom Over the Gorges

              Nepal’s zip lines are some of the longest and most scenic in the world. Experience the thrill of soaring over lush valleys and dense forests at high speeds. The zip lines in places like Pokhara and Sarangkot provide stunning views of the Annapurna and Machapuchare mountain ranges. It’s an adventure that combines the excitement of speed with the beauty of nature.

              Nepal is a land of adventure where the Himalayas provide the backdrop for some of the most heart-pounding activities on the planet.

              Vrijwilligerswerk Nepal

              Ben je op zoek om vrijwilligerswerk te ervaren in Nepal? Wil je je passie delen om de wereld te verbeteren terwijl je een onvergetelijke ervaring krijgt van de Nepalese cultuur? Heb je nagedacht over het deelnemen aan een vrijwilligerswerk programma in Nepal wat je persoonlijke groei bevorderd terwijl je avontuurt door het bergenlandschap en leert over Nepals serene en vredige cultuur?

              Deelnemen aan een vrijwilligerswerk programma in Nepal is een fantastische mogelijkheid omdat je veel meer krijgt dan alleen vrijwilligerswerk ervaring. De thuisbasis van machtige Himalaya gebergte, Nepal bied een fantastische reeks van culturele tradities, geografische wonderen en een schijnbaar oneindig aantal oude tempels en kloosters. Wanneer je hier vrijwilligerswerk doet word je verwelkomt in een sterk verbonden gemeenschap om je een uiterst authentieke en unieke ervaring te geven die de meeste toeristen nooit zullen ervaren.

              De meerderheid van de Nepalese bevolking leeft in armoede. Vanwege natuurrampen, bergachtig terrein en de afgelegen ligging van vele dropen zijn goede voorzieningen niet altijd goed beschikbaar. Er is ook een zekere mate van corruptie in de overheid waardoor de Nepalese bevolking de armoede moeilijk kan ontsnappen. Er is veel hulp nodig van vrijwilligers zoals jij om deze kansarme gemeenschappen te helpen met hun werk aan een betere toekomst.
