Adventure Sports In Nepal
If you want to get away from the hustling and bustling of Kathmandu city and experience the bumpy ride across Himalayan hills, “The Last Resort” is a place to visit on your Nepal trip. It is place full of dare and fear, so if you want to get some adrenaline rush, experience gravity defying adventure, and to test the adventurer in you, read on.
The Last Resort is about three hours drive from Kathmandu and is located close to the Tibetan border in a place called Tatopani. The resort is beautiful and very accommodating. It lies on top of the Bhotekoshi river gorge where you can view the beautiful valleys terraced slopes, the flowing high current river, and greenery all around.
Not only the location and the scenery is perfect for relaxation, there are other things that you can do to make your experience more rewarding and meaningful. Have you ever thought of jumping from a 160m high bridge where all you can see below is a flowing river?
No kidding! Nepal has one of the worlds most breathtaking Bungee jump and the worlds highest canyon swing.
How to get to Tatopani?
There are a lot of day trips as well as stay in at the resort options and packages to choose from with the adventure sports. The drive from Kathmandu to Tatopani is not long (about three hours, 102 km) but taking an early morning transportation will save you some time.
If you only want to do one activity and experience the resort a day trip back and forth from Kathmadu can be done. If you choose to do couple of activities and experience the nature and serenity at Tatopani, then stay at last resort.
The drive is pretty interesting. One of the highlight of the trip will also be the experience of drive from one hill to another and then circular around the hill up and down to another hill. I loved the drive which I call “edge of the road drive” and at some points you will see truly breathtaking view of the array of valleys.
Once you get to the resort there are lots of of thrilling and fun activities to do. Prebooking the activity is always recommended to reserve your spot and plan your perfect trip.
