Ten-Second Takeaway

Bungee jumping, white water rafting, chilling in a hammock with a mountains for company, this really is our first and last resort!

Adventure Junkie

Imagine standing off a 160m high bridge, across a beautiful gorge, over one of the wildest rivers in the world. Now jump! And then you’ll have probably felt the thrill of a lifetime. So, if you’re into jumping off bridges {strings attached}, climbing rocks or navigating mighty rivers, then this must be on your bucket list. Located about three hours from the capital city of Kathmandu in Bhote Kosi, this place really is your last resort in Nepal. No really, because beyond it lies the mighty China.

Camp Out

Perched on a mountain face with the gushing Bhote Kosi river flowing below, the resort is beautifully crafted from stone, wood and slate, giving it a very rustic look. Tented room {for two or even four} dot the entire space, and you’ll get in some good exercise as it’s a terraced format. We love that it adds some privacy though. Shower and washroom are communal to add to the camping feel. Or just lurk in a hammock all day, reading a book. Food is homely be it Nepali or European {it’s a place foreign tourists flock to for the adventure}, and the Karma Bar – open all day, turns into a lively space at night with guests chattering and impromptu jam sessions being the order of the night.

Just For Thrills

Action and adventure reign supreme here. Apart from bungee and swing {the tamer version where you jump feet first}, there’s also canyoning which means you’ll follow the course of the river in the canyon sometimes swimming, sometimes walking and sometimes rock climbing. Water babies can opt for kayaking or white water rafting, which is intense at any given time, but will leave you pretty high on adrenalin. Then maybe on that high, you’ll even bungee! Of course it’s more amusing to watch the video they take {and you can buy for an extra charge} of your high jinx. Not so graceful as you hope most times, we warn!

If you’re still intimidated, maybe just wallow in the stone swimming pool, get a massage or heat things up in the sauna. But really, those are all a distant second when here. So drink a shot {or two} of tequila or whatever you need to calm the nerves, and give these adventure sports a go. You won’t regret it.


While there are day strips, make sure you stay at least a night because you’ll soak in the buzz here, and who knows, you’ll want to be climbing Mt Everest next, forget bungee jumping!
