Itinerary

Day 1 - Arrival in Kathmandu
We will greet you upon your arrival in Kathmandu at the airport, assisting you to your hotel and picking up the cost of the airport transfer. Depending on what time you arrive you may have some time to explore the city before we all meet as a group at the hotel in the evening. We'll get to know each other and meet our guide, as well as be given a short briefing on the trip ahead. After this the rest of the night is yours to explore or relax.

Day 2: Travel to The Last Resort: Activities Day 1 (Abseiling/Bungee/Canyon Swing)

After an early breakfast at the hotel we will be taken by car out of the city. You will quickly leave the urban world behind and drive deep into the foothills of the Himalaya. After a 3-hour journey you will arrive at a small village. You are, in fact, only a few kilometres from Tibet, at a place called the Last Resort. You will stay here for 2 days. It’s time to go in, grab a drink and some food. After lunch you’ll be led by your canyoning leader to gear up with your wetsuit and harness, ready to work your way down a stream and waterfalls, some as long as 20 meters. What better way to start the day then by being bathed with the fresh and crisp Himalayan water as you work your way down the waterfall! After returning to the resort to dry off and have lunch, we are escorted to the suspension bridge that links the resort to the rest of civilization yet for a very different reason; to JUMP or SWING OFF IT!! At this point, you’re trying to calm your nerves and keep your hands steady as you see the person in front of you disappear below the bridge! The choice is yours; Drop straight down in free fall, or swing out at 160km/h towards the canyon ahead! (100kg weight limit on Bungy Jump). After you’ve found your voice again, you can spend the rest of the day chilling out in the resort’s plunge pool, reading a book in a hammock or even exploring the area! You’ve deserved it!

Day 3: Activities Day 2 (White Water Rafting)

Your final day in paradise! Another early start – and today you are going to be heading straight down the river you saw every day before now, in a boat. It’s white water rafting time on the spectacular Bhote Kosi River. The rapids come thick and fast and you’ll be in a battle against the raging river. After this incredible journey you’ll have lunch. You finish the day by heading back to Kathmandu. Back in the city you can go out for the night to explore your surroundings.

Day 4: In Kathmandu

Mountain Quests will have arranged an early morning city tour for you today. Kathmandu is home to 7 World Heritage Sites. We will guide you through the maze of streets, to see such wonders as Bouddha Stupa, Syambunath and Kopan Monastery. There is so much to see here you won’t get bored. Alternatively the day is yours to explore this wonderful medieval city for yourself.

Either way, in the evening we’ll get you to the airport and send you on your way back home. It’s been an absolute pleasure!
