Adventure 8 Days in Nepal
Skydiving, rafting and sightseeing in beautiful Nepal
Pokhara is extraordinarily alluring. Let’s make this beauty thrilling as well! Following the success of the World’s Highest Skydiving adventure – Everest Skydive, we now offer a standard form of skydiving in Pokhara, an amazing blend of elegance and excitement. Situated about 124 miles (200 kilometers) west of Kathmandu, Pokhara is blessed with natural adornments in abundance. Flanked by panoramic Himalayan peaks of Annapurna, Manaslu, Dhaulagiri and Machhapuchhre; and embedded by emerald lakes, Pokhara is a tourist hub frequented by thousands of visitors every year.
The city is also the starting point of the Annapurna Treks, the most popular trekking route in Nepal after Everest. Backed up by the expert Everest Skydive Crew, Pokhara Skydive will be held at PameDandadropzone, west of Phewa Lake where skydivers will leap from a height of 11000-13000 ft from AS 350 B3/B2 Helicopter. With the majestic peaks at your backdrop and the valley of Pokhara sprawling below, you take the leap from the aircraft, free falling for a few seconds, before your canopy opens and land gently on the ground. Your entire jump will be captured on film by the camera flyer.
Pokhara Skydive is a eight- day package, that includes 3-2 Solo/Tandem Jumps, accommodation, sightseeing tours and air and surface transfers (Kathmandu – Pokhara), plus rafting on the challenging rapids of Trishuli River. Entries are open for solo as well as tandem jump. If you want the thrill of the event but don’t want to experience solo skydiving or you have friends or family members joining you, we offer a ‘Holiday Package’ that includes one Tandem Jump and one Tandem Paragliding within the same Boogie Package. An optional half-an-hour Microlight Flight is also open for those who do not like skydive. If you want to be a part of this liberating experience, join us in this adventure of Serenity and Sensation!!
Arrive at Kathmandu, Transfer to Hotel

One of the most sacred Hindu temples of Nepal – Pashupatinath Temple is located on both banks of Bagmati River on the eastern outskirts of Kathmandu. The main temple of Pashupatinath is a building with a bunk roof and a golden spire. It is located on the Western bank of Bagmati and is considered a masterpiece of Hindu architecture. Pashupatinath is the most important temple dedicated to god Shiva. Every year this temple attracts hundreds of elderly followers of Hinduism.They arrive here to find shelter for the last several weeks of their lives, to meet death, be cremated on the banks of the river and travel their last journey with the waters of the sacred river Bagmati, which later meets the holy river Ganges
Boudhanath Stupa is the largest stupa in Nepal and the holiest Tibetan Buddhist temple outside Tibet. It is the center of Tibetan culture in Kathmandu and rich in Buddhist symbolism. The stupa is located in the town of Boudha, on the eastern outskirts of Kathmandu. Boudhanath was probably built in the 14th century after the Mughal invasions the temple has become one of the most important centers of Tibetan Buddhism. Today it remains an important place of pilgrimage and meditation for Tibetan Buddhists and local Nepalis, as well as a popular tourist site.
From above, BodnathStupa looks like a giant mandala, or diagram of the Buddhist cosmos. The five Buddhas also personify the five elements (earth, water, fire, air and ether), which are represented in the stupa’s architecture. There are other symbolic numbers here as well: the nine levels of BoudhanathStupa represent the mythical Mt. Meru, center of the cosmos; and the 13 rings from the base to the pinnacle symbolize the path to enlightenment, or “Bodhi” — hence the stupa’s name. The base of the stupa consists of three large platforms, decreasing in size. These platforms symbolize Earth, and here you can look out at the mountains while listening to the chants of the devout doing kora, walking around the stupa praying.
PATAN DURBAR SQUARE –Is one of the three Durbar Squares in the Kathmandu Valley, all of which are UNESCO World Heritage Sites. One of its attractions is the ancient royal palace where the Malla Kings of Lalitpur resided. Durbar Square is a marvel of Newa architecture. The Square floor is tiled with red bricks. There are many temples and idols in the area. The main temples are aligned opposite of the western face of the palace. The Square also holds old Newari residential houses. There are various other temples and structures in and around PatanDurbar Square built by the Newa People. Patan is one of the oldest known Buddhist cities. It is a center of both Hinduism and Buddhism with 136 bahals or courtyards and 55 major temples. Most of these structures are in the vicinity of the Durbar Square.
Drive to Pokhara via rafting in Trisuli
Drive to Kurintar, Rafting in Trishuli and Drive to Pokhara We take an early drive to Kurintar, which will last for about 4 hours. Under the guidance of a river guide, we venture into the Trishuli river and raft along the exciting rapids (rafting past Twin Rock, Ladies Delight and Scout Upset can be a mind-blowing experience). This river journey is found to be electrifying and one of the best ways to explore Nepal. During this meticulously organized river trip, we journey through some of the unexplored landscapes, cultural heritages and bio-diversity of Nepal. After the day’s adventure, we drive to Pokhara.
Nepal is home to eight out of the fourteen highest peaks in the world with cultures ranging colorful and intricate Hindus religion to the austerity of the Buddhist monasteries. From the breathtaking heights of the Himalayas the rivers crash down through the foothills, fed by monsoon rains and melting snow, on their way to the Great Plains of the Ganges.
Rafting and white water rafting are recreational outdoor activities which use an inflatable raft to navigate a river or other body of water. This is often done on white water or different degrees of rough water, and generally represents a new and challenging environment for participants. Dealing with risk and the need for teamwork is often a part of the experience.
