Adventure in Himalaya: extreme activities for adventure lovers
Adventure lovers can be engaged here in rafting, ecotourism, hiking in the jungle, jeep safaris and motorcycles, horse and bike riding, mountaineering and rock climbing. Those who do not like these kinds of entertainment can go on a pilgrimage tour, since Himalaya is the crossroads of the three major Asian cultures: Hinduism, Buddhism and Islam.
The most in-demand adventure activities
Rafting in the Himalayas is a real paradise for those who like active recreation. This is an exciting journey, during which you will see the most beautiful mountain landscapes, untouched nature and enjoy the purest air of the Himalayas.
Nepal is a small state in the Himalayas, the land of the highest mountains and a perfect place for rafting. Rafting in Nepal will provide you with a huge selection of routes, picturesque mountain landscapes, warm rivers and exotic culture.
Here you can find rafting of any level of complexity, even for beginners. Everybody is instructed. What is more, an experienced instructor sails on a raft with tourists. The duration of such tour is different: from a couple of hours to several weeks. The main places where you can go rafting in Nepal are: the Marsyangdi for lovers of extreme rafting (4 days), Trishuli River for beginners (1-3 days) and the Karnali River (10 days). Karnali River is the longest and deepest river in Nepal. If you choose this river, you will have the opportunity to visit the Bardia National Park.
Another preferred activity is trekking. The most popular route is Everest. Everest (Jomolungma) is the highest peak in the world. Despite the fact that this is the highest mountain, Everest is not the most difficult trek to climb.
Jomolungma is the cherished dream of every mountaineer. But it is worth mentioning that climbing is an activity for people, who have an excellent physical shape. If you are still afraid to do it, here is an opportunity to make an exciting hiking tour around the Everest and Khumbu valley.
Everest Base Camp, which is at an altitude of 5364 meters, is the most popular place among travelers, who conquer the mountain. A trip to the base camp of Everest leads you through the beautiful scenic valleys that amaze with the unique diversity of flora and fauna.
Trekking around Annapurna is also in demand. The routes in the area of the Annapurna Conservation Area are rightly considered to be one of the most beautiful in Nepal. Stunning views, mountain rivers and waterfalls, bamboo thicket and flowering rhododendrons will not leave anyone indifferent.
