Canyoning is an amazing full body and mind experience that enables you to explore some of the last forbidden places in the Himalayas.
Canyoning is the sport of traveling down or in canyons using different techniques that generally include hiking, abseiling, jumping, climbing, swimming, and sliding. Canyoning is a sport that has a fantastic fan base that is growing all around the world. Around the world many people do canyoning in mountain canyons with moving water. Canyoning is frequently done in remote and rugged settings and often requires navigational, route-finding and other wilderness travel skills. Canyons that are ideal for canyoning are often cut into the bedrock stone, forming narrow gorges with numerous drops, beautifully sculpted walls, and sometimes spectacular waterfalls. Most canyons are cut into limestone, sandstone, granite or basalt, though other rock types are found. Canyons can be very easy or extremely difficult, though emphasis in the sport is usually on aesthetics and fun rather than pure difficulty. A wide variety of canyoning routes are found throughout the world and canyoning is enjoyed by people of all ages and skill levels. In our canyoning trip we offer the canyoning in the canyon of Jalbire which is travelling 100km from the capital city along Araniko Highway driving within 3-4 hours’ drive. This day trip offers spectacular views of the hills and villages and the wild life too.
