A zipline in Nepal? It’s the country’s very first high wire escapade. The longest in the world? It used to be, but it has since been overtaken by the new Jebel Jais Flight in Ras Al Khaimah in the UAE as of February 2018.Still, not content with pushing myself to breaking point by climbing up mountainous terrain during my Everest Base Camp trek, I decided that it was time to try an exhilarating way of travelling down through the new patch of Himalaya landscape I had found myself in. All via Zipflyer Nepal, which dubs itself as, “the world’s most extreme zipline?”

Zipflyer Nepal is, in fact, one of the world’s longest, fastest and steepest ziplines. It’s over 1.8km long, with a 600-metre vertical drop and which can travel at speeds up to 100 miles per hour. It’s one of the best and most popular attractions to spring up in the adventure sports haven of Pokhara.
