About Our Nepal Canyon, Cave, and Climb Adventure
Get all the awesome activities of our Caving, Climbing, and Canyoning in this short tour to Bandipur/Bimal Nagar near Pokhara.
Jalbire canyon is one of Nepal’s most amazing natural wonders, and makes for spectacular photos when viewed from inside the canyon – it’s a tropical jungle paradise that you can see from nowhere else. Waterfall abseils, natural water-rock sliding, and a 20-meter splash pool jump are not to be missed for the traveling adrenaline junkie!
Then, camp overnight by the aqua-blue waters of the Marsyandi River. The next day, we hike up to Siddha Cave for a morning abseil into Nepal’s largest cavern, complete with hanging bats, stalactites, and stalagmites. On clear days, you have an awesome view of the Annapurna Himalaya and the river and villages below. After lunch, we have time for rock climbing or a hike around the local villages to see how they make a local brew called “chang,” or watch the work of the village potters or weavers.
The next morning, we rise early to climb at Bimal Nagar rock face; this is Nepal’s highest pitch and a good challenge for climbers of all levels. You also have time to explore the village of Bimal Nagar where you find friendly locals happy to see you visiting their village. After lunch, you are on your way to Pokhara or Kathmandu — your choice!
We camp at a small resort with showers, toilets, and restaurant. This is a great place to have a break with all amenities, yet still in nature. Camping here supports local Nepali small businesses – sustainable tourism friendly.
