Overview

click here to enlarge map
Zip-Flyer Nepal is the world's most tallest, fastest and the longest zipline in the world located in Sarangkot- one of the most beautiful places in Pokhara of Nepal. It is not just another zipline; it is inclined at 56 degree, 1.8 km in length, 2000ft vertical drop and speeds of over 160kmph making it the most extreme ride in the world.
Imagine, You're standing on the platform overlooking the majestic Himalayas and a mind-boggling 2000 feet vertical drop. As you look down, the adrenaline begins to build up and your heart begins to beat faster. The countdown begins…5,4,3,2,1, and you're airborne. Gravity takes care of the ‘go' portion of the ride, a feeling of weightlessness sets in, the wind gushes against your face, as you plunge at speeds of over 160kmph. After a minute of pure adrenaline, and travelling a distance of almost 2km, the ride begins to slow down as you approach the landing. The advanced, magnetic braking system then brings you to a complete stop.
During the ride, you'll get to experience the breath-taking views of the Himalaya range and the raging Seti river. Zip-Flyer by Highground Adventures Nepal is truly an experience not to be missed.

SkyZip Safety Considerations:
Safety-First is our credo, and safety is much more than an afterthought in the development of the SkyZip ride; it is an inherent component of every part, every element, every system, and every procedure that was included in its design, development, manufacturing, installation, manuals, and owner/operator training.
While developing the SkyZip system, we were not content with just meeting the industry standards (Every part is precision engineered to equal or surpass the ANSI-B77 Tramway, ASTM and TUV SUD codes), we have collaborated in the design of the system with a leading engineering firm, and plans for every element, component and design element of the ride has been reviewed and stamped by a professional engineering firm.

•    Participants must be between 35 and 125 kgs (75 and 275 pounds) and be comfortable with heights. This ride is not recommended for individuals with back or neck problems, or those who are pregnant.
•    Videos and pictures of your ride will be available at the end of your ride! However, you would be required to book your helmet cam video when you purchase your ride. Shop at the HighGround Triangle Souvenir store starting in September 2011!
Duration: Approximately 2.5 hours

Your adventure begins when you board your shuttle for the ride to the top the mountain. Your guide will narrate as you pass through the village of Sarangkot and then up the mountainside. Once on top you will take a short walk to the Butterfly Pavilion, an architectural marvel with breath-taking views of the Himalayan range. While you sip coffee and wait for your turn we assure your wait will be exciting. At 5400 feet above sea level you will sit into a special harness seat and await your launch. Two guests launch at once, and it is a race to the bottom! 5,4,3, 2, 1 and you're off, accelerating to 100 mph as you pass above the dense forest below. If your eyes are still open you will see sweeping views of majestic Machhapuchhre, the Annapurna range and the raging Seti River. Your ride concludes with a break-activated landing on the HighGround Triangle in the village of Hyangja.

Miyamoto report on Annapurna Nepal Now, latest facts
Miyamoto report on Annapurna Nepal Now, latest facts Location: Annapurna | Type: Adventure, Nature Lovers | Tags:NepalNOW, Trek, annapurna, nepal, nepal now The Annapurna region, the most popular tourism destinations of the country, is located in the Himalayas in north-central Nepal. Following the powerful earthquakes of April and May 2015, the extent and severity of earthquake-related structural damage and geologic hazard were widely believed to be limited, but remained unknown. With funding from SAMARTH-NMDP and on behalf of the government of Nepal through the Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation, an assessment team was dispatched from June 25 to July 2, 2015 to this region to observe and record seismic damages that occurred along the main trekking routes and select villages as a result of the earthquakes. The team was comprised of a structural engineer and an engineering geologist, supported by a professional mountain guide and local conservation officer familiar with the region. The objective of the rapid reconnaissance of the region was to a) develop a baseline understanding of the extent of earthquake-related damage, b) advise on the overall trekking safety of the region’s routes and c) provide recommendations on repairs or risk mitigation that will inform tourism recovery and commercial readiness strategies that are currently being developed by the government, its international development partners, and Nepal’s tourism industry at large. The aim of these efforts is to promote tourism back to Nepal which will support the nation’s economic recovery. The findings of the structural and geotechnical rapid assessment of the region are summarized in this report.
National Geographic Photographer Accurately Sums Up Why Tourists Revisit Nepal
National Geographic Photographer Accurately Sums Up Why Tourists Revisit Nepal Jonathan Irish, a Contributing Photographer of National Geographic, had visited Nepal in 2007. In an Instagram post published on the official @NatGeoTravel account last evening, he told how eagerly he wants to revisit Nepal and espcially after the devastating quakes. He explained that a tourist visits Nepal to trek the world’s highest mountains but they return because of the amazing people. He also urged the travellers to keep Nepal on the top of their bucket list. Here’s what he originally wrote on the post shared with 4.9 million followers of Nat Geo Travel along with this photograph: cover “I miss Nepal. There are some places that stay with you for a really long time. For me, Nepal is one of them. I hiked to Everest Base Camp way back in 2007, it has haunted me ever since. There’s a common saying that goes like this: most people come to Nepal for the mountains, but return for the people. I think that’s really accurate. Walking among the biggest mountains in the world is something special. But it’s the amazing people that make this place unforgettable. I need to go back sometime soon and see this beloved country again especially after the devastating earthquakes recently. Now is the time to support Nepal. If you haven’t been yet, put it to the top of your bucket list.”
