Zip flyers in Nepal
Zip Flyer - Your adventure begins when you board your shuttle for the ride to the top of 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.
And guess what, there’s more. The HighGround Triangle boasts of a full-fledged restaurant overlooking the gorge and local Tibetan refugee settlement nearby should you wish to get a taste of their culture.
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
