Look’s like there is soon to be another reason to visit Pokhara! In a month’s time High Ground Adventures will be introducing SkyZip which is more or less an extreme version of zip wire. Upon completion the SkyZip in Pokhara will become the world’s fastest, steepest and longest in the world. Quiet a triple threat there, I’ve done a zip-wire in England but that was from a tree and I tell you it’s amazing! I just wonder what the thrill would be like doing it from top of a hill that is 600 meters high, going the distance of 1.8km at 160km/h. Should be intense right? Their official site is still under construction with a countdown which states it will be up and running in 12 days but you can check out the Facebook page to see what this is really about. There are videos of other SkyZips around the world and digital images of what the site will look like etc!
Watch the video of a ZipLine in Haiti and that’ll give you a clearer idea of what one can expect.
PS. They are recruiting so if you guys are laying idle then check out the vacancies on their FB page.
