Extreme Zipline Over Nepal

Would you do this? Or should I say, could you do this? Could you do it sober? ZipFlyer Nepal has created the world’s most extreme zipline adventure.

Climbing the Himalayas is widely considered to be one of the toughest tests of a mountaineer’s strength and endurance. Coming down the Himalayas via the ZipFlyer is also a test of nerves.

The ZipFlyer Nepal takes thrill-seekers over dense forest at speeds of up to 100mph from a platform overlooking the Himalayas.

The slide, built at Sarangkot, near the Nepalese city of Pokhara, has a vertical drop of almost 2,000 feet and covers a distance of 1.8 kilometers (that’s a little over one mile to you and me).

The trip down the mountain takes about one minute, with a magnetic brake bringing the pulley to a complete stop at the end of the run.
