01Mountain Madness Nepal is a shortened version of Lost Earth Adventure’s hugely popular Nepal Xtreme Tour, created for those that are looking for adventure but have tighter time constraints and are unable to take extended holidays.

The 13 day tour highlights include:

  • White water rafting on the Bhote Kosi
  • Dynamic downhill mountain biking
  • Enjoying commanding views of three of the 8,000m peaks whilst paragliding
  • Heart wrenching bungee jump 160m above a raging river 12km from the Tibetan border
  • Exquisite views of the Himalayas
  • UNESCO listed Kathmandu Valley
  • The chance to see famous peaks including Mount Everest.

02Nepal is the definitive adventurer’s playground, from the world’s deepest gorge, to the highest peak in the world, it has it all, and Mountain Madness Nepal is perfect for those that thrive on adrenalin.

Explore the country from every angle as you soar above the mountains suspended under a canopy of silk, run river rapids getting up close to the country’s water ways, pass local villages on the best mountain biking trails in the Himalaya and abseil down steep canyon walls.

The trip is considered to be challenging, it visits high altitudes, remote regions, features technical mountain-biking descents, the rivers rafted vary from 3+ to 4+ and guests need to carry their cold weather clothing for the 4-day mountain biking trip on their back.

Mountain Madness Nepal costs £1,650 excluding international flights. 2014 departures are 9 March, 27 April, 5 October and 9 November and the tour runs from Sunday to Friday.
