Okay, so canyoning is the best water sport in Nepal hands down! This involves sliding, climbing, jumping into turquoise pools and swimming in the waters of Nepal, all of which are exciting and thrilling activities that you cannot miss out on.
If you love water and can go crazy on the canyon cliffs of Nepal then do try canyoning there as it is something that you would want to come back for again and again.
Canyoning automatically brings you closer to nature and make you fall in love with the extreme water sports which challenge you both physically and mentally.
The natural beauty surrounding you while canyoning is something that you can observe from down below too.
However, observing it from this perspective is a whole new and more rewarding experience which you will remember for the rest of your life.
The slippery rocks make it hard to the canyon, but do not let your inner adventure-lover be intimidated by this as the result will be worth every difficulty.
