WAS IT FUN? Yes, sure. It's a really long flying fox, and you kind of just zip through the air.

WAS IT THRILLING? Yes, sure, if you find heights exhilirating and/or haven't really gone on flying foxes before. For those who have, well, it's just a really long and really high one.

WAS IT WORTH IT? The million dollar question. I was informed it would take 1.5 hours max from departure to drop off back at the shop in town. It took 3.5 hours. Mind you, this effort is for a 90-second 'thrill' ride. It really wasn't all that thrilling, just a great ride. If you're willing to give up half a day for this, sure. Paragliding is probably a better bet, though.

Very well organised, safety conscious. Great fun, though over far too fast. To fly for longer, try paragliding! (we did both!)

A great thrill for the adrenalin junkies out there. It's cheaper on Thursdays and Fridays at 4000NPR compared to the normal price of 5800NPR.

Undoubtedly the highlight of my stay in Pokhara, ZipFlyer Nepal gave me the much-needed adrenaline rush which I was seeking. Para sailing in Pokhara is probably the most popular adventure activity out there, but at around 8000 NPR, I found the cost a little steep. So I decided to go for the next best thing instead, at half the price. To avail their discounted price, you must do it on a weekday, because the weekend price is a tad higher and not quite vfm.
Yes, you would want the ride to last a little longer than the stipulated time but the stupendous views, the incredible speed and the pure exhilaration you experience while riding the tallest and steepest zipline in the world pretty much make up for the short duration.
There is one thing which I find imperative to mention- please don't bother to look at the camera while riding despite the instructions, instead savour the views around you; the best memories are always in your mind, and not in a 90 seconds video.
Also, I must mention that the staff at their office are all very professional, especially Deep who's an extremely friendly guy and explained to me about the whole exercise in detail; he even out of his way and recommended me some nice places to visit around lakeside.
Overall, it was an epic experience and I'm glad I did it.

Helpful and well organized in the main office. Great drive to the site---- amazing views. Beautiful location--- front on view of the mountains! Site seems new and well maintained---which is key for safety! Helpful briefing before we started the zipline. LOVED the ride---about 2 min. Highest/longest in the world--- and great fun. The base station is nice to hang out, while waiting for others to land---- and beautiful flowers/views. Really quite and relaxing to hear the river, birds, and nature (instead of normal city sounds). From start in office, drive up, actual zipline ride, waiting for others, and drive back to office at lakeside--- just over 2 hours. Thoroughly enjoyed and highly recommended!
