Thanks for your candid review. I am sure it will help others to know what to expect when doing sport climbing around Kathmandu. Unfortunately, we can do little to prevent pollution and graffiti. It is sad that someone would deface this rock wall, as it is part of our national forest. Most of this forest is quite beautiful and it... More

Hardcore Nepal has some really professional guides (Ram and Bilok) who gave us three days of exciting rafting, canyoning and caving. They were also flexible to change the plan because of weather changes. We would have given them 5 stars if it wasn't because our last day of rafting where HN used their partner Paddle Nepal. Paddle Nepal should have... More
