5th National Canyoning Festival 2019 concluded
Nepal Canyoning Association (NCA) organised its 5th National Canyoning Festival on July 13 at Sundarijal. Held in the lap of Shivapuri National Park, the annual festival draws quite a number of city dwellers and foreigners to the adventure. Many participants descend from Syalmati waterfall during the festival.
Although canyoning has been gaining popularity in Nepal since 2002, it only gained official recognition and organisational structure in 2007 after the establishment of the Nepal Canyoning Association. Today, numerous travel agencies offer canyoning packages all over Nepal, Sindhupalchok, Kavre, Nuwakot, Lamjung, and Syangja among others.
