Canyoning Rappelling down natural fresh waterfalls or climbing those using ropes and harnesses is becoming a key attraction for the adventure enthusiasts. Known as Canyoning, the adventure sport allows people to be carried in high speed on downstream waterfalls. In close proximity of the Pokhara valley, a popular site for the sport is in Mahabhir (honey cliff) in Durlung in Parbat’s Kushma municipality.

Rappling down this waterfall cliff is very popular amongst foreign tourists due to the presence of wild beehives on the right side of the cliff. Due to its popularity as adventure sports, the government of Nepal has listed this spot in the 100 key tourism destinations. Another canyoning is in Lwang Ghalel Guan in Kaski district which is situated 1,350 m above sea level. The rappel down distance in the waterfall is about 45 m.
