Your adventure begins when you board your shuttle for the ride to the top the mountain. Your guide will narrate as you pass through the village of Sarangkot and then up the mountainside.

While you sip coffee and wait for your turn we assure your wait will be exciting. At 5400 feet above sea level you will sit into a special harness seat and await your launch. Two guests launch at once, and it is a race to the bottom! 5,4,3, 2, 1 and you're off, accelerating to 100 mph as you pass above the dense forest below. If your eyes are still open you will see sweeping views of majestic Machhapuchhre, the Annapurna range and the raging Seti River.

SkyZip Safety Considerations:
Safety-First is our credo, and safety is much more than an afterthought in the development of the SkyZip ride; it is an inherent component of every part, every element, every system, and every procedure that was included in its design, development, manufacturing, installation, manuals, and owner/operator training.
While developing the SkyZip system, we were not content with just meeting the industry standards (Every part is precision engineered to equal or surpass the ANSI-B77 Tramway, ASTM and TUV SUD codes), we have collaborated in the design of the system with a leading engineering firm, and plans for every element, component and design element of the ride has been reviewed and stamped by a professional engineering firm.
