Plan afoot to launch Nepal’s ‘first adventure park’ in Dharan
Kathmandu : Tourism entrepreneurs of Dharan are constructing what they call it the ‘first adventure park’ in Nepal. The construction was inaugurated on the occasion of Vijaya Dashain, Nepal’s biggest festival, on 26 October 2020.
The first-of-its-kind park in Dharan covers an area of 3.5 Bighas and has estimated cost of Rs. 100 million.
The park will have multiple adventure activities in the same premises, said Basudev Baral, the cooperator of Sechha Adventures and Holidays that is running the park project.
”The park will have 200-meter-long zip-line, 150-meter-long sky cycling, few handing bridges, a 5-feet-tall glass bridge and the likes,” informed Baral. He added, ”zip-line, sky cycling and bridge packages will be commercially operational within couple of months.”
According to Alina Magar, another cooperator of the Rs. 100 million park project, the full-fledge project will be accomplished within three years which includes jungle resort, children park, swimming pool, among others.
Located at Dharan Sub-Metropolitan City-20 Kalimati, the under-construction park is 3.9 kilometer away from Zero Point of Dharan and can be reached within 10 minutes drive.
Of late, Dharan has been a preferred destination for adventure project. Last year since March 7, Dharan hosted first zip-flyer in Province One.
The 650-meter-long zip-flyer was inaugurated by Chief Minister of Province One Sherdhan Rai which has takeoff station at the welcome gate of Bhedetar and landing station at Debhithan of Dharan-4.
Besides newly operated zip-flyer and under-constructing adventure park, Dharan has operational commercial adventures like paragliding, rafting and mountain biking, golfing, among others.
