“good experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

I've never zip lined before and the though of the longest, fastest and highest zip line definitely got my heart beating rapidly... they experience on the whole was brilliant. We were with a good group of people and the guide was good. I have to say though, for a first timer, the scariest bit was just as the gate opened and after a mere sec you just sit back and enjoy the view.

“What a bust”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

This activity was scheduled for us the morning we were set to leave Pokhara and fly back to Kathmandu. We had a schedule we had to adhere to in order to make our afternoon flight. They picked us up at our hotel about 40 minutes late, took us to their office to have us sign our waivers and weigh us, then loaded us in the car and made us wait for another 20 minutes. By this time we were aware that it was going to be almost impossible to make our flight on time. We asked repeatedly if we could get going, but they seemed to ignore our requests. Instead, they tried to shove an additional 4 people in a completely full jeep. This made it impossible for the driver to operate the vehicle safely. In my opinion, if you can't operate the "front office" safely, I have concerns about the safety of the "back office" (i.e., the zip line). A friend and I asked to be let out of the jeep immediately. We made it to the airport on time, and when the rest of our group showed up (just before boarding), they told us they were rushed all the way to the top of the mountain only to be told as soon as they got there the zip line had been broken all morning and they wouldn't be able to partake. They had to have known that before they carted everyone up there. Which seems like poor business to me. Overall, it was a bust.

Hello ,

We are very sorry that you did not get to experience our ride and we do apologise for everything . We are a brand new company, and its only been a few months since we have been operating the zipline. Once in a while, we do have situations that are out of our control.

On the day you visited, unfortunately our gear retrieval system was experiencing some technical difficulty and it was impossible to operate the ride. Most of these issues have now been ironed out and i hope you give us another chance if you are in Nepal again.

We value your feedback and we are constantly working on providing an amazing experience to everyone.

Again, please accept my apologies and i assure you the next time round your experience will be much much better.

Thanks

Bharat Golchha

“say what?”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

hmmm... they will not take in a deaf participant. many of us (deaf people) have taken on ziplining, paragliding and rafting in many other countries. I have gone on an all deaf rafting expedition on the salmon river, AKA the river of no return (with 15 of us - 100% deaf people, no hearing people). I have gone on bungee jumping in new zealand and mexico. I have gone ziplining several times. I have gone on paragliding and this one will not consider us because of our deafness? (FYI - my friend went paragliding in pokhara with a different company after being turned away by zipflyer). zipflyer: if you are reading this. please reconsider your discriminatory position when considering potential participants. we may be deaf, but that does NOT mean we can not do this or that.

Hi there,
We are really sorry that you did not get to do the ride. We have a very strict policy that dictates who can and who cannot go on the ride. Safety of our customer's is our primary concern and because of the unique characteristics of this ride, we have to maintain these standards.
At any point after launch, our zipline is at-least 1000 ft (300m) from the ground. In the unlikely event that someone requires a rescue mid-air, we require all our participants to follow instructions from our ride operator. A customer with a hearing limitation severely limits our ability to rescue , should that situation ever arise.
Please understand that this was merely a precautionary measure, and in no way were we trying to discriminate against you or anyone else. We also have a similar policy for people with heart, back, neck problems, pregnant women, and people with other disabilities (e.g. People who cannot see etc).

Once again, we do apologise for not being able to take you on the zipline.
