I really had one of the most adventurous holidays of my life with Actual Adventure. All the services were great and I enjoyed the thrill and adventures throughout my Nepal stay and Sujan was with me throughout all the adventures. I really loved rafting, bunjee jumping and paragliding other adventures were also fun though. The services of the company were great and exceeded all my expectations. I highly recommend this company for any kind of outdoor activities in Nepal.
