If you haven’t got off your fat ass and jumped off a bridge yet! I would highly recommend jumping that ass off the swinging bridge at the world-famous The Last Resort just north of Katmandu not far from the border of Tibet. It’s suspended 525ft in a gorge above a raging river that is at first spooky to even think about crossing to reach the bar on the other side!
(Stories to come. I will break this up into several session detailing some location during my first visit. A 5 months journey throughout Nepal and India. So much information. I don’t want to be a bore with long stories and big paragraphs.)
Now! We got our drink on cause we arrived a day early. We decided to hike up that hill that you can see clearly in the background photo below. Interestingly enough, we came across a little village. 5-7 village farmer homes. Water source in the central, right next to the square which hosted the village market. Kinda like a 7-11 but local. Maybe packed mulled in. And can you believe it…! Those bastards had cans of PBR on the shelf! (viewed in photo) Lukewarm, dust and all. We couldn’t believe it! So we bought what the store had in stock, maybe a case, and hung out in the village central watching the local women bath in public and got our drink on!!!! All of it! PBR on a mountain top in BFE NEPAL! It’s once in a lifetime. Holy shit!
Way up on top of the world and the happy part was… It was all downhill from there straight into the cue, the check in counter then marched out onto the bridge!
Chris (I’ll keep his last name secret for family purposes) is the fucken man! This man is the perfect backpack buddy. And I mean. –getting kicked out of the guided car in the middle of the night, full moon, only to follow me into the cab of a lorry with a bunch of Indians in God knows where country going God knows where without freaking out makes for a bitchen good travel buddy! Nepal, India…. What a trip of a lifetime thanks to this man! (Chris will be featured in the upcoming India/Nepal stories.)
So as you do your homework and make your plans to fly into Kathmandu in Nepal; order up a Brick as your BUDDY GUIDE.
Now a look from below. No pics were snapped during the 1.25-hour climb back up the ridge to the bridge only to suit up and jump off again! Must be physically fit. No lift to the top!
At the end of the all. I return 3 months later to do the canyon swing with the wife! Even better!
I do have to add that the bus journey to this place made this adventure a solid trip!
