Nepal is not just home to some of the highest mountains in the world and is popular for trekking; it is also popular for an array of unique experiences. No doubt, thousands of travelers visit Nepal to trek in the Himalayas, explore historic cities, try high-adrenaline rafting, and go mountain biking. Many travelers of different ages also visit Nepal for incredible range of experiences and adventures. This includes local unique activities like pottery makeing classes  momo-making, rickshaw riding,Thanka painting, and many more.

Nepal is truly a dream destination for travelers and offers a plethora of opportunities. Whether you're first time in Nepal or it's your 10th time, there's always something new for you and something more. Although you may visit Nepal to trek in the Himalayas, you can always try something unique, like mentioned above. You must have tried momo in the local restaurant in Nepal, but you probably hadn't kneaded dough, made momo wrappers and prepared the fillings. Did you know that you can join a momo-making class?

If you are someone who doesn't care much about dramatic Himalayan scenery and cultural insight, you are welcome to try one of the listed unique activities that are sure to excite you. One of the unique things you can do is join Khukuri-making class. Yes, you can learn to make your own khukuri knife with a master blacksmith at his workshop. Remember, you can start with zero knowledge and even get to home the khukuri you made. Similarly, you can join a pottery class in Bhaktapur. Shape the clay, spin the wheelers and make your own small pot.

If you are a food lover who has a refined interest in food, Nepal is heaven for you. You can try a variety of street food, local and mixed cuisine. Apart from the popular delicacies like momo, chowmin, dal bhat, there are a number of iconic food in Kathmandu for you to savor. Rickshaw riding along the narrow Kathmandu street can be unforgettable for you. Imagine exploring Kathmandu on a rickshaw through the labyrinthine lanes and clicking amazing shots. For art-lover, the Thangka painting class is the best deal. Get a hands-on introduction to Thangka painting and paint one for yourself.

You must have seen the art and architecture in the temples, palaces, courtyards and monasteries in Nepal. And if it has intrigued you, you are welcome to join a word-carving class where you get to carve with the chisels on a block of wood. In addition, we have many other unique and special classes in this category. Please note that you don't need prior experience or insights to try these classes. You can directly join the classes and go home with something extraordinary and unique experience and knowledge.

Third Rock Adventures
Participating in the Khukuri Making Workshop in Kathmandu was a hands-on journey into the heart of Nepalese tradition and artistry. Third Rock Adventures orchestrated an immersive experience where I had the privilege of crafting my own Khukuri, guided by skilled artisans. The workshop unfolded like a cultural tapestry, weaving together the history, significance, and intricate techniques behind Khukuri-making. The patience and expertise of the ...

The workshop provided not just a hands-on lesson in crafting the iconic Khukuri but also a deep dive into the cultural significance behind this legendary weapon. Under the expert guidance of skilled artisans, I immersed myself in the intricate process of forging and shaping the Khukuri, creating a blade that told its own story. The personalized attention and patience of the instructors made the workshop accessible even to beginners. The imm...

I completed mardi himal trek and added Chitlang Homestay Tour on the recommendation of Naba. No doubt, I had the best experience. It's unique to see Nepali people living under diferent circumstances yet adhere to their lifestyle and culture. I got to taste locally cooked Dal Bhat and locally grown oranges. It was amazing experience interacting with the local-homestay owner. Great tour....

Guinness World Record holder Gives Third Rock Adventures a Review!

werner berger

Werner Berger is the Guinness Book of World Records holder for being the oldest person in the World to have climbed the highest mountain on each of the seven (7) continents (incl. Mt. Everest).

I am Werner Berger and my "claim to fame" is probably best defined as being in the Guinness Book of World Records as the oldest person in the world to have climbed the highest mountain on each of the seven continents, including Mt. Everest.

Little did I know my life was to change forever on my first trek into the Himalaya in 1992 at age 55. It was the beginning and just a matter time before I realized I could combine my leadership and climbing skills to create a program in which people could explore their own possibilities.

So, in 2010, I began leading Transformational Life Experiences, treks to Mt. Everest Base Camp and other high places.

One of the earliest keys to success is to find a company with the right mix of professionalism, support, and, of course, experience. I have used Naba Amgai and his teams on all my Nepal trekking adventures.

Naba's caring and climber support, is second to none. In my estimation, Third Rock Adventures is one of the very best in the business, in or outside of Nepal. They know the mountains. So you can relax, enjoy and transform.
