It is a panoramic thrill flying into Kathmandu on a clear day. The views of snow-capped mountain peaks sprawling down below you are almost ecstatic, beginning a whole chain of memorable experiences that stay with you for a long, long time. A representative and driver from our office will meet you at the airport and escort you to your hotel. At the hotel you will be briefed about your daily activities. Overnight at Hotel.
Kathmandu is the historical and cultural heart of Nepal and has been a popular destination for tourists ever since Nepal opened its doors to visitors. The city presents a wonderful mix of Hinduism, Tibetan Buddhism and Western influence in the Valley. Patan and Bhaktapur, its two major neighboring cities bear immense historical, cultural and religious significances. There will be a half day guided tour to the famous and biggest Hindu shrine of Pashupatinath, the largest Buddhist stupa in Nepal Boudhanath, the 15th century Palace of 55 windows and Swayambhunath. Overnight at Hotel.
After breakfast at the hotel you will be transfer to domestic airport fly to Pokhara. Pokhara is lying 210 km away from Kathmandu, you witness breathtaking and captivating views of 8000 meter peaks. Your Pokhara sightseeing tour includes visits to mesmerizing lakes like Phewa, Mahendra Gupha and Gupteshwor Cave, Binde Basini Temple, Davis Fall and Tibetan refugee camp. On reaching domestic airport by our trekking crew we drive to Bijayapur Khola (Bijayapur Army Camp)-Kalikasthan (1429m.). The trail takes us through rice fields near the Army Camp, and then ascends through Rakhigaon to Chautara. En-route, one can enjoy the majestic views of Himalayas. We finally reach Kalikasthan at (1429m.) which offers panoramic view of mountains, Begnas Tal and Pokhara city. Lunch, Dinner and Overnight at Local Lodge.
We highly suggest that you exit your tents early to enjoy the sensational views of the Annapurna Mountains as the first pink of dawn hits the high peaks. You proceed along a dirt road for part of the way but most of today’s walk is on local trails, following up and down along the main ridge, through idyllic scenery of villages and terraced fields and passing the occasional small Hindu temple. Many of the village houses here are very delightfully painted an ochre colour, and be on the lookout for some traditional oval shaped houses which are probably quite ancient. This is a fairly prosperous area and the people you meet will be an ethnic mixture of Gurung, Bahun and Chhetri. Many people from the Gurung ethnic tribe of this region have traditionally been recruited to serve in Gurkha regiments in both the British and Indian armies. The populace have benefited not only from farming and trading, but also from generations of pay and pensions being remitted home by these soldiers. On our family treks we have been very delighted to see how much the village children enjoy intermingling to play games with our children, as will our trek staff! There are one or two rigorous climbs, but nothing too steep or lengthy. You finally arrive at the ridge top village of Libyani where it is possible to buy cold drinks and crisps and then it is just a short walk to your campsite on a small next to a farm house and enjoying amazing mountain views. Lunch, Dinner and Overnight at Local Lodge.
This day is perhaps the best day of the trek. Again there are wonderful views of the peaks to the north and the villages that you pass through particularly charming. First you wind around the hillside and drop down through various farming communities to contour through jungle. You pass across two small ravines to reach a cluster of houses on a saddle with a huge Banyan tree (992m). From here it is a long way down a steep hill through forest to another collection of houses at the bottom, Karabutan (826m). Another hour or so of fairly gentle climbing up the ridge brings you to the village of Chisapani and from there it is just 15 minutes up through fields, facing south on old terraces. Lunch, Dinner and Overnight at Local Lodge.
Today it is a descent to Rupa Tal Lake. Firstly, you descend along the ridge through a couple of small settlements and then you descend more steeply to the valley floor through the forest using stone steps – take care here as these steps can be slippery. You reach the bottom and cross a pretty patchwork of rice fields, past a school and several farm houses to reach almost as far as the end of Rupa Lake, before slowly ascending the ridge which separates Rupa Tal Lake from the larger Begnas Tal Lake. It is a short climb to the top of this ridge where you come suddenly to the houses of the village of Sundaridanda where there are a couple of teahouses where you can buy cold drinks, before continuing on up the ridge to your lunch spot. After lunch it is just a half hour walk down to the road head, at the busy dilapidated village of Begnas Tal, where your bus will be waiting to take you into Pokhara. In all likelihood your trek staff and porters will travel with you on the same bus and there should be a very jolly end of trek atmosphere on the journey. You drive for about an hour into Pokhara town and after saying teary farewells to your trek crew and porters you will check into your hotel. Overnight at Hotel.
Leaving Pokhara early in the morning, you will drive for three hours to the raft put-in point. Depending on the level of the river, this will probably be at the small village of Fishling about half an hour beyond Mugling. Once there you will meet by your rafting crew member and short briefing about the safety and you will be issued with helmets and life vests. You then climb aboard your rafts and set off rafting. There should be a couple of more exhilarating rapids and some enjoyable float sections before you land on a beach for a picnic lunch beside the river. If the day is hot there may be chances for water fights between the various rafts. You are very likely to get wet! After lunch you set off again and raft down to your camp which will probably be near the mereging of the Marsyangdi and Trisuli Rivers at Mugling. If anyone opts not to raft, they can proceed on the bus and drive to the river camp instead and the route provides numerous opportunities to watch the rafts as they move downstream. Lunch, Dinner and Overnight at Lodge or Camp.
After a hearty breakfast you will have another 2½ hours of enjoyable rafting to reach the take out point, a sandy beach, below the village of Gaighat. Here you will have a picnic lunch before bidding farewell to your rafting crew. You then board your vehicle and drive down to Chitwan. Chitwan National Park is home to a large variety of animals such as deer, rhino and Bengal Tiger. Many jungle activities are on offer from the lodge including elephant safaris, Jungle walks and bird watching walks - on these excursions you can anticipate sighting rhinos, three types of deer and many other animals as well as a wide range of exotic birds. There is an observation tower overlooking a rhino wallow about 15 minutes’ walk from the forest entrance gate. You may also take a canoe trip down the river where you will see a wide range of birds as well as animals. In the park you may visit the gharial crocodile breeding project. Once you have been briefed on the facilities of the lodge and settled in there should be time for an activity in the afternoon normally either a jungle walk or an elephant safari. Lunch, Dinner and Overnight Hotel.
