You will be received by our representative on arrival at Kathmandu airport who will help you settle into your hotel. We will spend the next two nights in Kathmandu. Be sure to get a good night’s rest as tomorrow we embark on an exciting journey into the wilderness of Nepal!
Today we drive to Muhan Pokhari after breakfast. Muhan Pokhari, which is the entrance to Shivapuri Watershed and Wildlife Reserve, is a thirty minute drive from Kathmandu. Our hiking expedition begins at the southern boundary of the reserve!
Shivapuri, situated in the north of Kathmandu, is the second highest hill in the valley. It is home to Sloth Bears, Leopards, Muntjacs, Pallas’s Cats, Large Indian Civets, Himalayan Yellow Throated Martens, Indian Pangolins, Wild Boars, Gorals, Indian Porcupines, Common Langurs and a variety of birds.
We hike for about two hours along a rugged yet motorable road through pine and cherry forests up to Nangi Gompa, a Buddhist nunnery. Beyond the nunnery, the trail ascends steeply through oak, rhododendron and bamboo forests. Hiking on this route will take another three hours. On reaching the crest of the valley’s northern rim, you will be rewarded with a view of the scenic Ganesh Himal, Langtang-Lirung and Dorji Lhakpa peaks!
After a three hour journey downhill to Budhanilkantha, we will drive back to Kathmandu.

After breakfast, we drive for about six hours to Chitwan National Park. We aim to reach the park around noon. The next four days will be spent exploring Chitwan’s wilderness!
Chitwan National Park is situated in the subtropical inner Terai lowlands of south central Nepal. The park is known for its population of endangered One-horned Rhinoceros, Tiger and Gharial Crocodile, along with many other species of animals.
On arrival at Chitwan, we check in and settle down for a scrumptious meal and an afternoon of relaxation! You will then be taken on a late afternoon Elephant Safari in the forests within the buffer zone. The safari takes us deep into the forest cutting through thick labyrinth of elephant grass and bamboo.
At dusk we wind up and return to our lodge. In the evening you have a chance to witness a local cultural program.

Day four starts early with a morning safari. The safari begins with a visit to the Gharial Crocodile Breeding Center located inside the park. Here, we will be told about the conservation efforts that are being undertaken to protect the Gharial Crocodile.
After the visit, we will continue on our safari and explore the varied landscape of Chitwan. Look out for the One-horned Rhinoceroses, Tigers, Leopards and the rich array of bird life that inhabits the park. We return to the lodge for breakfast.
In the afternoon we will once again be taken on a game drive to view the wildlife of the park. Be sure to have your eyes peeled for the animals! The day ends in the evening followed by dinner at the lodge.
On day five we will be taken to those sections of Chitwan that we have not yet covered during our stay here. Keep your cameras handy during the game drives to capture the best Chitwan has to offer!
On the morning of day six, we drive to the banks of the river Rapti. Here we embark on a canoe ride. The river serves as a natural boundary that separates the park from human settlements. The canoe ride lends us an opportunity to sight Rhinoceroses and other animals on the banks of the river. We drive back to our lodge for breakfast.
After lunch, we leave for an afternoon safari in order to explore new sections of the park. At dusk we return to the lodge and enjoy a relaxed evening by a bonfire. Dinner is served marking an end to another fascinating day!

Requires a spirit of adventure and some degree of fitness, as the trip might consist of many activities or long journeys. These adventures involve walking, trekking, hiking, cycling, rafting, sea kayaking, or driving for long hours, at times for up to six to eight hours a day at a steady pace. The maximum altitude is 3000m, so it requires you to be reasonably physically fit because you may be travelling in extreme weather conditions. The trips are usually 6 to 12 days in duration.
