A journey From Temples to Tigers Via 3 Days Trek

10 nights 11 Days Program
Nepal has seen many rulers and ruling dynasties, which lead to a colorful, mixed history. From the moment you arrive at Kathmandu, discover its enrichment with more temples than homes, and its festivals that seemingly exceed the number of the days in a year. After exploring the whole valley with its ancient architectural wonders we drive to Pokhara, Nepalís second most popular tourist destination nestled beneath the snow-crested Annapurna Massif. In this tour we take care that being in a country at the top of the world you should not miss the opportunity of viewing the grand views of glistening mountain panorama. In Pokhara we make a three days trek to a viewpoint for the spectacular Himalayan panorama extending from Dhaulagiri to Annapurna to Machhapuchhre; that stretches from Dhaulagiri I (8167m) and Tukuche (6920m) to Nilgiri (6940m), Annapurna South, Annapurna I (8091m), Hiunchuli (6441m) and Tarke Kang (7193m). On our return drive to Kathmandu we stop at Chitwan where we understand why Nepal is considered the biggest natural museum in the world. The Chitwan National Park has Sal forests which cover 70% of the area and there are about 600 species of plants. The Park is home to the only significant number of one-horned rhinos and other endangered species like the Bengal tiger, the gangetic dolphins and the gharial crocodile. There are altogether over 43 species of large mammals, 526 species of birds, 150 different types of butterflies, 126 species of fish and 49 species of reptiles in this wonderful Park.
