CHITWAN NATIONAL PARK

The park is located in the lowland area known as the Terai and close to the Indian border. The jungle, rivers and wildlife are in total contrast to the mountains of the Himalayan peaks to the north. Formerly a hunting reserve, the park is one of the richest and varied wildlife parks in Asia.

THE ANNAPURNAS

The Annapurnas offer jaw dropping views of valleys and the Himalayas. Whether you’re a hard core trekker or simply looking to experience local life in rural Nepal, the Annapurna region will leave you wanting more. Walk through villages hundreds of years old, see farmers work the land and how the locals live in this extreme climate.

The trek passes through the middle hill ranges of the Annapurna mountains, offering considerable diversity. We visit friendly lowland Hindu and Buddhist villages, follow forested
trails and enjoy spectacular views of the Annapurna range throughout the trek.
At Deurali, the high point of the walk, we experience breathtaking views of three of the world’s tallest mountains, Dhaulagiri, Annapurna and Manaslu, a panoramic view said to be among the best in the Himalaya.

From here we enjoy a steep descent from Ulleri to the valley and finish the trek at
Birethanti for transfer to beautiful Pokhara. Here you have two nights to relax or explore the town close to the shores of Lake Phewa.

Drive from Pokhara to one of Asia’s premier wildlife parks in Chitwan. Based at Gaida Wildlife Camp we enjoy elephant safaris, canoe trips and jungle walks, observing a variety of wildlife that includes over 300 species of birds, deer, crocodile, rhino,
