CHITWAN NP

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.

Itinerary

Arrive in Kathmandu where you are met at the airport and transferred to your hotel.

In the early morning you have the option of a scenic mountain flight to Mount Everest. The day will then be
spent exploring Kathmandu with visits to Pashupatinath Temple, one of the holiest Hindu temples dedicated to
Lord Shiva on the banks of the sacred Bagmati River, and Boudhnath Stupa:the biggest Buddhist monuments in
Nepal and home to many Tibetans in the valley. (B)

Fly to Pokhara with magnificent views of the Himalayan range, and the 8000 metre peaks of Manaslu and Annapurna seen to the north. You explore the monasteries, temples and museums of Pokhara as well as enjoying Phewa Tal (lake) by boat where the Himalayan giants of Machhapuchhre and Annapurna can be seen reflected on the water of the lake. From colourful Pokhara you drive to the Chitwan National Park to enjoy guided jungle adventures, an elephant safari and dugout canoe ride in search of exotic
wildlife to view rhino, deer, crocodile and if you are lucky tiger.
The park is one of Asia’s premier reserves and is a designated UNESCO World Heritage Park. From the tranquillity of the forest you return
to the charming chaos Kathmandu.(B)
