Early morning breakfast and we check out the hotel to go to Pokhara. A 7 hours drive by tourist bus takes us to the amazingly beautiful city of Pokhara 200 km west of Kathmandu. The drive is very scenic which goes through the winding and stretching road along side the famous rafting river of Trishuli and later on Marsyangdi. The passing through some beautiful small Nepali towns will give you some glimpses of countryside of Nepal.
We drive from Pokhara to Nayapul, the starting point of the trek, which is about 1.5 hours drive and we will eventually trek to Tikhedhunga on a nice dirt road alongside beautiful river stream. The beginning of the trek gives you some glimpses of the Himalayan peaks but rest of the day we will enjoy the beauty of green mountain surroundings and local villages. We will spend the night at an effortless Guest House (called the tea house) at 1527 meters.
After a mouth watering mountain breakfast at the tea house we start the trek of the day. Probably the most difficult day of the trek in the sense the trail goes only higher on elevation. The first part of the trek is a steep upward walking for about 2 Hrs and then a gradual upward walk. The walk on the stone paved steps is a daring adventure early in the morning. The whole trail leads you through village and forest to Ghorepani and all the adventure that you dare through out the day will be rewarded when you reach Ghorepani with magnificently close up view of the Himalaya (given the weather is clear). We will stay the night at a Guest House at 2850 meters.
We will hike to Poon hill, the highlight of the trip, about 1.5 Hrs early in the morning to see a spectacular sunrise and the mountain views of 10 different peaks. We will trek back to Ghorepani for the breakfast. After enjoying the second mountain breakfast, we will trek to Tadapani, another great place to take a close up view of the Himalaya. It is a pleasant walk through a lush green forest. Eventually we will stay the night at a guest house at 2700 meters.
We start the trek after breakfast at Tadapani. The trek today will take us to Ghandruk with the walk of about four hours. We walk through forested area and reach Ghadruk to enjoy a stunning view of the Himalayan peaks. We can explore the beautiful Gurung village of Ghandruk.
After breakfast, we walk to Nayapul for about three hours and drive back to Pokhara. After reaching the hotel and checkin in, there will be some free time for leisurely stroll around lakeside.
We drive to rafting point for about four hours. We meet the rafting crew and they will inform us about the rafting and safety. Three hours on the water is going to be fun and exciting today. We reach the River Camp for the lunch and overnight stay there.
Another day of exciting rafting for three hours. We drive to Chitwan after the rafting is done. Once we arrive at hotel in Chitwan, we will be informed about the schedule for our jungle safari activities and we\'ll follow the schedule.
Full day in Chitwan National Park for exciting activities like: jungle walk, elephant riding, village visit, canoeing, visit to elephant breeding center, bird-watching etc. A nature guide will lead us through all the activities giving us more insights about the wildlife, flora and fauna in the national park.
