Best of Nepal Trekking

Trip Overview

This trip is the best possible introduction of Nepal to those who want to see more of the country on a single visit. On this trip you go through 2 of the most popular trekking routes of Nepal. This is a combination of The Annapurna Trek and The Special Everest Trek with a relaxing 2 days in the Heart of the Chitwan National Park.

Best of Nepal TrekkingAnnapurna Trek, Pokhara & Chitwan

The Annapurna trek passing through Gorkha villages with many great views of the mighty Himalaya and it's surrounding landscape. At the end of the first trek we have two days of exploring and relaxing by the serene Phewa Lake followed by 2 nights in the Chitwan National Park is a great way to 'get close' to the wildlife of the Indian sub-continent.

The activities include jungle walk, jungle drive, bird watching and the exciting elephant rides. After the mild activities in the jungle resort you will be ready to tackle the adventure of this magnificent trip.

The Everest Trek

We fly into the Everest valley known as the Khumbu valley. This is the home to some of the hardiest and most famous mountain climbers in the world, the Sherpas. Along with some of the highest mountains in the world, you will be able to see some of the tamest musk deer, Himalayan Tahr and many species of birds. The reason for the tameness of these wildlife is this valley is in the Sagarmatha National Park where hunting is banned but more so due to the Sherpas being Buddhists thus heeding the teaching of ahimsa - non-violence. You will be visiting the Pangboche and Thyangboche monasteries, the oldest and the spiritual center of the Khumbu valley.

Client Reviews

Greetings from Crescent Head. It has been a month since we left your wonderful country. I have been going through our photos of what was, the trip of a lifetime. We both extend a big thank you to you and all your team. Our hotels in Kathmandu, Pokhara and Chitwan were superb (especially the Manaslu, architecture, staff, rooms and food all excellent). Our transport between areas was comfortable and scenic. Our lovely lady tour guide (whose name I have forgotten) provided a wealth of information on the history, culture and religions of the Kathmandu valley. Our trekking team were a great group of guys, who looked after our every need. Many thanks to Pashang (great guy and leader) and Sundra (not only a good cook but a great wildlife spotter) for helping Deb on the more difficult sections of the treks and pointing out all landmarks and answering my many questions. We extend our admiration and thanks to our porters, carrying our gear, always smiling and asking if we needed anything.
