Trip Overview

Trip Highlight

Easy walking holiday in the Annapurna, Trek through beautiful Nepalese villages, Includes trek to Poon Hill and Ghorepani, Sunrise over the Himalaya, Nepal lodge trek holiday, NO camping, Kathmandu sightseeing, Experience Nepalese village life, Elephant back safari in Chitwan National Pak, Kathmandu, Pokhara and Chitwan

This is a combination of one of the most popular and best-known viewpoint treks in Nepal; short, but thrilling, white water rafting, and finally a Himalayan wildlife experience with elephant-back safari. The trail is not overly difficult, and there are plenty of villages along the way. It is possible to fit into one week a short, low-altitude trek to Ghodepani and Pun Hill, from where there are magnificent panoramic views of the snow- covered peaks of Dhaulagari I to V, Nilgiri, Machhapuchhare, Annapurna South, Himchuli, Bharashikar and other peaks.

After a couple of days and nights in Kathmandu, acclimatizing, sightseeing and resting, followed by a spectacular short flight to, and a night in, the lovely, lakeside resort of Pokhara (820m) - the Pokhara valley, incidentally, is the closest valley in distance (29 km) to the great Himalaya –  the trek begins at Nayapul, a short drive from Pokhara, and passes through many Gurung and Magar villages, such as Ghandruk, which is the largest Gurung village in Nepal, home to many male members of the local community who risk, or have given, their lives to serve with the British Gurkhas and security forces around the world.

In the first day or so, there is the challenge of a very steep hill climb of almost 4000 steps, before the trail moves along ridges where stunning panoramic views disclose spectacular mountain-scapes. One early morning sees a diversion from the trail,  when there is a steep, torchlit climb, to the famous Pun Hill (3210m), for one of Nepal’s best panoramic, 360 degree,  sunrise views, encompassing Daulaghiri I - V, Nilgiri (7061m) , Machhapuchhare (6993m) , South Annapurna(7219m) and Himchuli (6441m).

This is a classic trek with a well-deserved reputation for spectacular mountain views, breathtaking sunrises, jungles and beautiful rhododendron forests (the tree rhododendron, Lali Gurans, is Nepal’s national, and much-treasured flower). It culminates in the village of Pothana (1969m) where there will be a last night and farewell party – a cause for celebration and feasting at the end of this spectacular trek – before moving back to Pokhara and then off to start a couple of days’ rafting on the Seti River, from Damauli set in point  a short drive away. The Seti river is one of the warmest rivers in Nepal and offers an experience guaranteed to excite those with, and without, previous white water experience.

At Gaighat, further down the river, the rafting ends, and another bus journey takes us on to Chitwan National Park, sanctuary for the endangered one-horned rhino and the Bengal Tiger. Chitwan provides the opportunity to experience a completely opposite life style, landscape and climate, to that of the Annapurna region, reminding you that Nepal is even more than mountains!

Thus, within just over a fortnight in Nepal, it is possible to have a taste of the most popular outdoor activities on offer  – mountain trekking, river rafting, and jungle exploration.
