A combination of easy trekking, rafting, Nepal’s cultural sights and a chance to see some of Nepal’s wildlife, this varied trip is an ideal introduction to Nepal for people who want to trek a little, but not too much.
Flying into Kathmandu, we have time to discover this enthralling city and take the Everest View flight before our 5-day trek in the Annapurna foothills. Our efforts on trek are richly rewarded with scenic views from Ghorepani and Poon Hill where we can see sunrise over the Annapurna range.
We return to the ever-popular Lakeside region of Pokhara before embarking on a half-day gentle rafting trip and 2 nights in Chitwan National Park a for chance to see Nepal’s exciting wildlife. Returning to Kathmandu we visit the timeless city of Bhaktapur; Nepal’s former capital, now a World Heritage site.
