On this exclusive trek, we combine the Annapurna Trek with a wildlife safari at Chitwan National Park. This adventure is a fine contrast between trekking the remote foothills of the Annapurna’s and a safari in the vicinity of Chitwan National Park. 

After arriving in Kathmandu, you will have time for a break before a briefing with your guides.  Enjoy some sightseeing in Kathmandu before we make our way to Pokhara, set on the beautiful Phew Tal (Lake).  Pokhara is Nepal’s second largest town.  

The trek you are undertaking encompasses all the highlights you would expect from a trek in the Annapurna range. Beginning in the foothills we trek through delightful villages and rural landscapes where we take in the local way of life. We are rewarded with the stunning panorama of the Annapurnas.  From here we depart the main trail to complete a more remote traverse above the Annapurna Circuit, all the while accompanied by stunning mountain views as we make our way to Nayapul. 

With two nights in Pokhara, there’s some leisure time to enjoy the culture that Nepal has to offer.  We then head south to Nepal’s Terai region.  A visit to Chitwan reveals an unexpected side to Nepal yet an attractive proposition for nature lovers. Located on the fringe of the Indian plains, the park boasts diverse forest and grasslands. Days are spent venturing into the wilderness on foot, by jeep or dug‑out canoe to view one‑horned black rhinoceros and bengal tigers, sloth bear, leopard, jungle cats, wild boar, otter, Langur, rhesus and the macaque monkey.  

We return to Kathmandu where we explore Nepal’s exciting capital before the conclusion of our tour.

We hope you can join us in Nepal!
