Of course, spending a Family Holiday in Nepal can be a lifetime experience. We begin the trip with the rewarding sightseeing tour of Kathmandu valley, also known as the City of Temples. In the valley, you will visit many beautiful temples and monasteries which have been listed as UNESCO World Heritage Cultural Sites. After the sightseeing tour of Kathmandu, we drive to Pokhara to enjoy the amazing blend of the natural panorama. Here in Pokhara you will do boating on Fewa Lake and visit  Davi’s Water Fall, Gupteshwor Mahadev Cave, Bindyabashini Temple, Seti River Gorge, Bat Cave, and others.  Then, we begin our trek  to Ghorepani Poon Hill  following the route to Deurali, Landruk, Ghandruk, and  Tadapani.

After the trek, we get back to Pokhara and enjoy rafting in the Trishuli River on the way to Chitwan National Park. In the park, we spend 2 days exploring Chitwan National Park involving in various activities such as Elephant Safari, Boating, Bird Watching and observe Asian one-horned Rhinoceros and Royal Bengal Tigers. Finally, we end up our tour by returning to Kathmandu. While in Kathmandu, we enjoy Everest Mountain Flight to view the Himalayan mountain range.


  • Arrive at the (TIA) Tribhuwan International Airport where you will be welcomed by Trek Himalayan representative and transferred to your hotel. The rest of the afternoon is free until evening when you’ll enjoy a welcome drinks with your guide and introduce each other. Overnight in Kathmandu

    Hotel Accommodation (Kathmandu)

    Royal Singi [4 Stars Category Hotel]

    This is an example of the hotel we may use in Kathmandu city. Your actual hotel will be specified when your booking is confirmed. Please check your email or booking confirmation.

  • After breakfast sightseeing tour begins which include all the religious, cultural & historical sites within the Kathmandu valley. Overnight in hotel

    Pashupatinath (World Heritage Site): One of the holiest Hindu shrines in the world, the temple of Pashupatinath is the focus of pilgrims from all over from Nepal and India. The temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva and built in the familiar pagoda Style. Chronicles indicate the temple’s existence prior to 400 A.D. It lies 5 kms east of the city centre. This holy place is picturesque collection of temples and shrines. All the dying persons are brought to Pashupatinath for cremation. Only the Hindus are allowed to go inside the temple.

    Bouddhanath (World Heritage Site): It is the world’s biggest stupa located about two km to the north of Pashupatinath temple. This colossal stupa is known by the name of Bouddhanath, the god of wisdom. It is difficult to assign a period to it as some believe that it was built during the reign of either Shiva Deva or Anshu Verma in the 17th century A.D. The design is much like the Swoyambhu stupa, except that the final consists of receding squares instead of circles. Bouddhanath attracts Buddhist pilgrims from all over the world.

    Swoyambhunath, Monkey Temple (World heritage Site): The Swoyambhunath Stupa crowns a hillock to the west of Kathmandu. A massive white dome surrounded by a 13 stage spire, is one of the most sacred Buddhist sites in Nepal. It is said to be 2000 years old. Its origins are linked to the founding of the Kathmandu Valley by draining the water of the lake by Bouddhisattva Manjushree. Swoyambhunath manifested in the lake as a brilliant light emanating from a lotus, Manjushree let the water out of the valley paying homage to Swoyambhu, thus making the valley inhabitable.

    Kathmandu Durbar Square (World Heritage Site): It is the nine-storied palace structure built around 1770 AD. This palace square was a residence to Nepal’s royal family. The house of the living goddess (Kumari), the ferocious Kal Bhairav, the red Monkey God and hundreds of erotic carvings are a few examples of the sights at the square. All woodcarvings, statues and architectures in this area are exceptionally fine. Most parts of the palace premises are open for tourist throughout the week during office hours.

  • Today after early breakfast, you will be transferred to Bus stop to catch bus for Pokhara. The bus will leave at 7.30 a.m. for the enchanting valley of Pokhara which is considered the paradise on earth! Beautiful mountains in the north side, clean and wide lakes in the middle of the city, green forest, friendly and warm locals make your holidays more meaningful. Boating on Fewa Lake for one hour in the evening will be an amazing experience… Overnight in Hotel

    Phewa Lake, the second largest lake in Nepal, is the center of all attractions in Pokhara. It is the largest and most enchanting of the three lakes that add to the resplendence of this lake city. Here, you can row a hired boat and visit the island temple in the middle of the Phewa lake.

    The Barahi temple is the most important monument in the city, built almost in the center of Phewa Lake, this two-storied pagoda is dedicated to the boar manifestation of Ajima, the protectress deity representing the female force Shakti. Devotees can be seen, especially on Saturdays, carrying male animals and fowl across the lake to be sacrificed to the deity.

    Another Pokhara’s natural wonders that unfailingly lures visitors is the Seti Gandaki River. Flowing right through the city, the boisterous river runs completely underground at places. Amazingly, at certain points the river appears hardly two meters wide. But its depth is quite beyond imagination – over 20 meters! Mahendra Pul, a small bridge near the old Mission Hospital, provides a perfect view of the rivers’s dreadful rush and the deep gorge made by its powerful flow.

    Locally known as the Patale Chhango (Hell’s Fall). Devi’s Fall (also known as Devin’s and David’s) is a lovely waterfall lying about two km south-west of the Pokhara airport on the Siddhartha Highway. Legend has it that a trekker (Devin, David?) was washed away by the Pardi Khola and mysteriously disappeared down into an underground passage beneath the cliff.

    Another of nature’s wonders in Pokhara is the Mahendra Gupha. This large limestone cave is locally known as the House of Bats, an apt name for it. A two-hour walk to the north of Pokhara, it is best to bring your own torch to see the stalactites and stalagmites, as well as the local winged residents.

    Pokhara’s traditional bazaar is colorful and so are its ethnically diverse traders. Located about four km from Lakeside, the market’s original charm is alive and well. This area is strewn with shops selling commodities from edibles and cloth to cosmetics and gold is a pleasant and shady spot to stroll around.

    This temple with a spacious stone-paved courtyard has been built atop in a shady hillock. It is dedicated to Goddess Bhagwati, yet another manifestation of Shakti. The park-like grounds offers a fine picnic area, and on Saturdays and Tuesdays when devotees flock there to offer animal sacrifices.

    The Pokhara Museum, located between the bus stop and Mahendra Pul, reflects the ethnic mosaic of western Nepal. The lifestyles and history of ethnic groups such as the Gurung, Thakali and the Tharu are attractively displayed through models, photographs and arti- facts. One major attraction is a display highlighting the newly-discovered remains of an 8000-year-old settlement in Mustang.

    Also known as the Natural History Museum is another interesting visit in Pokhara. Run by the Annapuma Conservation Area Project (ACAP), the museum has an exceptional collection of butterflies, insects, birds and models of wildlife found in the area.It is located at Prithvi Narayan Campus east of the old bazaar.It is open daily except Saturdays and holidays from 9 am to 5 pm.

  • After breakfast we will drive you to Phedi, a small town which is one of the gateways to the central Annapurna region. Then, we will walk all the way uphill to the Deurali and if it is good weather we can see the awesome view of Annapurna range – Overnight at lodge

  • Early morning wake up to see the beautiful views of Mt. Machhapuchhre and Annapurna South shrouded by the mist. After breakfast you will start a classic Himalayan day walk through green, textured fields along wonderful village-lined trails. Leaving Deurali, we descend through a forested slope on partially stone-slab steps and cross a small bridge after Bheri Kharka. A short ascent brings us to Tolka (1750m), a large, scenic Gurung village. The grassy trail lined with ferns and sub-tropical trees descends after the village, and after crossing a few small streams and contouring around terraced hillsides we reach the hillside village of Landruk, painted in pastels and lined with fields ready to be planted. Landruk is a sprawling Gurung village, worth a bit of exploration through its narrow, slate alleys. Upon arrival at Landruk village you will admire the sunset views over the Annapurna peaks. Overnight at lodge

  • Today we begin a gentle walk through the extensive village of Landruk, endlessly interesting. Watch the local Gurung women weaving with their wooden looms, drying vegetables to make a spicy ‘achar’, sorting lentils for dal or involved in the morning’s washing at the village taps. Leaving Landruk, we have a a steep descent through open forest and paddock land on a partially stone trail. En route we cross the Modi Khola on a steel bridge to Khumi (1350m), from where we start our steep climb to Gandruk, following the stone steps. The slope is steep and it’s a long climb, but once up we’re rewarded with a large and bustling Gurung village contouring around the expanse of terraced hillside. Gandruk is perhaps the largest and most prosperous village in the region, with two interesting museums, local restaurants featuring their unique Gurung cuisine and many guest houses. We stay at a lovely garden guest house and will hike up a bit along the cobbled steps for sunset views in the evening. Annapurna South and Hiunchuli dominate the horizon while the views of Macchupucchre have changed so that it looks more like its translation, a fish tail. Annapurna I and Gangapurna are just visible in the distance if the weather is clear.

  • Today we will head for another beautiful village called Tadapani which means ‘far water’. Tadapani is perched on a plateau overlooking the peaks of the Annapurna region. To reach it we trek out of Gandruk for a few kilometers, cross the Kyunri Khola and climb to Baisi Kharka (kharka means ‘grazing field’ in Nepali, a commonly used word in the trekking world and baisi translates as ‘buffalo’) at 2470 meters. From here, we trek through a lovely, open forest filled with chattering langur monkeys and birds, ascending all the while; a wonderful hike. Finally at Tadapani, our highest sleeping point yet, we relax with a cup of chai in hand as the clouds swirl around us, revealing breathtaking views of Machhapuchhre soaring above us. A sublime sight; the snow peaks in front of the lodge are Annapurna South, Hiunchuli, Annapurna III, Machhapuchhre, Annapurna II, and Lamjung Himal. Overnight at lodge

  • It will be a steep and slightly longer day of trekking, starting with an ascent through dense, damp forests, the tree-tops swaying under the weight of the langur monkeys. There are several clearings in the forest, many of them with local tea-houses offering basic fare. Soon we reach Banthanti (2650m), a hamlet of small thatched dwellings, buffalos and tea-houses. Crossing the small stream at the end of the settlement, our steep climb begins. Again, there are many chautaras en route, so take advantage of these to drink some water, have a rest and admire the views. The trail can be slippery if it is muddy (in monsoon), so watch your step as you climb. Higher up, the trail crosses several small streams and by small huts until we finally reach the small settlement of Deurali (3050m), where Tibetans own the souvenir stalls. Finally, we have a well-deserved descent through a forest of birch, bamboo and rhododendron; about two kilometers more, contouring around green hillsides, and we reach Ghorepani, our destination for overnight stay at lodge

  • After an hour’s hike through a steep climb above Ghorepani, we reach Poon Hill to enjoy spectacular panorama.  Poon hill is a popular spot, where we’ll share the views with other trekkers. Make sure your camera has enough batteries, this is a once-in-a-lifetime Himalayan view dominated by Annapurna South (7219m), Annapurna I (8091m), Machhapuchhre (6993m), Hiunchuli (6441m) and Lamjung Himal (6931m) as well as the Ganesh Himal range, Dhaulagiri (8167m), Niligiri and Tukuche Peak (6920m). Don’t leave the viewpoint to quickly as the mountains emerge into the deep blues of the morning sky later in the morning. Perhaps bring a pastry from one of the bakeries with you and relax with this breathtaking sight.

    After spending couple of hours at Poon hill, we head back to Ghorepani for breakfast at lodge. After breakfast we trek back down steep steps through a forest of rhododendron crossing a stream to reach the settlement of Birethanthi. Now out of the forest, we walk through a bit of terraced village land where we stay at a lodge for the night.

  • Today it will be our last day of trekking, and another steep descent down slate steps to Naya Pul with beautiful vistas through the entire trail. Continuing down the contouring stone steps, we pass some other villages before finally reaching Naya Pul (‘new bridge’ in Nepali), where we will catch our transport and drive back to Pokhara. Overnight in hotel

  • After breakfast we will drive to Chitwan National Park. En route we will spend a few hours rafting at Trisuli River. Then, we will continue our overland journey to the park. Upon arrival the resort representative will meet you and transfer to the resort/hotel. In the lobby you will be offered complimentary refreshment drink and the operation manager will brief you about the package program and facilities. Overnight in resort

    Small Groups

    Small groups provide a more intimate atmosphere allowing you to get to know your Sherpa guide/Tour Guide better and to develop lifelong friendships. Therefore, the maximum group size for this trek is 16 people. The minimum is 2 people.

    Weather Information

    The main tour season in Nepal begins from early October to mid-May. During this period temperatures at most altitudes are generally comfortable for walking. Daytime temperatures will vary from 15ºC to 35ºC in the Kathmandu Valley to around 10ºC above higher altitudes. Different seasons offer different advantages for trekking.

    Post Monsoon/autumn: Mid-September to November
    This is the main trekking season in Nepal. While trekking in mountains weather will be sunny and mild with clear mountain views. Nights will be colder with temperatures dropping as low as to minus 10ºC at the highest altitudes.

    Winter: December to end February
    Even it is cooler conditions this is an ideal time to trek in Nepal. Skies are usually very clear especially in December and the mountain views are at their best. Nights will be very cold with temperatures down to negative 12ºC to negative 20ºC at the highest altitudes but days are pleasant and sunny. The trails are also much less busy at this time of year

    Pre-monsoon/spring: March to May
    Both day and night temperatures will be warmer in general but cloudiness will be occurred up in the afternoons. Seasonal flowers bloom in this season and this is one of the reasons people chose to trek in spring.

    Flora in the Annapurna region

    The southern subtropical lowlands are enriched with lush subtropical forests consisting of chirpine and alder and in the northern highlands temperate forests of oaks, rhododendron, fir, and blue pine. The wet regions yield a variety of bamboo species. The higher altitude further North give rise to forests of birch, blue pine and juniper trees, which are replaced by juniper and rhododendron in the far North. In the semi-desert rain shadow region, behind the Himalayas, bushes of caragana and juniper species are found.

    Fauna in the Annapurna region

    This region is rich with several species of wildlife. There are around four hundred and seventy-four species of birds, and around a hundred species of mammals. The region serves as an excellent habitat for rare and endangered mammals like the snow leopard, musk deer, blue sheep, red panda and many of Nepal’s brilliantly plumaged pheasants

    Possible views of Mountains during the trek

    Annapurna (8091m) Nilgiri(6940m), Tilicho peak(7134m)   Dhulagiri (8167m),Manaslu (8156m), Lamjung Himal (6983m),Machhapuchhare(6993m), Tukuche peak (6920m),


    We strongly recommend the use of a neck wallet or money belt while travelling for the safe keeping of your passport, air tickets, cash and other valuable items. Leave your valuable jewelry at home – you don’t need it while travelling. Many of hotels in Nepal have safety deposit boxes, which is the most secure way of storing your valuables. A lock is recommended for securing your luggage

    Different ethnic communities in the Region

    • The Gurungs form the largest group in the Annapurna region. They come from Tibeto – Burman stock. Some Gurungs follow Buddhism and others Hinduism. They dwell the higher northern slopes of the Annapurna, Lamjung,Chuli and hills around Ganesh Himal. A large number of Gurung youths serve in the British and Indian armies. The low part of the Annapurna region is largely populated by Chettris and Bahuns (Brahmins). The Magars inhabit the lower trail between Baglung and Dana. They live high on the steep ridges along the tributaries of the Kali Gandaki.
    • Another ethnic group of this region is the Thakalis. Known throughout the country as accomplished hoteliers and skilled traders, they are noted for their aggressive trading spirit. The Jomsom trek passes through Thak Khola, the Thakali homeland.
    • In the valley of the Muktinath live the Baragaun Bhotiya. Their lifestyle is similar to that of the Tibetans. Another group of people who share a close affinity to the Tibetans are the Lopa people of Mustang, north of Kagbeni. Some of them practice the ancient pre-Buddhist religion of Bon which is infused with animistic and shamanic belief and ritual. The people living in the upper Marshyandi valley are generally known as Mananges. The Nyeshang area, under which fall the villages of Manang, Braga and Ngawal. The people are of Tibetan origin. But their language Nyeshang is not a Tibetan dialect. This area is popularly known by the name of its largest village Manang.

    Jungle Activities

    The Elephant Safari
    This is an excellent way to see the jungle and the animals. You ride on top of the elephant on a square wooden box built to  t   people, one in each corner. During the safari you will approach closer to view some of the world’s rarest animals such the Great one-horned rhinos, sloth bears, deer, etc. If you are lucky, you will and an elusive tiger in the bushes. You will hear the sounds of insects and birds piercing the air as you ride through open Savanahs and grass lands. The trip will last for about one and a half hours.

    Elephant Breeding Centre 
    This is the first elephant breeding center in Asia and is situated only one and half km from the hotel. Our nature guide will take you there to show how the baby elephants socialize with their parents, how the elephant meals are prepared and how they eat. He will explain the nature and habits of the elephant. The center is government owned and its purpose is to raise the young elephant to secure a viable population.

    Nature Walk 
    With our experienced naturalists you will walk through more specialized habitats. You will become more aware of your surroundings .You will observe a bird nest on the high branch where a mother bird is feeding her young; or a song-bird hopping from limb to limb, pausing to the air with his clear, melodious calls; or a woodpecker busily searching for insects in the bark crevices.
    A small tree lizard so similar the color of the wood seems to disappear. This protective camouflage helps conceal the lizard from both its prey and the hungry predators that seek it for food. If you are lucky, you may catch a glimpse of a squirrel scampering through the branches.

    While making your nature walk, your observations will not be limited to trees and insects. The passage of wildlife through an area leaves signs for all to see. Each species of animal has its own distinct footprint, and by learning to identify them, you will be able to tell which animals have walked where you are walking. When the deer, wild boar, leopard and other animals come to drink, their tracks are recorded in the moist soil around the water’s edge. Spending some time in the outdoors on a nature walk you may be surprised at the variety of living things you will encounter.

    Canoe Trip 
    Canoeing at River Rapti is truly a wonderful experience. While floating down the tranquil river your rafting guide will show you some crocodiles basking at the riverbank, various birds along the shore and wildlife species that frequently come to drink into the river. Canoeing trip lasts around 45 minutes and you will be dropped at put off point to continue other jungle activities.

    Bird Watching 
    The park is a habitat for over  ¬  residential and migratory birds. Our bird specialist guide will help you to view and identify them. Most of them are rare species such as the great pied Hornbill, Bengal Floricon, Peregrine Falcon, lesser adjutant and others like storks. Cormorants, egrets, storks, cranes, jacanas, minivets, ibis, woodpeckers, hawks, osprey, falcons, kestrel, hornbills, floricans, kites, cuckoos, kingfishers, swallows, orioles, babblers are common in sight. A bird watching trip with our the nature guide will be a memorable experience

    Culture Dance (Stick Dance) 
    Chitwan is the lowland region of Nepal where many ethnic groups live in harmony. Here, we can encounter their unique culture and traditional customs. Folk dances and musical traditions vary among Nepal’s many ethnic groups. During Safari trip to Chitwan different types of local cultural dances are performed by men and women accompanied with drums and guitars in the late evening in the courtyard of the hotel. It would be a fun-filled evening and the Tharu cultural dance program lasts for around 45 minutes.

    Warnings and Dangers

    Malaria, dengue and kalaazaar:
    Mosquito and sand-fly borne diseases that are really unpleasant. Take care to be dressed properly and oiled for the occasion.

    There are two bear types in Chitwan, of which the sloth bear is by far the most bad-tempered and dangerous animal in Chitwan. The sloth bear might be encountered while hiking in the jungle, and orderly retreat is the only way out – the bear will not give way and if attacking will seek to claw its perceived opponent.

    As compared to the tiger, the other cats are nothing in terms of danger potential. A tiger, if surprisingly encountered or in a tight corner would be very deadly. Another aspect with tigers is that they may be man-eaters, actually stalking people as potential prey. Guides will know. Don’t go at the jungle’s edge in tiger land during Dusk/Dawn/Darkness.

    The gharial will seek to escape after a mock attack, the mugger crocodile may chance to take a bite out of you if threatened. The bigger ones may be stalkers as well, but the muggers are now few and far between.

    There are a number of venomous snakes in Chitwan, some of them actually thrive nearby humans where there are rats. The main dangerous species are cobras and kraits, but also certain vipers are found. The reticulated python may bite in self-defense if surprised or threatened, but not really feast upon you directly. The good news is that snakes are largely hiding during the tourist season due to the cold but in monsoon time they come out from the hides.

    Bright Clothing:
    You should always avoid wearing bright clothing while visiting Chitwan and Bardia National Parks. Some animals like rhinos are agitated by the bright colours. So, for personal safety, it is best to avoid bright clothing.


    Before joining a tour, we recommend you to take out a travel insurance which should cover cancellation, medical expenses, helicopter evacuation and emergency repatriation. Please send us the following details such as your full name, policy number and the insurance company’s 24 hour emergency contact number prior to departure. We also strongly recommend that your policy must cover personal liability, flight/trip cancellation, curtailment and loss of luggage and personal effects.


    We strongly recommend the use of a neck wallet or money belt while travelling for the safe keeping of your passport, air tickets, cash and other valuable items. Leave your valuable jewelry at home – you don’t need it while travelling. Many of hotels in Nepal have safety deposit boxes, which is the most secure way of storing your valuables. A lock is recommended for securing your luggage

    Rescue/ Evacuations

    Though we hope for the best trip, you sometimes might be in need of rescue or evacuation in case of a serious sickness or a personal prolonged health issue. During such emergency you will be rescued by a helicopter. You are entirely liable for all the expenses incurred in evacuation services. We request you to make sure when you purchase insurance from your country that your policy must cover these expenses or you should remain prepared to pay or sign on Helicopter Evacuation Form before you get on the Helicopter.

    Overland Transportation Delay or Halt

    If the main highway between Kathmandu Pokhara & Chitwan areas is blocked by a landslide or any natural calamity during the transfer, in such a situation the extra cost for food and accommodation has to be borne by the clients.
