Poon Hill Trek & Jungle Safari

Combine the best of the Himalayas with the rich nature of Nepal with this amazing package. With mind-blowing views of snow-capped mountains, glaciers, tigers, rhinos and elephants, this may be the holiday you have always wished for.

 

 

 

After 5 days of physical adventure in the Himalayas, you can relax in Nepal's tropical weather on your 3-day jungle safari. The highlights include riding an elephant, close-up views of the one-horned Asian rhinos of Nepal, and if you're lucky you may even see a Royal Bengali Tiger. Later you will descend the great Rapti River in a hand dug-out wooden canoe while in awe of the crocodiles, aquatic wildlife, and birds. Top it all off with a visit to the elephant-breeding and conservation centre and learn about the efforts to stop poaching.

 

Trekking

The Annapurna Poon Hill Trek is very popular due to its low altitude (3200m) and abundant captivating views of the Himalayan mountain ranges. The highlight is an early morning pilgrimage to Poon Hill for a spectacular sunrise over the Himalayas. The views stretch as far as the eye can see-north towards Tibet, west towards the Dhaulagiri Himal and east towards the Annapurna Himal.

The small mountain villages have friendly inhabitants and provide a wealth of impressive accommodations in their local teahouses. These teahouses also serve food and refreshments to passing trekkers during the day.

 

Considered to be the best introduction to trekking, this trail offers spectacular views after only two days of trekking. With its diverse terrain and rich local culture, this trek provides a splendid glimpse into the serene and secluded world of the Himalayas. This trek is suitable for most people; it's a great family trek and is highly recommended as a one week getaway.

 

Jungle Safari

Relax in the tropical warmth of southern Nepal on this 3-day jungle safari in the Royal Chitwan National Park, a UNESCO Natural Heritage Site. On the village tour you'll explore the local community and see first hand the agricultural and traditional way of life. You'll ride on an elephant as you traverse through the jungle and you will have first-rate looks at the Asian one-horned rhinoceros. If the stars line up correctly the stealthy Royal Bengali Tiger, which roam in the dense forests of the park, just might appear in your view.

 

Elephant in water

 

Continuing on foot, you will experience a lost world of towering trees and twisting vines, deer, brilliantly colored birds, and other jungle dwellers such as the rhesus monkey and grey langur. In wooden canoes, hand-made from old trees, you'll travel downriver and see many crocodiles on the banks of the Rapti River. On the last morning, you will visit elephant families at the Conservation and Breeding Centre and learn about the history of conservation in this area and the global challenges that are being faced.

"Our trek with Experience the Himialayas was superb and j would highly recommend the company to anyone who is interested in successfully reaching Everest Base Base whilst being educated along the way. We were looked after impeccable by the team and our Head Guide Tanka was amazing. The three acclimatisation days I believe helped us massively to all reach Base Camp successfully without any altitude issues. The accommodation is basic, but if you read any information for any trek, this is the deal and to be expected, but I would say that most of the tea houses were better then I had hoped.\r\nWith experience the Himalayas I felt 100% safe, comfortable and looked after at all times. Alongside what is a once in a lifetime experience, the whole trek was amazing.\r\n5stars. Thank you."

"We have had a brilliant time doing the Everest Base Camp trip!! Our guides Tanka and Kharma were fantastic - they were very kind, knowledgeable and kept us safe at all times.\r\n\r\nThe three acclimatization days were important and we are glad that we choose this company over some of the others that just offer two. all of us made it to Base Camp which was great.\r\n\r\nThe teahouses were basic but comfortable, and the food was tasty. Really impressed with the trip and would recommend Experience the Himalayas to others. "

This was our second visit to Nepal within two years and like the first we have been wonderfully looked after by Bijay and his team. Our guide Raj and our porter Kamil have given us 5 star care and we can highly recommend them both. We hope to return to Nepal in the future and will use Experience the Himalayas again.
