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.

That was the best adventure ever! Even I got sick at the beggining of the hike both guides were very helpful so we all could continue our trip. Without their help that could've end up way different! It's difficult to put it in words but Kumar, Tanka and all of the porters are great people to travel with. Tanka have a wide knowledge about everything you see on your way and Kumar is the best cook you can probably find in Nepal. I hope I'll have another chance to travel with them! Thank you all for an amazing experience! :)

I loved every moments of the trip. Our guide Tanks was an amazing, fun, very knowledge person. He knows a lot about the mountains and safety. We were all in good hands and safe. I highly recommend this company to everyone who wish to experience the Himalayas. The Tea Houses were very nice and we always felt so welcomed such as family.

Really glad that we chose to go with experience the Himalayas. Everything was a very well organised from the start to the finish. They have an extra acclimatization day worked into their itinerary which many other companies don't, something which I benefitted from greatly as I got sick and was able to recover during one of the rest days. Our guide Tanka was absolutely amazing. From what we observed he seem to do a lot more for us than others guides that we saw. His knowledge was second to none and he appeared to know all the best places to stay making sure we got the best rooms where possible. Overall the trip of a lifetime. We're already looking at which trip to do next and would book through experience the Himalayas again in a heartbeat.
