This tour offers you boundless Nepal experience in the limited time of your vacation. This trip is uniquely designed to provide the best feeling of natural beauty, village life, and amazing terraces with seasonal crops, plus offers magnificent mountain views. It is mixture of adventures of White Water Rafting, Wild Life Excursions, World Heritage Site and short trekking in Dhampus Poon Hill.

The initial day of the tour, our guide leads you from your hotel to the White Water Rafting spot Charaudi on the Prithivi Highway - this is way to Chitawan National Park and Pokhara.  The name of Trishuli River is after a legend that says, in the high Himalaya at Gosainkund the God Shiva drove his trident into the ground to create three springs, the source of the river, and hence its name Trisuli. It is very popular for Rafting and Kayaking. The right side to the river is relatively wild and you have chance to see some wildlife, a profusion of colorful bird, including eagles and vultures during the Rafting/ Kayaking. The 1 night 2 days on the Trishuli River represents the ideal Rafting trip: just the right length of time, exhilarating rapids, but not too difficult, and easily accessible from Kathmandu.

The second Part of the Tour heads for Chitwan Jungle Safari Tour, and begins from 4/5 hours scenic drive from Kathmandu to lowland Chitwan by tourist bus or private car for wildlife discovery. The major Highlights of this park are 500 Asian one-horned rhinoceros and some hundred nocturnal Royal Bengal tigers. In the park you will discover a lost world of towering trees and twisting vines, of pre-historic rhino and lumbering elephants, crocodile, python and deer; brilliantly colored birds and if you are fortunate - the superb Royal Bengal Tiger. The other animals like rhesus monkey, grey Langur, deer, leopards and wild cats etc share this home with each other. In addition, another most important factor of Wildlife Tour in Chitwan is the colorful Tharu Culture, their way of living, culture and tradition and their heart touching Tharu Dance. Not only that, here you are offered a chance at many activities like Jungle Safari on elephant back, jungle walk, canoe ride, jeep drive etc.

In the third part of our “Nepal Mother House Treks” Guide leads you to the beautiful touristic city Pokhara for the Dhampus Poon Hill Trek, which has an alternative name as Dhampus Ghorepani Trip.  This trekking is a comparatively easy and short walk through Magar and Gurung community villages (Hile, Ghorepani, Tadapani, Ghandruk, Landruk, Tolkha, Dhampus etc.) and rhododendron forests beneath the majestic Himalaya.  The highest point of this trip is Poon Hill an elevation of 3,210m with super view of mountain.
