This package gives you exposure to Nepal's great diverse landscapes. First you will start by embarking on Nepal's most famous trek: Annapurna Base Camp Trek.  Then, we will take you down to Chitwan to see the jungle-like landscape, where we see completely different cultures than we did in the north.  We start our Annapurna Base Camp Trek  with a drive from Kathmandu to Pokhara and then another hour to Nayapul.  Annapurna Base Camp lies in the Western foothills of Himalayas.  It is one of the most glorious treks listed in the world. The appropriate time for Annapurna Base Camp trek is from September to November and from March to May. During the spring, the rhododendrons are blooming and during the fall, the skies are quite clear.  When you set your vacation for Annapurna Base Camp you truly feel the customs and traditions of the native people. So, it will be fruitful to spend some time on the way to experience their hospitality. Another incredible thing about Annapurna Base Camp is the varieties of rare animal species along with the native plant species. In one sentence Annapurna Base Camp is a dream land and once you visit there your dreams come true. Annapurna Base Camp is that beauty which cannot be described through words and is lying in the part of nature.  From the final village, the Chomrong, people can view the twin peaks of Macchapuchre which resembles a fishtail.

We then move onto Chitwan National Park for day.  We experience an elephant ride, and even have the opportunity to take a canoe ride in the river, surrounded by magnificent flora and fauna of the region.  It is an incredible experience that you will never forget. 

The highlight of the Annapurna Base Camp Safari is visiting the heavenly gigantic Annapurna, Dhaulagiri and Kali Gandaki from Poon Hill, as well as experience of different landscapes. The mixture of nice looking community, pastureland at Ghaundrug, hot spring. Annapurna Base Camp Trek with Chitwan National Park will give you lifelong memories full of experiences unlike any other.
