Our Annapurna Trek and Jungle Safari starts with a marvelous drive from Kathmandu to Pokhara.  Pokhara is a beautiful city situated near Phewa Lake, with a HImalaya mountain backdrop.  This Annapurna Trek is a short route into the foothills of the Annapurna Mountains.  This trek is all about admiring the valuable gift of nature, from picturesque terraced hillsides to blooming rhododendrons to snow-clad peaks.  The natural beauty is wonderful is this region. 

Our Annapurna Trek and Jungle Safari is a perfect mix of adventurous and tranquil.  We feel the cool winds, subtropical climate, fresh air from the forests, and can feel the cold drops of water from the waterfalls. Nayapul is the place from where begin our trekking journey through forests and up hills. This walking will not be boring as you can take pleasure of spectacular views on the way.  Eventually, we reach to the Poon Hill viewpoint (3210m) and are absolutely stunned by the massive peaks reaching up into the sky.  In the morning, when the rays of sun little by little falls upon the snow capped summits, that view is beyond the description.There are plenty of photo opportunities so you can make these memories last forever.

 The Annapurna Trek and Jungle Safari will be paramount for those people who love nature. Moreover you will feel elated when you are warmly welcomed by the people of different ethnic groups like Gurung and Magar.  This is the right place to experience the cultural diversity that is so prevalent in Nepal.  Annapurna Trek and Jungle Safari is an interesting trek and it is even extra beautiful during spring or during the months of October and November when the weather is near perfect and the skies are clearer. After finishing the trek, we drive back to Pokhara and then towards Kathmandu.  For those who want to see what the Annapurna region has to offer, but does not have the time or energy for the Annapurna Base Camp Trek or Annapurna Circuit Trek, our Annapurna Trek and Jungle Safari is the ultimate choice for you.  You'll have the combination of mountains and jungle, along with the various cultural fascinations of each.

This is a unique package as it includes and provides the mixture between Annapurna and Jungle Safari. Side by side visitors can enjoy the dazzling beauty of Annapurna and an opportunity of sightseeing different wild animals with Flora and Fauna. After the trek, we head down to Chitwan for a day to ride an elephant, take a canoe ride, or take part in another activity that interests you.
