Annapurna Combination Rafting-Trekking-Safari (Minimum 04 Pax Needed).

The best of three worlds: rivers, mountains and jungles.

This trip allows you to experience the best combination of wildlife and adventure.

The trip begins with thrilling white water rafting in Trishulii River, one of the most popular and demanding rafting rivers in Nepal suitable for all kinds of paddlers. We board a raft and set off on a leisurely floating trip down the Trisuli.

In order to witness the beauty of some of the highest peaks of the world we trek around the Annapurna Region, a majestic section of the Himalayas in Nepal. This trek not only offers the breathetaking view of the mountains but also allows you to know about the Gurung and Magar community living in Annapurna region while we walk through the colorful rhododendron forests.

After having good time in the mountains we arrive at a rusty jungle lodge where we will be spending couple of days. This stay will be more exciting as you will be experiencing wildlife closely. Elephant ride in the Chitwan National Parks offers you the best possible way to witness some of the animals such as one horned rhinoceros, dears, following with jeep jungle safari which explores the jungle even more allowing you to witness the elusive Royal Bengal tiger and numbers of exotic tropical birds.

After fantastic time in the River, Mountain and Jungle we return back to Kathmandu and departure with wonderful memories.

"This Trekking offers panoramic view of mountains within a short span of time frame. It takes couple of days from Pokhara to reach Ghorepani and Ghandruk, which is the native homeland of world famous Gurkha Soldiers as well as known for the great views including the both famous mountains Mt. Annapurna and Mt. Dhaulagiri as well as other prominent snow-capped peaks in the Western Development Region of Nepal. For a panoramic view of northern mountains, Poonhill (3,210m. which is about an hour's climb away from Ghorepani Pass above Ghorepani Village also offers best view of Mt. Dhaulagiri, Tukchey Peak in the northwest and Mt. Annapurna and Mt. Nilgiri in the northeast. The Punhill also offers far-sighted aerial view of Kaligandaking Valley (former main trading route between Nepal and Tibet via Mustang) which is considered as world's deepest gorge between Mt. Dhaulagiri and Mt. Annapurna range and one of the popular trekking spots in Nepal."
