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

The best of three worlds: mountains, rivers, and jungles. For an introduction to mountain trekking, we walk scenic route in the Annapurna foothills near Pokhara and circle up through cool rhododendron forests and lovely Gurung villages with breathtaking views of Mt. Annapurna , Dhaulagiri and Machhapuchhare (Fishtail).

Returning from wonderful trip in the mountains, we board a raft and set off on a leisurely floating trip down the Seti river which flows into the heart of the Chitwan National Park.

We arrive at a rustic jungle lodge and camp where we will spend a couple of days searching for game on the back of an elephant, by dugout canoe, by jeep and on foot into the deep Terai jungle. You may see a one-horned rhinoceros, leopards, varieties of deer, the elusive Royal Bengal tiger, and any number of exotic tropical birds.

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, Punhill (3193m. 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.
