Nepal is endowed with rich and varied biodiversity throughout the country. Its short distance variance in weather and bio-geography gives a range from lush moist forests and sparse alpine deserts to luxurious grasslands and tall trees in lowland Terai of southern Nepal. The Chitwan Valley consists of tropical and subtropical forests. Chitwan National Park is a World Heritage Site because of its typical natural, cultural and landscape characteristics. The endangered fauna found in the park are: One-horned rhinoceros, Royal Bengal tiger and Wild elephant etc. Chitwan is also a popular destination for an amazing Jungle safari which includes elephant back-ride, canoe ride, village tour, bird watching and jungle walk. The livelihood of the local Tharu community is yet another attraction of Chitwan. Our Jungle Safari tour includes a trip of the world famous monuments of Kathmandu with an extended trip further to Pokhara.
Pokhara is a visitor’s paradise. The panoramic view of the majestic Himalayas such as Mt. Fishtail, Mt. Annapurna and Mt. Dhaulagiri is truly awesome. The Sunrise view from Sarangkot gives a lifetime memory. Apart from this, there are many interesting points to see like Fewa/Phewa Lake, Devi’s fall, World Peace Pagoda, Caves and sacred temples. Finally, the tour concludes with a dinner in typical Nepalese way and live cultural show. Folk music and dancing have always been an integral part of Nepalese culture and tradition. Nepal though a small country in size, it has over 100 ethnic groups having their own distinct traditions of music, dancing, dressing, language and culture. They perform their cultural practices in different festivals and occasions meaning to ancient myths. The traditional and authentic Nepalese food is daal-bhaat, curry, pickle, vegetables and mutton or chicken.
