From the trek we continue our venture by raft down the beautiful Seti River. Again, this is an easy rafting trip, which is safe and fun for first-time rafters and children. We enjoy the night camping in nature.
Finally, we reach the southern plains in Nepal, the Terai, where a true jungle adventure awaits. We spend a whole day with elephants and another full day inside the jungle. Join the elephant herd as they walk through the forest and cool down in the river and help the mahouts prepare their fodder. Tiger Tops offers a unique and ethical elephant experience, where activities are based on the elephants’ needs.
Inside Chitwan National Park, we explore nature in the comfort and convenience of one of our classic vintage Land Rovers and from our quiet non-motorized wooden boats.
After all the adventures it’s time to head back to the city in time to reach your international flight.
When you arrive at Tribhuvan International Airport, Kathmandu, our staff will greet you and assist your transfer to Dwarikas Hotel - an exquisite 5 star oasis in the heart of the bustling city.
During the afternoon we are happy to arrange guided tours for those wanting to wander the city and discover the enthralling sights of the capital.
After a sumptuous breakfast, we take a 25-minute morning flight to Pokhara. On a clear day you can watch the Annapurna Ranges unfold before you from the aeroplane.
We transfer by road with guides and porters to our trek start point. We begin the trek gently, with a fairly short hike into the valley. The trail passes through small hamlets, terraced rice fields and forests with spectacular views of the surrounding valley. We end the day in Birethanti, where we may enjoy the lodge's happy hour before dinner.
Today, we embark on a two day river rafting adventure on the Seti River. The Seti River is a grade III river, offering a gentle ride with some white water rapids and stunning scenery. We raft for 3-4 hours a day and overnight at a set camp by the river.
From the rafting pick-up point it’s only a two hour drive to our next destination, Tiger Tops Tharu Lodge (a sister company of Mountain Travel Nepal). We recommend a leisurely day by the pool followed by a late afternoon stroll to the Narayani River with our resident elephants for sun downers.
For the next couple of days enjoy all the safari and elephant activities on offer at the lodge. This includes spending a full day with the elephants, immersed in their daily routines and walking alongside them in the jungle.
Next day prepare for a river safari on the Narayani River. Keep your eyes peeled for a variety of birdlife and wildlife. Top of the list is the endangered fish-eating Gharial crocodile and its more sinister relative, the Marsh-Mugger.
Later in the afternoon meet with our naturalist for a jeep safari in the national park to get a taste of the jungle. During the safari you will encounter wildlife such as different species deer, birds, monkeys, and the endangered one-horned rhinoceros, and hopefully the elusive Royal Bengal Tiger.
