Nepal is a land of topographical diversities crossed by high mountains and turbulent rivers with a mosaic of diverse ethnic groups with their own distinct cultures. Kathmandu, the capital city of Nepal, is one of the world’s oldest cities. Here one can find distinctive pagoda-roofed temples, stone sculptures, old monasteries and historic monuments. The Kathmandu valley was rewarded the status of “World Heritage Site” by UNESCO in year 1979. This trip is a multi adventure trip suitable for those who love adventure. This trip is composed of Trekking, Sightseeing, Mountain Biking, Paragliding, Chitwan Safari and the exhilarating Mountain Flight over the Himalayas.

Trekking will take you through a wonderful variety of landscape and culture, from the subtropical lower Marsyangdi valley where Gurung and Thakali dominate to the northern arid Buddhist areas. Along the Marsyangdi River, on easy trails and suspension bridges, through rice terraces and forests, we will slowly gain altitude and acclimatize well. After Pisang we will get stunning extremely up-close views of snowy and glaciated high peaks including Annapurnas II, III and IV. This remote area lies in a rain shadow formed by the Annapurnas and the landscape supports little in the way of forest apart from pine, juniper and scrub rhododendron. Huge glacial moraines abound, etched deeply by wind erosion into fantastic pillars. The Thorong La (5415 m) wilderness is one of the highlights of this trek. After the pass, we reach Muktinath and our short and splendid Muktinath to Maldhunga mountain biking trip packs nature, culture, adventure, and relaxation into one. We then put in our Raft from Maldhunga in one of the holiest river of Nepal, Kali Gandaki River and then put out at Mirmi. At Pokhara one more adventure, Paragliding awaits you; where you can get bird eye view of Fewa Lake, Pokhara City and amazing mountain views. Our adventure doesn’t end here; we then prolong our adventure for Chitwan Safari. Last but not the least; we do one of the world’s elite tour to encounter close panoramic view of the Himalayas.

An early departure from the City of Glory, we drive west out of the Kathmandu Valley and along the Trisuli Valley until Besisahar.

Day 3: Drive to Chame in 6-7 hours.
We drive following the Marsyangdi Khola, through several picturesque farming villages, beautiful tumbling waterfalls until we reach Chame.

Day 4: Trek to Pisang in 7 hours.
Away from Chame the scenery changes dramatically. To Bhrating the trail is relatively easy and similar to previous days as we travel through apple orchards. Thereafter, it follows a steep narrow valley through a dense forest. At Dhikur Pokhari there are splendid views of Pisang peak (6,091m) and Annapurna lV. Emerging from the forest immediately Paungda Danda imposingly appears for the first time, a 1,500m black rock that rises from the riverbed below, we cross the river for the final time today to reach Pisang. This fascinating village at 3,200m sits at the base of Annapurna ll and lV. The Tibetan-style flat roofs indicate we are now in the rain shadow of the Annapurna range. In the evening we will make our way to Upper Pisang to join the monks in evening prayers.

Day 5: Trek to Manang in 5 hours.
Today leads with a long but gentle ascent over a low pass with stunning views of the surrounding peaks. We descend into the valley below Pisang Peak to Humde, where there is an airport, a magnificent Mani stone wall and spectacular views of Pisang Peak and Annapurna lll (7,555m). Continuing up the valley the wilderness steps in as we walk along wide and dusty trails all the way to Manang. Our destination is a large Tibetan village, with numerous stupas and monasteries, surrounded by mountains, to the north east are the four Chulu peaks (ranging between 6,038m and 6,854m)and Ganggapurna (7,454m)in the south west, with Ganggapurna Lake immediately below. Sunset and sunrise over these great peaks are truly stunning creating one of the most beautiful dawn and dusk views in Nepal.

Day 6: Acclimatizing in Manang (4 hours).
In preparation of crossing Thorung La pass today is an acclimatization day, which allows us to adjust to the higher altitude. You are free to explore Manang’s dry and fascinating area. There are many options: climb to Chhongar viewpoint to enjoy the views of the Annapurna and Chulu peaks, the route passes the glacier Ganggapurna Lake; visit the two monasteries, one of which is over 600 years old; or simply relax in a warm guesthouse whilst snacking on freshly baked cake and soak up the nearby snow capped scenery. It is important to take some rest today for the coming days.

Day 7: Manang – Yak Kharka in 4 hours.
Leaving behind Marsyangdi Valley our day begins with a steep uphill climb through alpine woodlands with juniper bushes for 1½ hours; the trail takes us to Tengi (3,620m) and Gunsang (3,930m). Thereafter, to reach Yak Kharka, it is an easy walk along gentle undulating dry trails supporting thinly scattered juniper shrubs, while in striking contrast there are magnificent views of Annapurna III and Ganggapurna. En route we may encounter blue sheep but for definite there are herds of yaks. Close up views of Tilicho peak(7,134m) and Ganggapurna can be found by climbing up the brown grassy hill from the village.

Day 8: Yak Kharka – Thorung Phedi in 4 hours.
The steep ascent out of Yak Kharka, on a wide trail, leads us to Ledar. Crossing the Kone Khola we continue to climb along its eastern bank. Shortly before Thorung Phedi we traverse a scree slope before making our way into the village, which is situated at the foot of Thorung La. In the afternoon there is an optional hike to high camp where we will see a panoramic view of the surrounding Annapurna peaks including Chulu West (6,419m) and Yakwakang(6,482m).
Trek over Thorung La Pass (5416m) Trek to Muktinath in 8 hours.
Today is the highlight of the trek, the day we have been working towards. It is a long and challenging day but immensely rewarding. Our morning begins in the dark, walking along thin trails that hug the snow mountains that have been climbed by local herders for centuries. As the sun starts to rise the white mountains surrounding us seem to be glowing. This amazing sight carries us up the steep ascent that can take around 4 hours. The gradient eases as we approach the summit but the altitude makes it challenging. Upon reaching the top we are greeted by fluttering prayer flags in abundance and rewarded with a stunning view of prestigious summits rising above 6,000m; to the west is the great Kali Gandaki Valley and in the north is the Yakwakang. The long descent towards Muktinath is gentle at the beginning becoming steeper the further we descend, as we near Muktinath the descent returns to a gentle gradient of grassy slopes. Before reaching Muktinath the Dhaulagiri range comes into sight with stunning views of Dhaulagiri (8,167m) the 7th highest mountain in the world and Nilgiri (6,940m).

Many Buddhist and Hindu pilgrims travel to Muktinath solely to visit the famous and sacred temple, which lies directly above the village.

Day 9: Trek over Thorung La Pass (5416m) Trek to Muktinath in 8 hours.

Day 10: Mountain Biking from Muktinath to Tukuche
Today is our first day for Mountain Biking and most of the track is downhill and the route is composed of Jeep Trail and Single Track. Enroute we pass through landscape of bare, eroded hills with snow capped mountains in the background. We follow the old trading route of Mustang and Tibet caravan that passes above Kagbeni, a medieval village that lies next to the massive Kali Gandaki Khola, as we continue to Jomsom. After spending some time at Jomsom, we ride through the Kali Gandaki Valley, a major trade route and through a picturesque village Marpha before reaching Tukuche. Tukuche is an ancient Thakali tribe settlement and lies right beneath the Tukuche peak and Dhaulagiri, with amazing views of Mt. Nilgiri and icefalls of Dhaulagiri’s east face.

Day 11: Bike from Tukuche to Tatopani
We begin riding Jeep Track from Tukuche to Tatopani through number of picturesque villages, apple and orange orchards, with spectacular views of Dhaulagiri and Nilgiri and some fantastic downhill sections. On reaching Tatopani, there is time to relax and soak in the hot springs.

Day 12: Mountain Biking from Tatopani to Maldhunga
After a relaxing time at Tatopani, we ride for about 1 ½ hours on jeep tracks to reach Beni, a small but vibrant market town and then about 1 ½ hours to reach Maldhunga.

Day 13, 14 & 15: Kali Gandaki River Rafting
The Kaligandaki, named after the goddess Kali and probably the best Medium length white water journey, rises in Mustang, close to the Tibet border. As it tumbles between the Dhaulagiri and Annapurna range, it creates the World’s deepest river gorge. With exciting white water rapids, spectacular mountain views, traditional villages, endless suspension bridges, waterfalls, pristine jungle rich in wildlife, deep gorges, cultural temples and beautiful remote white sandy beaches for camp, we consider this to be the best all round river adventure in Nepal.

After rafting, we will drive back to Pokhara (5 hours)

Day 16: Paragliding and free day
After having breakfast, we will drive to Sarankot and do tandem flight over Fewa Lake and Pokhara City for around 1 hour. Depending upon weather, you can get spectacular mountain views.

Day 17 & 18: Chitwan Safari 4 ½ hours.
Today we make our way to the World Heritage Site of Chitwan National Park, which is located in Inner Terai (the subtropical lowlands) of southern central Nepal. The park covers an area of 932km2 and lies between two river valleys. It is particularly rich in flora and fauna. Chitwan is home to many rare wild animals including the famous Royal Bengal Tiger, the endangered one-horned rhinoceros, genetic dolphin and endangered gharial, and more than 400 different species of birds.
Our stay in the heart of the park allows us to absorb all it has to offer as we become one with nature. Hearing the jungle calls of all within will meet your expectations of a subtropical national park. Activities during our stay include: guided jungle walk; local village tour; a visit to an elephant breeding center; a canoe ride; elephant back safari; elephant bathing; bird watching; and an evening of cultural dance. You can participate in all of these activities or a select few. In the evenings there is time to relax by the riverside to watch the sun set on the horizon.

Day 19: Drive back to Kathmandu 6 hours.
An optional early morning bird watching tour completes our Chitwan adventure. We then take a drive to Kathmandu. On return to your hotel your time is free to further explore Kathmandu and its shops and markets, or simply relax.

Day 20: Mountain Flight and Full Day Sightseeing
Those who are restricted by time from going trekking however want to have a closer view of the Himalayas, lake and glacier then Mountain Flight is the one you might be looking for. This flight will make you speechless once you view the sunrise above the Himalayas. During the 1 hour flight you can have spectacular aerial views of the Himalayas including 3 of the world’s 10 highest peak namely, Lhotse, Cho Oyu and of course, the Mount Everest.

Leaving behind the lively and hectic temple and its market stalls we head to another energetic and sacred place of worship, Bouddhanath Stupa. Located 7km east of the city Bouddhanath Stupa, also known as Khasti Chitya, is the largest stupa in Nepal. It lies on the ancient trade route from Tibet to Kathmandu, and for centuries Tibetan merchants have rested and prayed here. Today, it is the holiest Tibetan temple outside of Tibet. Pilgrims, both Tibetans and Sherpas, gather daily to complete a kora (ritual circuit) of the stupa. A stupa has been standing on this site since the 5th century and in 1979 it became a World Heritage Site. It is designed on the mandala – the Buddhist cosmos.

The bank of the sacred Bagmati River is our next visit today. Pashupatinath Temple, which is situated on the banks of the sacred Bagmati River. The temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva, and is also known as ‘The Temple of Living Beings’. It is the holiest Hindu Temple in Nepal and is regarded as the most sacred temple of Lord Shiva in the world. The existence of this temple dates back to 400 AD. The magnificent temple is built in the Nepalese pagoda style and is richly ornate with beautiful carvings, gold covered roofs and silver covered doors, and within houses the sacred linga of Lord Shiva.

Then we go to Swayambhunath – more commonly known as the Monkey Temple after the tribe of monkeys that guard the temple, with its all seeing eyes of Buddha looking over the entire valley. Resting on a hillock 3 km west of Kathmandu, it is one of the holiest Buddhist Chaityas in Nepal. It is said to have evolved spontaneously when the valley was created out of a primordial lake more than 2,000 years ago. This stupa is the oldest of its kind in Nepal and has numerous shrines and monasteries on its premises.

Day 21: Depart Kathmandu.
