Himalayan Gateway Tour

Destination: Kathmandu - Pokhara - Ghorepani Poonhill Trekking with beautiful Sunrise -Ghandruk Trekking - Chitwan National Park

Beauty is the first thought in one’s mind when talking about Nepal. Within its small territory, Nepal has a lot more to offer to its travellers. From 8 of the mountains above 8000 meters to the diverse wildlife including some of the rare species of animals like one horned Rhino, Nepal never fails to surprise. While in Nepal many people look after adventures like high altitude trekking, White Water River rafting, Peak climbing, Paragliding and so on. But besides adventure, Nepal’s beauty can be witnessed with comfort. Adventure Treks Nepal is proud to introduce a tailor made holiday package that has everything that one wants to experience here in Nepal.

Starting with a luxury stay in Kathmandu with an influence of Nepal’s true Culture in Hotel Dwarika’s, we head to Pokhara to stay in another trip advisor recommended hotel with peaceful and unique environment. After spending few days knowing about the cultural and religious history of this beautiful country, we now begin our trek to observe the real gem this country holds, the Himalayas. We trek to Poonhill, one of the popular trekking routes of Nepal suitable for people of all age to catch splendid panoramic views of the Annapurna, Dhaulagiri and Fishtail Himalayan Range. Poonhill (3,210m) also offers one of the best sunrise views in Nepal.

After spending few days away from the luxury of city life and experiencing the Himalayan life closely we fly towards Chitwan National Park, home for one horned rhinos. We spend couple of nights in Chitwan National Park in a opulent hotel to heal our aching body after the trek. We also involve ourselves in many wildlife activities to know more about what’s hidden inside Nepal’s forests. Finally, we return back to Kathmandu to say goodbye to this beautiful country and return back home with memories that last lifelong.
