Kathmandu is a warm and friendly city. We will take a guided tour of the four major points of touristic interest today. All these spots are listed in the UNESCO heritage sites’ list. First of all we will visit the historic Kathmandu Durbar Square, which holds the palaces of the ancient kings who ruled over the then Kathmandu Kingdom. The sacred Hindu temple of Pashupatinath is one of the most sacred pilgrimage sites for Hindus all over the world. The famous 'Monkey Temple' (Swayambunath) got its name owing to the large number of monkeys in the temple area, it is also a good viewpoint to see the city below. Finally we visit a Buddhists shrine (Boudhanath) which is one of the largest Buddhist stupas in the world. Overnight in Kathmandu.
Today we will start early, a 3 hour drive will take you to the starting point of your rafting adventure , Charaudi (1968.48ft). The crew prepares the rafts, after which all head towards the river for safety talk and lessons on how to use paddles. There choppy waters of the Trishuli River will have you screaming in excitement. There are various rapids that have funny names – Upset, Ladies’ Delight, S Bend etc. Two hours down the river is a beach with strange shaped boulders that resemble sculptures and this is the lunch spot. Around noon time your hunger pangs might be getting stronger after all that paddling. An outdoor lunch would be served on the banks which is always an enchanting experience. It also gives everyone a break from paddling and time to take in the scenery. Around late afternoon we head onwards towards Pokhara, the “City of Lakes.” In the evening you can stroll around the Lakeside area, which is lined with restaurants and bars. Overnight in Pokhara
In the morning, we drive to Nayapul and start the trek. We pass through sub-tropical valley forests, sometimes on the carved trail on the side of the cliff. After lunch, we cross the Modi Khola (river) via a suspension bridge to the village of Tikhedhunga. The Ulleri Hill with thousands of steps and boulders that continually go upward would really prove a test of our stamina. We reach Ulleri by late afternoon. Overnight in Teahouse.
We make our ascent to the Ghorepani village. The name Ghorepani in Nepali means horse-water owing to its role as an important campsite for traders (who used to travel on horseback) before it became a trekker's stop. Ghorepani is an interesting place with small shops and stalls for selling local products and craft. The town has two parts: one in a saddle and the other a few hundred feet lower. We stop at the higher part of the Ghorepani village that offers panoramic views of the surrounding mountains including Annapurna South and Nilgiri mountains. Since Ghorepani lies quite higher than our previous stop, we begin to feel the chilly weather especially in the evenings. Overnight in Ghorepani.
Today will be a special day because we conquer Poon Hill- an icon of Annapurna region. To catch the magnificent splendor of sunrise over the Himalayas, we make an early morning climb along the steep trail to the viewpoint of Poon Hill (3200mtrs). Poon Hill (3,210m/10,529ft) is a great viewpoint from where we will be able to enjoy wonderful panoramic views of the Mustang part and Pokhara valleys including the closest views of more than 20 highest mountains including the close-up views of the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri ranges. The snowy peaks of the high mountains loom above and around us glowing in the morning light. After taking photos and having some coffee or tea or hot chocolate, we return back to Gorepani. Upon breakfast, we head east and climb a nearby ridge. We descend through rhododendron forest, pass by spectacular waterfalls along the way and reach Tadapani. Overnight in Tadapani.
From Tadapani, we make a steep descent through the dense and dark forest. This part of the trek will be through a thick forest of old rhododendron trees. When the rhododendron trees are in bloom, these forests actually turn into gardens of dazzlingly beautiful flowers, mostly red, when seen from the air or from far. By afternoon, depending upon the season of travel, we will be pleasantly surprised by the sight of some cherry blossoms in bloom on the slopes, on the other side of the ravine. After trekking some more minutes, we enter the village of Ghandruk, a slope settlement with stone houses mostly inhabited by the Gurung people. Along with enjoying the stunningly close-up towering views of Fishtail, Annapurna South, and Hiuchuli mountains, we also acquaint ourselves with the simple but rich cultural traditions of the Gurung people at the Gurung Museum in Ghandruk. We will continue to trek from Ghandruk to Nayapul then drive back to Pokhara. Overnight in Pokhara
Wake up early in the morning and prepare for your paragliding adventure. You will be driven to Sarangkot hill from where you will get to paraglide(tandem) and fly like a bird. You will be attached to a harness in front of an experienced paraglider who will guide the chute down to the landing area. During the flight you can enjoy a bird’s eye view of the whole Pokhara valley, including the Phewa Lake, and the surrounding Himalayan peaks. After your flying adventure, drive back to your hotel and prepare for a drive to Chitwan.
Take a scenic drive in between valleys and riversides from Pokhara to Chitwan. Watch the world go by in a blur as you rumble down 95 miles towards Chitwan, it takes about 4-5 hours to reach there, so plug your ears to some good music. Sauraha is a tourist hub, take some time out and relax, you will need it after the long drive. You can laze around the river bank with a bottle of chilled beer till sundown. Overnight in Chitwan.
Today is the day to explore the Chitwan National Park. The elephant ride in the National park lets you observe the wildlife in close proximity.

Snug in comfortably in the evening and relax or take a walk around the locality, there are things to discover. A walk through the jungle in the afternoon will take you to the banks of “Rapti” river, spot various aquatic wildlife while canoeing through the calm waters – alligators and marsh muggers. Find out more about the ethnic “Tharu” community that inhabit the area. Observe how they live in harmony with the wildlife, just beside their homes.

This trip was AWESOME! We (my friends and I) had so much fun engaging in a varied range of activities. The trip was well paced and we never felt rushed. We had fine weather throughout our trip. Thanks to the weather gods, we could enjoy a Himalayan sunrise from Poonhill. Words cannot express the beauty of that wonderful sight. We had an adrenaline rush trying out the rest of the activities – paragliding(the best way to explore Pokhara valley!), rafting, bungy jumping and jungle safari. Our guides were excellent. They were friendly, caring and fun to be with. I would recommend this trip and this company for anyone seeking an adventure holiday. Thank you Third Rock Adventures for planning this wonderful trip. Fun and adventure was what we were looking for and we found both!
