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.

Day 3: Rafting in Trishuli and drive to Pokhara

2-3 hours rafting, 5 - 6 hour drive
rafting Rafting in Trisuli River- Nepal´s most popular rafting river place

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. Their 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

Day 4: Drive to Nayapul and trek to Ulleri

1.30 hours drive, 4 -5 hours trek

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.

Day 5: Trek to Ghorepani

4-5 hours trek
Poon Hill Poon Hill - Located in the Annapurna region of Nepal at an elevation of 3210m

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.

Day 6: Trek to Tadapani

5 - 6 hour trek

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.

Day 7: Trek to Ghandruk and drive to Pokhara

3 - 4 hour trek, 2 hour drive

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

Day 8: Paragliding in Pokhara and drive to Chitwan

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.

Day 9: Jungle Activities at Chitwan National Park

Elephant Ride Elephant ride is the safest way to explore Chitwan National Park

Today is the day to explore the Chitwan National Park. The elephant ride in the National park lets you observe the wildlife nearby. Excitement can double if you can spot the famous one-horned Rhino in the vicinity. You can also bathe with the elephants; the giant creatures are gentle, jump into the river with them for fun. Snug in comfortably in the evening and relax or take a walk around the locality. There are things to discover. In the afternoon, a walk through the jungle 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 inhabits the area. Observe how they live in harmony with the wildlife, just beside their homes. A lunch break inside the park will provide you with a sweet break from your walk. Try bird watching; it is stimulating, you will spot different species. You can go out and try some of the authentic tastes of ethnic cuisines in Chitwan; it will be a break from your regular staple. The cool night air of the jungle and the traditional “Tharu” stick dance will set you in a mood for dancing the night away.

Nepal Multi Adventure Holiday FAQs

If you want to add extra activities and sites to your itinerary it can be done. Our Travel Consultant will help you customize your trip. Just let us know which places you want to visit and what you want to do and we will add these in your itinerary.

We usually provide private comfortable vehicles to individual tourists. For groups we provide comfortable luxury buses for pick up and drop-offs.

While tipping is not mandatory it is a nice way of showing your appreciation to the people who have helped you enrich your holiday experience. It all depends on how far you are pleased and satisfied with their services. There is no fixed amount, but many of our clients offer 8-10 percent of the total tour price as tips.   

We would recommend all our clients to purchase travel insurance before booking any of our treks. Trust us you will have a pleasant holiday knowing that you have a good insurance cover. In the event of any sickness or injury while trekking in the mountains, the cost of emergency treatment and evacuation will be considerable. Therefore, traveling with an insurance cover is strongly recommended for everyone who signs up for any of our trips. But be careful while choosing a policy as some policies make special exceptions for adventure travel.

Do read the fine print. Before buying insurance make sure your insurance company is aware of your travel itinerary and is agreeable to cover all activities being undertaken during the trip. Such as if you are planning to trek or climb (mountaineering expedition) in the Himalayas, your insurance must cover emergency air ambulance/helicopter rescue including medical expenses. For a group tour in an urban area, insurance cover of air ambulance or helicopter rescue is not mandatory. While booking a trip with us you need to send us a copy of your insurance policy (e.g. your insurance certificate) or carry it with you while you come for the trip.

No, you cannot get insurance in Nepal. Please also note that Third Rock Adventures does not arrange or sell insurance.

We carry a first-aid box with us while trekking. But if you want you can carry along some essential medicines like ibuprofen, codeine, paracetamol, lozenges, anti-diarrhea tablets and diamox for AMS.

Most of the guides in our adventure company come from the mountainous areas. They are carefully selected on the basis of their experience, leadership skills and personal aptitude. We provide guides that are experienced and fluent in English. With the objective of sustaining local communities, we employ guides from different ethnic backgrounds who have adequate knowledge about the culture, ecosystem, flora and fauna, geography and history of Nepal.

Our guides have the required government license to guide tourists. They have all gone through intensive training programs like wilderness first aid, trekking guide training, eco training workshop and rock climbing, ice climbing and mountaineering, which are certified and approved by the government of Nepal.

You can store it at your hotel (most hotels in Kathmandu have storage facilities) or you can leave it at our office.

Teahouse trekking is one of the most popular ways of trekking in Nepal. Teahouse trekking has almost replaced old style camping treks in Nepal along the popular trekking routes of Annapurna and Everest regions. Teahouse Trek involves resting or stopping at teahouses or lodges scattered along the trail for the night. The teahouses are locally owned and they provide accommodation and food. While the standard of teahouses varies, most of these establishments usually offer basic services - small rooms (usually on a twin sharing basis with comfortable beds), shared washroom, a heated communal dining area and a menu with a range of dishes. Some may offer wi-fi and hot shower. As these teahouses are located in remote locations, one should not expect the service of a city hotel while staying in one. But in popular trails like Everest Base Camp trail and Annapurna Base Camp trail one can expect luxury standard accommodations too.

Fulfilling multi day adventure
I wanted a wholesome experience of adventure activities in Nepal so I felt this itinerary was apt for me. Tresuli was a few hours drive from Kathamndu where we had a wonderful time rafting. As a novice in the rapids it was thrilling and exuberant. Pokhara is an incredible place to do paragliding on a good day. The hike showed me the village side of Nepal which I only heard. Amazingly warm and nice people. I had an awesome time with my pilot definitely try other things on my next trip to Pokhara. I enjoyed the jungles of Chitwan and elephant bathing but sadly we couldn’t spot the tiger. Can’t gush enough about the hospitality of locals of Chitwan; their dance made me join them as well. I had a fulfilling experience of multi day adventures in Nepal I couldn’t do bungee this time but will be back to try it!
The hiking experience changed perspective in many way!
It a great country to do adventure activities amidst natural beauty. Would be returning for more adventures in the future.

A fun-filled vacation
We chose this trip as it offered everything that we wanted to try out in Nepal – trekking, paragliding, rafting, bungy jumping and wildlife safari. We also did the Everest mountain flight and a rickshaw ride in Thamel (on our last day in Kathmandu). Thanks to the sales team at Third Rock Adventures for the suggestions! The trek to Ghorepani –Poon Hill was like a dream come true. After having checked out several vlogs about Ghorepani trek on Youtube, it was a treat to walk through the same trail in reality. Everything was so pristine and pure. You feel so thankful to be alive; to breathe in the pure mountain air and take in the wondrous mountain sights, when you are up there in the mountains. Though it was a bit cloudy when we started the trek, thankfully we had a clear sky when we hiked up to Poon Hill. The sunrise over the Annapurna range was spectacular. Though I was a bit apprehensive about trying out bungy jumping and paragliding, but the safety measures were in place and I had a blast. Rafting in the rapids of Trishuli and elephant ride at Chitwan National Park added more thrill and excitement to our trip. This was one of the most exciting and adrenaline packed vacations I have had so far. Already planning a trek to Everest Base Camp with TRA next year! The team at TRA really exceeded our expectations. They really know how to take care of their clients’ needs! All of us (we were a group of 17-19 year old girls) felt safe traveling with them.
Best Destination,
Yes
For the multi-activities on offer.

A trip packed with thrills and excitement
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!
