Welcome to the land of the Himalayas! As you arrive at the Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu, we will be there to receive you and escort you to your hotel room. After a rest, attend a trip briefing. Our travel consultant or guide will brief you on your itinerary. Late afternoon or evening you can stroll around in the streets of Thamel, the main tourist hub in Kathmandu. Overnight in Kathmandu.
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. 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. 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. 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 you regular staple.

This is one of the easy treks in Annapurna region. Everyday day we walk for 4-5hours. Anyone with normal fitness level can join this trek. In fact, it is one of the best family adventure packages.
Each day you can expect 5 to 7 hours of walking, covering around 10 to 14 km. However when you reach 3500m, you will be walking around 5 to 7 hours but the distance covered will be less as you will be walking slowly at higher altitudes. We want you to know that all our itineraries are flexible and can be altered by weather, geographical and physical condition of the individual participants.
The permits needed are - Annapurna Conservation Area Project (ACAP) entry fee and TIMS(Trekkers’ Information Management System fee).
The symptoms of altitude sickness are generally seen at elevations above 4000m. Since the highest point you will reach during your trek is Poon Hill at 3210m, there is no cause for concern. You will be spending only an hour or two at this height. Most part of your trek will be at lower elevations.
The quality of teahouses in the Annapurna Region is pretty good and most of them offer facilities like western toilets, hot showers (may charge cost) and a wide range of items on their menu. The rooms are usually furnished with two separate beds with mattress, pillows, blankets and bed sheets. Most of the teahouses are family or community run establishments. Teahouses are like an extended home and have a warm and cosy feel to them.
We provide sleeping bag and down jacket but you need to bring your own personal gear. We can recommend some good stores where you can hire or buy new ones.
Teahouses offer boiled and filtered drinking water to trekkers for a price. Though you can purchase bottled water, we discourage the use of plastic bottled water on the trail because of the adverse effect on the environment. You can bring along with you a reusable bottle nd fill it up with drinking water.
Your guide will check the condition of the water of the filtered water before you purchase it. Please be assured that our guide will thoroughly check whether the water has been boiled and treated properly before you drink it.
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.
You can store it at your hotel (most hotels in Kathmandu have storage facilities) or you can leave it at our office.
Yes, single supplement will be available in the cities and at lower elevations while trekking. At higher elevations there are very few teahouses. During peak season when there is high demand for rooms, it will be difficult to book single rooms. However if you are travelling during off season a single room can be arranged at all places.
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.
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.
Please do note, all our trekking itineraries incorporate adequate number of acclimatization days. You will get an extra day’s rest at a lower elevation to prepare your body for a walk up in the higher reaches.
AMS or Acute Mountain Sickness usually occurs due to the lack of oxygen in the atmosphere in high altitudes. Our body is not used to walking in high altitude and it requires a lot of time to adapt to thin air in the mountains. Technically there is no way of stopping AMS but you can surely prevent it by following the given 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.
If you have to leave the expedition due to ill-health or injury, an emergency air rescue will be arranged whereby an air ambulance/helicopter will fly you out of the mountains to Kathmandu for medical attention. Make sure your insurance covers high altitude mountain rescue. If you are able to walk down, one of the assistant guides will guide you down to a lower elevation where you can wait for the rest of the team or fly out to Kathmandu ahead of the group. Whether for health or personal reasons, please do note refunds for the unused days of your trip will not be given. Even if you leave the expedition beforehand, we are committed to pay the porters, and guides for the duration of the trip for which they are hired.
