Family Trekking with Chitwan National Park in Nepal 14 Days.

Family Trekking is one of the classic Himalayan trekking regions, the Annapurnas provide everything a mountain trekker could ask for at lower altitudes than Everest area treks. Its name is indicative of its natural serenity, beauty and the divine presence of the Hindu goddess Annapurna. During the spring the rhododendrons are in bloom while the fall will allow us to see farmers harvesting rice and millet. We'll climb couple of Himalayan hills up to 3,210m for exceptional views of the Annapurnas and Machapuchare. We pass through rhododendron forests, fascinating Gurung villages and river valleys.

After wonderful trip in the mountains, We drive to Chitwan National Park.


We arrive at a rustic jungle lodge and camp where we will spend a couple of days searching for game on the back of an elephant, by dugout canoe, by jeep and on foot into the deep Terai jungle. You may see a one-horned rhinoceros, leopards, varieties of deer, the elusive Royal Bengal tiger, and any number of exotic tropical birds.
