Short and easy trekking in Annapurna region with rafting on Seti river followed by the Chitwan jungle safari with elephant ride is one of the best adventure holiday trip in Nepal.
Good trail, relaxed walking, no altitude problem, tea house stay in style and comfort allow every trekkers to explore the stunning mountain scenery, terraced hillsides and ethnic groups on the Annapurna trekking. We trek through ethnic settlements where many of the Gurkhas were recruited. The morning hike to Poon hill is fabulous to witness the Himalayan vista of three 8000 meter peaks of mt. Dhaulagiri, Annapurna and Manaslu.
White water rafting on Seti River is the perfect link between the fascinating short Annapurna trek and a jungle safari in Chitwan National Park. The rafting is pleasant blend of excitement of small to moderate rapids. Bird life (in particular, kingfishers, chats and egrets) is abundant and Langur and Rhesus monkeys are often seen along the banks. Spending a night on back of river on tented camp adds more charm in your adventure holiday trip.
After the trekking and rafting adventure it now time to enjoy the exotic Chitwan wildlife safari activities. During the jungle safari activities like elephant back safari and canoe ride, bird watching, jungle walk etc, you can see the elusive wild animal including the Great Indian one horned rhinoceros, crocodile, deer, monkey, sloth bear and an incredible variety of bird life – over 300 species. If you are lucky you may even get a glimpse of the elusive Royal Bengal tiger or a leopard.
