Tucked away peacefully in the lap of the Himalayas is a country loved by Mother Nature. Often dubbed as the “Amazon of Asia”, Nepal is not only home to the high Himalayas but also to the dense forests of the lowlands that offer a perfect family tour getaway. Nepal Safari Tour explores the vast forests of Chitwan National Park before heading on to the beautiful adventure land Pokhara and its outskirts that host breathtaking view of the Himalayas. Nepal Safari Tour is a perfect exploration package which is suitable for people of all ages who love being close to nature.
The journey to wildlife haven begins with a drive from Kathmandu to Chitwan National Park. Covering 943 sq km of forests, marshland, and grasslands, jungle safari in Chitwan National Park is an excellent chance to observe the one-horned rhinoceros, musk deer, Asiatic elephant, unique and vibrant species of birds, and a wide selection of exotic animals. A once in a lifetime opportunity to witness the majestic Royal Bengal tiger is an experience privy only to the fortunate. After the fun exploration of Chitwan National Park, the journey moves on to Pokhara, the city of lakes often known as the mirror to the Himalayas. Dive deep into culture and history with visits to the International Mountaineering Museum, World Peace Pagoda, and Gupteshwor cave. A short drive offering mesmerizing views of terraced farmlands then takes you to Phedi, followed by an uphill trek to Australian Camp. As you move through the well-made jungle trail accompanied by the sounds of birds, you reach the Gurung village of Dhampus. Both Australian Camp and Dhampus are renowned for the majestic views of Annapurna South (7219m) and Machhapuchhre (6997m) that dominate the skyline. Then a short downhill walk through the rhododendron forest brings you to the vantage point of Sarangkot, also famous for paragliding. Mesmerizing views of the valley down below and the majestic Himalayas in the skyline account for an authentic experience in Sarangkot. A calming boat ride in either Phewa Lake or Begnas Lake signals the end of Nepal Safari Tour.
