While Nepal is a rightly recognized as a paradise for climbers and trekkers, this beautiful country has so much more to offer! Nepal has an extremely rich cultural and religious heritage as well as endless natural beauty that will take your breath away. The highlight of our trip will be spent on the Ghorepani - Ghandruk trek, also known as Poon hill trek. We will spend 5 days walking from village to village on the Poon Hill Trek, spending time with locals and in nature. Spring is a special season to hike in Nepal, where you can trek through the rhododendron forests that bloom with bright red flowers, pass by roaring waterfalls, and we can enjoy the local people's hospitality and cultural significance in the country. Soon after completing our trek, we make our way to the south central part of Nepal. Biological and culturally different than the Himalayas, central Nepal is known for its thick jungle and abundance of wildlife (we may even spot a rare one-horned rhinoceros). Spend three days enjoying Chitwan National Park, an area filled with biodiversity and beauty. We will have the opportunity to canoe, scout for elusive animals in the dense jungle, and learn about the conservation of Asian elephants. Join us in Nepal for an amazing tour of the country's trekking and wildlife!
