Our Program


Kathmandu

Land in Kathmandu, followed by a transfer to the hotel. You’ve the first day at your leisure to explore and rest as you’d prefer.

On the second morning, join us as we explore the city of Kathmandu, the lively, buzzing capital of Nepal. The emphasis of this day tour will be on experiencing the rich cultural heritage of the city.

Trek - Hugdi - Hattibang

Early next morning, we set off to the trail head at Hugdi on the Kathmandu – Narayanghat Highway. After breakfast along the way, we begin a trek uphill to about 1400 meters at Hattibang. The nature of the trek is moderate to strenuous and extremely picturesque in nature. You will pass countless tiny villages and behind you will be the stunning scenery of the Trishuli river, flanker by mountains in the horizon. We camp for the night in homestays amidst Magar houses in Hattibang.

Trek - Sirauchuli - Gurung Village

Another early rise is followed by an uphill walk for 2 hours to reach Sirauchuli – the highest point in the Chitwan district at ~1945 meters to enjoy the 180 degree view of the Himalayas from Dhaulagiri to Gauri Shankar. Locals claim you can see right up to Mumbai in India. After a short rest, we start the up-down (so called Nepali flat) trail to Upardangadi which will take about 4 hours. We go for a moderate trek through an excellent trail meandering through forests and grazing fields. By afternoon, after the last long descent, arrive in the village for a well deserved rest. In the early evening we walk up to the Upardang fortress for a stunning sunset, before walking back to our home stays in this Gurung village which is highlighted by a cultural performance by the people of the village (provided our group size justifies it).

Chitwan National Park

The next day after breakfast, we bid our lovely hosts a goodbye and start trekking the long way down to the river and then along the river bed to Shaktikhor. This trek will take about 3 hours maximum. Comfortable vehicles await to transfer you to Chitwan National Park.
