Nepal is just not the Himalayan snow peaks. We have a unique landscape with the mountains on the North, hills in between and the terai (flat lands) in the south. For vacation seekers who love wildlife, the Chitwan National Park is the legend! You can do the elephant back safari or the jeep safari and explore the wild. The highlight of the safari is spotting rhinos, deer, crocodile, wild boar, tigers (rare). And for a treat you can also bathe the elephants and play around the elephant babies. The safari also includes traditional dance, canoeing, bird watching, etc.
Rafting and Canoeing
If you’re up for some thrill in the river, you need to gear up and head to the rapids. Nepal offers an outstanding selection of rivers for you to rumble on those waves. Rafting is a half day, full day or an overnight activity that may not sweep you off the boat, but will surely sweep you off your feet.You can also get into the wilderness and try canoeing in some of the most untouched and hidden parts of Nepal.
We have all, at one time dreamt of flying high and have often wished we had wings. Some dreams do come true and some wishes fulfilled. Paragliding in Pokhara is one of the most fantasized activity where colorful parachutes flies from a top of the hills hovering around the green valley with the snow-capped mountain backdrop and lands right next to the pristine blue lake. The 20 – 30 mins flight gives you an aerial tour of Pokhara city and an experience you will cherish lifelong. If you want to add in a bit of adventure here, you can also opt to do para-hawking and fly with the vultures, literally!
Ultra Light Flights (Microflight)
