Itinerary

ITINERARY CHANGES Our itineraries are updated regularly throughout the year based on customer feedback and to reflect the current situation in each destination. The information included in this Essential Trip Information may therefore differ from when you first booked your trip. It's important that you review this information prior to travel so that you have the latest updates. Due to weather, local conditions, transport schedules, public holidays, political unrest or other factors, further changes may be necessary to your itinerary once in-country. Your group leader or local representative will keep you up to date with any such changes once your trip is underway. OPTIONAL ACTIVITIES A selection of optional activities that have been popular with past travellers are listed in the day-to-day itinerary. This isn't an exhaustive list and should be used as a guide only for some of what might be available. Prices are approximate, are for entrance fees only, and don’t include transport to and from the sites or local guides unless indicated. All activities are subject to availability, and maybe on a join-in basis. It may not be possible to do all the activities listed in the time available at each destination, so some pre-planning for what you are most interested in is advised. When it's recommended that travellers pre-book these activities, look for a note in the Special Information section of the day-to-day itinerary. For most, they can either be organised independently on the day, or let your group leader or local representative know you are interested at the Welcome Meeting and they can assist. Where activities are considered medium or high risk, we work with operators whose safety and credentials we have sighted and assessed. Although it is possible that you may find the same activity cheaper with another operator on the ground, we cannot vouch for the safety or quality of that operator. Medium and high-risk activities not listed above have not been assessed by us and as such our staff and group leader or local representative are unable to assist you with organising these activities. Activities that contravene our Responsible Travel policies are also not listed. Please remember that the decision to partake in any activity not listed is at your own discretion and risk.

Day 1-3 - Kathmandu/Chitwan National Park
Namaste! Welcome to Nepal. Please meet at our Kathmandu office listed in the 'Joining point' section in the Essential Trip Information the day prior to departure at 5 pm for a meeting. We'll depart Kathmandu after breakfast approximately 8 am, travelling by private vehicle to Chitwan National Park (approximately 5 hours). Of all the world's remaining jungles, this is one of the most enchanting. Discover a lost world of towering trees and twisting vines and of lumbering rhinos. There are crocodiles, pythons, deer and brilliantly coloured birds. Spend the evenings by the banks of the river Rapti in the small village of Sauraha, located on the edge of the park. Over the next few days you'll boat along the Rapti, which shelters around a quarter of the world's remaining gharial population. This fish-eating crocodile has been hunted in the past for the supposed aphrodisiac qualities of its snout. Enjoy a guided jeep safari into the National Park as well as a bird-watching experience, and spend some time in a local village. Cap the trip off with an evening performance of a traditional stick dance by the local Tharu people. 
Day 4 - Kathmandu
Drive back to Kathmandu where your adventure concludes. There is no accommodation included tonight. If you would like to stay for longer, please enquire with your booking agent.
