Annapurna Discovery

This is a leisurely trek to the Annapurna region visiting Poon Hill for Himalayan viewpoint and Gurung villages.

We start by taking the spectacular flight from Kathmandu to Pokhara where you will get superb views of the Himalayan mountains. The Annapurna Discovery trek follows trails in the Annapurna foothills passing through pretty Gurung villages, terraced fields and rhododendron forests. This is a leisurely trek giving you time to enjoy the views and the culture of Nepal. From Ghorepani village you have superb views of Annapurna, Lamjung, Dhaulagiri and Machapuchare (commonly know as Fishtail mountain). The high point of this trek is the walk up Poon Hill for the sunrise across a panorama of Himalayan mountains.

After the trek you travel to Chitwan National Park where you will go an elephant safari, bird watching and a jungle walk. Chitwan National Park is one of prime habitat of the Royal bengal tiger and has many other interesting animals and birds.
