Best of Nepal Trekking
This adventure trip provides a complete overview of Nepal. We combine two popular treks in Annapurna and Everest region - undertake a wildlife safari in the Chitwan National Park and savor the delights of the Kathmandu Valley. During the trek through the Annapurna foothills we visit villages where many of the Gurkhas were recruited and gain vantage points to view the peaks of the Annapurnas that will undoubtedly whet your appetite for the Everest region. After undertaking a jungle safari in the Chitwan National Park we head to the Everest region to experience the legendary hospitality of the Sherpa people and gain views of Everest and a host of other spectacular peaks.
