Amazing blog post and great content. Thanks for sharing such amazing content with us. I will recommend this website to all my friends and family members to visit it at least once. Keep posting. I am putting some links from my blog on trekking and adventure activities. Anyone interested in looking at it can visit my website.
I have taken Chitwan Wildlife Safari as a family vacation with my two little girls & hubby in early October. The time is perfect to visit this famous National park probably the best animal sighting safari in south Asia. The day we arrive Chitwan is bit late and couldn’t do much. However, our wildlife excursion begins early morning following day as we ride giant Elephant and explore the deep Jungle. My girls are really curious to encounter with Rhinoceros as they always talks about it’s horn (nose) rise above the mouth & bending skins. They wish to see it live.
Luckily, we saw a mother & baby taking sunbath on the bush within 15 minutes ride inside National Park. As we proceed, saw several species of Deer, sloth Bear, Peacock, Mars crocodile, reptiles, birds & many more during our 3 our trip. Later, we have another experience while crossing the Rapti River on a small Canoe where two Crocodile was just a meters away, but they looks calm & relaxed. We ended up the day by observing Tharu Cultural show where they usually perform with sticks & fire. Final day we have Jeep Safari deep into the National park with more animal sights, beautiful Lakes and of course dense forest & exotic plants.
All in all this is perfect family vacation for us. This trip is choice of my bigger girls & hope they enjoy the vacation & learn much about the wildlife & mother nature… Thanks Himalaya Trekking for organizing the fabulous trip to us… Cheers !
I have planned a Mardi Himal Trek in Nepal with some colleague in October. The Himalaya Trekking drive you away from the main path to isolated areas of the Annapurna Himalayas. fabulous landscapes on the walks along the high ridges of Mardi and Fishtail mountain. Walk from lower and rice fields to reach higher alpine hills covered with thick dense forests of tall rhododendrons, oak and magnolia pines and fir lines. We are more than happy to recommend RAM & his team for an incredible panoramic tour of the Annapurna peaks with close views of Mardi and Fishtail Mountain. They are fantastic to fulfill your desire & no words to describe the natural vistas you have in Nepal.
We did the “BEST OF NEPAL” tour with Himalaya Trekking company and had such a wonderful time. Ram’s planning to the whole trip was excellent, making everything seems easy. He was very patient handling all the changes I had made in dates, hotels, etc. His guides were very informative and decent and his driver was safe and always on time.
Would definitely use them on my next trip.
