Annapurna Treat & Safari

Trip Overview

Route: Kathmandu – Pokhara – Australia Camp – Chitwan - Kathmandu

If you have ever wanted to experience Nepal but felt you never really had a lot of time to get on a trail and gain some altitude, and are not such a keen trekker, well then this is the trip for you. Expedition Base has developed some Nepal trips of 10 days or less to give you a nice ‘taste’ of Nepal to take back home with you. On this trip, there is mix of city, mountains and a safari experience – all in one neat package.

Alternatively, this is a great add-on trip if you have been trekking or climbing in other parts of Nepal. Add this on for a quick snapshot of the Annapurna region, Pokhara and Chitwan safari experience.
