Pokhara, Bandipur & Chitwan National Park tour
What an amazing holiday! 19 days discovering a variety of exciting places in Nepal, under the extremely capable, thoughtful & excellent organization of Himal from "Visit Himalaya Treks". He was able to tailor an individual tour for us. The warm welcome on arrival at the airport, began a special trip, which included travelling to the beautiful village of Bandipur, a 5 day Poon Hill trek, Pokhara & Lake Fewa, Chitwan NP,Nagarkot, Bhaktapur, & Kathmandu.
The Poon Hill trek was timed to view the stunning, gigantic, flowering rhododendron trees and didn't disappoint. Beautiful vistas of the trees, many moss-covered & rainforest, the high snow-capped peaks, blue sky, small waterfalls,and even a little snow on our path. We passed and stayed in small villages and when the going uphill proved tough, our guide Rajan & porter Ishwar helped and encouraged me.
Rajan is to be commended on his attention to detail. He taught us so much about the everyday life in Nepal, the religions, the history, culture, customs and the mountains. Both Raj and Ishwar,were very respectful, courteous and warm people, who accommodated our wishes.(we were 1 middle-aged Aussie couple only on this tour). We enjoyed some good laughs together. In Chitwan NP, they organised an excellent local guide Bishnu, who was a wealth of knowledge about the area, especially the fauna /birdlife.
The accommodation at the Hotel Parkland in Sauraha was peaceful and had a lovely garden.We were happy with the other hotels and guesthouses on the rest of the tour too. (Some were more basic on the trek-to be expected!) If we hadn't had Rajan's local knowledge & Nepali language, we would've missed the outstanding festival chariot, procession & offerings ceremony of the Seto Machhendranach in Kathmandu.
We can thoroughly recommend doing a tour or trek with "Visit Himalaya Treks"-do try and ensure you're fit before you come! And if you keep an open, enquiring mind & sense of humour and show respect for a country very different to your own, you will benefit most from the trip.
