Head to Nepal for an adrenaline-fuelled mountain biking holiday as you ride through the world’s deepest gorge and afterwards soothe your legs by sinking into a hot spring pool. Breathe in the fresh Himalayan air and be one with the mountains. The perfect combination for exploring nature and staying fit. Substitute the backdrop of dull buildings and never-ending traffic for snow-capped mountains and rustic paths; Hop onto an elephant for Asia’s most spectacular Safari and fly by Mount Everest – the highest summit of the world. This extraordinary country has a deep, humbling power. The astonishing spirit of its people and the immensity of its landscape will knock you out with a whole-hearted shot of adrenaline and then mesmerize you into a quiet calm. There is no place quite like it.
Arrive in Kathmandu and soak up the sights before days of pulse racing activity begins. See the UNESCO World Heritage Site, Durbar Square, with its amazing complex of temples and monuments that have witnessed the rise and fall of several dynasties. The next day, enjoy an amazing land cruised through the Kathmandu Valley to reach the adventure capital of Nepal, 3 out of the 10 highest Mountains in the World — Dhaulagiri, Annapurna I and Manaslu surrounding the City of Pokhara. You will be flown by jet over the Himalayas to reach a village smack in between the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri mountain range. This is the starting point for your downhill, thrill-seeking challenge. “Easing you in gently” isn’t a familiar phrase here; you’ll follow a steep and rough path as you begin your white knuckle decent. Break up the journey with welcome stops and teahouses along the way.
For the next few days you will steadily make your way down the valley following a majestic river through villages, farms, terraced paddy fields, dense forests and over suspension bridges. You will pass through diverse landscapes from dry, arid desert to lush pine and conifer forests and see the three highest snow-capped mountain ranges – Mt. Annapurna, Mt. Dhaulagiri and Mt. Manaslu – not your average dual carriageway.
En route you will also get the chance to stop off and explore the different villages, mixing and socialising with locals. Make sure you sample local apple cider and brandy and ease those aching muscles in the hot spring pool– the perfect way to rejuvenate. This spectacular journey takes you off-the-beaten-track and deep into a world of undiscovered terrain. It’s time to get active, explore and come home with a sense of achievement. Say good-bye to traffic and hello to extreme adventure!
Even though most people think of snow-capped mountains when they think of Nepal, nearly half of the population lives in the hot, jungle-covered lowlands known as the Terai. A landscape dense with rivers, trees and animals, the Terai offers one of the best wildlife experiences in Asia. The Royal Chitwan National Park – a UNESCO World Heritage site – is home to endangered species such as the Asian one-horned rhinoceros and the Bengal tiger. Set out with our expert naturalists for an afternoon of exploring the forest, venture even further into the rich landscape as you travel by elephant. The park encompasses not only dense forests, but also flood plains and grasslands, why not take a boat ride and spot an abundance of wild birds. Is this the best remedy to any city blues?
