DAY 2 – Kathmandu Valley Tour The day begins early as we make our way back to the airport for the incredible Mountain Flight to Mt. Everest and back. This flight takes you high above the very backbone of the Eastern Himalayas. You fly past a number of mountain ranges with their snowcapped peaks until you arrive at Mt. Everest, the world’s highest mountain. Rising 8,848 meters/29,029 feet, it stands majestically in all of its glory. Around it are several other 8,000+ meter peaks that act like they are holding court around the king of mountains. The flight circles Mt. Everest, giving you a birds’ eye view and in the comfort of your seat. It’s cold down on the top of Mt. Everest, but you are in a heated cabin, looking down while taking pictures in comfort. The flight returns to Kathmandu, where you will be taken by private vehicle to tour several of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites that the Kathmandu Valley is famous for. These sites represent the incredible heritage of the Kathmandu Valley from Royal Palaces to ancient Hindu temples and Buddhist stupas. We will visit the beautiful city of Bhaktapur. The entire city has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site because of its architecture and temples. In the evening, you will return to the Dwarika Hotel for a delicious meal and a good night’s rest.
DAY 3 – Fly to Bharatpur and then travel to Meghauli Serai It is a short flight to the city of Bharatpur (20 minutes) as we make our way to Meghauli Serai Resort in Chitwan National Park. The people that run this resort have created the finest luxury resorts in jungle settings in both Asia and Africa. The flight saves us plenty of time as the traditional bus journey is 6 hours! Once we arrive at the airport, we will take a private vehicle to the Resort where we will be greeted with wonderful hospitality. There will be time to relax and to do some excursions while in the evening; there will be a special Tharu Cultural Program. The Tharu’s have called the jungles their home for centuries, learning how to live in harmony with the wild animals. They have a unique culture which they are very proud to show you in the evening. Relax at night with the sounds of the jungle.
DAY 4 – Jungle Adventure The jungles of the Meghauli part of Chitwan National Park see very few visitors. This is a real plus because it means that you have the best chance of seeing all of the jungle animals, including the endangered Royal Bengal Tiger and Indian One-Horned Rhinoceros. While there is no guarantee of seeing these elusive animals, you have the best opportunity in this part of the jungle to discover them in the wild. Your guide knows where to look for the animals. Be patient as you wait in the jungle. You will take a private jeep into the jungle, and then quietly wait for the animals near waterholes. Your jungle guide knows these jungles. There is a very good chance that your guide will be one of the Tharu people who grew up in these jungles and knows the habits of these elusive and amazing animals. It will be a day like nothing else you have experienced! In the evening, return to Meghauli Serai.
DAY 5 – Return to Kathmandu Around noon, we will take our flight back to Kathmandu where you can choose to rest at Dwarika Hotel or do some shopping and sightseeing in the capital city of Nepal. The afternoon is your time to enjoy all the wonders that Nepal has to offer.
DAY 6 – DepartureEnding is always a bittersweet moment. It is hard to leave Nepal, especially after enjoying this Chitwan Luxury Jungle Expedition. With some luck, you’ve been able to see a Royal Bengal Tiger and a One-Horned Rhinoceros in the wild. Even if you didn’t see a tiger, you can be certain the tiger saw you! But before you board that flight to your next destination, why not consider a return trip to Nepal? There is so much more to see, do and experience in this land of the Himalayas.

Why Should I Consider The Chitwan Luxury Jungle Expedition?
Maybe the better question is, “Why’s not?” If you love to explore the jungles of Nepal, looking for amazing endangered wild animals while at night experiencing the luxury of one of the finest hotels in the world, then the Chitwan Luxury Jungle Expedition is perfect for you. Sure, it is more expensive than the traditional jungle safaris in Nepal, but as the saying goes, you pay for what you get. Here, you will enjoy world-class service, excellent food, and luxurious accommodations. It just doesn’t get any better than this!

You will be out alone with your guide, quietly exploring the jungles for the animals. You will come away with some amazing pictures that you can show to the envy of your friends.

Climate and Weather
The best time to experience the jungle to see tigers is March through May when the water holes are drying up and the animals have to travel to fewer spots to find water. The temperatures at this time run around 36° - 40° C. Summer brings heavy rains in the Terai region where Chitwan National Park is located. Autumn is pleasant with plenty of greenery and wild flowers in the jungle, but there are plenty of waterholes for the animals to frequent. Winters in the Terai warm to pleasant temperatures during the day, but may drop to around 10° C at night.
Kathmandu, because it is higher elevation, features cooler temperatures. It snows in Kathmandu about twice a century and should you be lucky enough to see it, know it will melt quickly. Winter is the coldest time, but a daily temperature will reach around 20° C with nights around 5° C. The rest of the year is warmer and pleasant, with lows in the Spring down to 18° to 20°C and highs around 32°. Summers do bring rain, but not as much as in the Terai.
All of our accommodations on the Luxury Jungle Expedition feature both a/c rooms which will offer heat in the cooler winter mornings.
Himalayan Planet Adventures takes environment issues quite seriously. This is our home, and we want to keep it pristine for generations to come. No non-biodegradable items are ever left in the jungles that can harm the wild animals or spoil the beauty of the environment. We pack out everything that will endanger the environment and dispose of it properly.
