Combine two popular activities and see some of the highlights of Nepal on this combined 12-day tour. Trek to the monastery in Tengboche during the first part of the trip and then experience a jungle safari in Chitwan afterward.

This trip starts with a mountain flight to Lukla, then trek up to Phakding, Namche and Tengboche Monastery and then trek back to Lukla and fly back Kathmandu. We then drive all the way to Chitwan where we immerse ourselves in the jungle activities in Chitwan National Park in Chitwan. After 2 nights in Chitwan, we drive along the Trisuli river back to Kathmandu.

On the Everest monasteries trek, visit the high valleys of the Khumbu with time to explore villages and monasteries and to sample the incredible hospitality of the Sherpa people. This is an exciting trek to one of the oldest monasteries and an excellent choice for those who have a short amount of time. If the weather cooperates, you'll get great views of the world's highest mountain, Everest.

Chitwan National Park is spread over an area of 932 sq kms and offers protection to 56 species of mammals including the one-horned rhinoceros, Bengal tiger, leopard, sloth bear, wild elephant, striped hyena, Gangetic dolphin and wild bison. There are estimated to be 470 species of mammals, over 500 species of birds, 126 species of fish, 150 species of butterflies and 47 species of reptiles in the park. See how many you can spot during your park visit!

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Find answers to the most frequently asked questions about this tour.
  • How much money do I need to bring with me?

    Your personal budget obviously depends on your spending habits and what is included in your trip cost. If accommodation is included, but meals are not, we would suggest that you bring around 30 USD per day per person for meals. Having a hot shower or charging your device sometimes costs extra. There are also sometimes small crafts/souvenirs to buy along the trekking route which you may want to bring extra money for. Also, consider whether you would be staying in Kathmandu or Pokhara before or after your trek.

  • Is quarantine in Nepal in effect for arriving visitors?

    In response to the current Covid situation, rules for arriving visitors may change frequently and sometimes without notice. Please check the government travel pages and advisories of your home country and the official website of the Nepal Tourism board here.

  • What happens if someone gets altitude sickness, does the rest of the group continue on?

    It depends on the situation. Sometimes, altitude sickness can be treated and the trekker may wish to continue. If not, the rest of the group can continue on if they want and the sick person can descend.

  • How does it work with a porter?

    Generally, the porter will pick up the baggage in the morning and drop it at the hotel in the evening. You will not always be walking with your porter or have access to your bag during the day, while trekking. 

  • Is a visa on arrival available?

    Typically, yes. However, in response to the current Covid situation, rules for arriving visitors may change frequently and sometimes without notice. It may be necessary to obtain a tourist visa in your own country before travel. For updated information on visas, please check the Nepal Tourism Board and the Government of Nepal Immigration websites.
