Tour Details

Tatopani – “hot water” has long been a favorite stop for weary trekkers. Tatopani village gains its name from the hot springs below the village and near the new road. There are two stone pools on the banks of the river.

The carefully designed itinerary of eleven days provides the experience of viewing mountain panorama from Poon Hill which is a viewpoint for the spectacular Himalayan panorama extending from Dhaulagiri to Annapurna to Machhapuchhre;

along with the relaxation in the hot springs at Tatopani and then drive all the way to get immersed in the jungle activities in Chitwan National Park.

Tatopani is accessible both from Beni and Pokhara through jeep drive but we take a route from Pokhara – Tatopani – Beni and we drive to Chitwan on our way back to Kathmandu from Beni.

The Chitwan National Park has Sal forests that cover 70% of the area and there are about 600 species of plants and 450 species of birds.

Nepal is also home to the only significant number of one-horned rhinos and other endangered species like the Bengal Tiger, the gangetic dolphins and the gharial crocodiles.

There are altogether over 43 species of large mammals, 526 species of birds, 150 different types of butterflies, 126 species of fish and 49 species of reptiles in this wonderful Park.

Some of the sights include Kal Bhairav, Hanuman Dhoka, Taleju Temple, Kasthamandap and Kumari Ghar; home to the Living Goddess. Afterwards we visit Swoyambhunath Stupa, said to be one of the oldest Buddhist stupas in the world, which is majestically set high on a hill overlooking Kathmandu Valley. We proceed towards Pashupatinath Temple, a Hindu temple dedicated to Lord Shiva. This massive temple complex sits alongside the banks of the holy Bagmati River. Only Hindus are allowed to enter the courtyard of the temple, whereas tourists can see the temple from the eastern side of the Bagmati River.  Later we visit Boudhanath, a Buddhist Stupa said to be one of the largest in the world.

After breakfast we drive 41km/25 miles to Nayapul for the start of our trek. A steep trail from Nayapul directs us down to a bridge over a small stream to get to Birethanti, a large and prosperous village. From Birethanti we take the left branch of the trail on the west side of the bridge at the ACAP Checkpost where we need to show ACAP permit and TIMS Card. Following the trail through main streets of Birethanti, winding through bamboo forests and past a large waterfall and swimming hole we reach Sudami beyond a pasture used by caravans.

The trail climbs very steeply on a stone staircase that is said to have more than 3300 steps which continue to the large Magar village of Ulleri (2080m) and climbing gently through the pastures and cultivated fields the trail makes its way to deep forests to reach a hamlet of Banthanti. Crossing the magnificent oak and rhododendron forests the trail passes through two sparkling clear streams, a small ridge and another stream before making final climb to another Magar village of Nangathanti (2460m). About an hour past this village we reach Ghorepani where we can see eight different species of Nepal’s national flower rhododendron in the hillsides below Ghorepani.Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

It takes an hour to climb from here to Poon Hill, offering one of the best Himalayan viewpoints in Nepal from where spectacular Himalayan ranges with amazing sunrise view can be seen very closely. After observing the wonderful Himalayas we return to Ghorepani. After breakfast, we continue our journey to Tatopani. The trail makes a descend steeply to Chitre at 2420m.  As the trail drops down through the large and prosperous Magar village of Sikha, the hills are extensively terraced. From Shikha the trail descends gently to Ghara at 1780m. A further steep descent of 500m takes us to Ghar Khola where the trail crosses the river on a suspension bridge. We then make another climb up above the Kaligandaki River before crossing the river. As we turn north, it takes us to the Tatopani.

During this trek we came across to the beautiful Himalaya from Tatopani and then we drove to wildlife safari. We had fabulous time during this mix and match trek and trip. Sujan was very good to plan the trek. Alpine is highly recommended to friends and families.
