If it's Bengal tiger you want, then Chitwan's the place to go. There's also one-horned Asian rhinos, leopards, monkeys and sloth bears (often described as 'shaggy, dusty and unkempt' - much like you are 12 days in the mountains).(Was Annapurna & Chitwan)

Tour Itinerary

Day 1-2: Kathmandu

Feed your spiritual side at Bodhnath Stupa, one of the biggest Buddhist shrines in the world. Then feed your hungry side at Yak Cafe (not very popular with actual yaks).

Day 3-6: Annapurna Trek

Pokhara is a nice change from Kathmandu, with less traffic and more chocolate croissants. And with all the trekking you're about to do, it's practically guilt-free indulgence.

Day 7-8: Whitewater Rafting

Strap on your helmet and your life jacket and hit the Seti River rapids. They're pretty gentle and will take us the 30 kilometres to Chitwan. Stop to swim in the thermally heated water and tease each other's helmet hair.

Day 9-10: Chitwan National Park

Rhino's and tigers and sloth bears, oh my. Hopefully you brought binoculars or you'll have to borrow a pair from your new buddies (try bribing them with food). Take a bit of free time to go on a jeep, canoe or walking safari.

Day 11-12: Kathmandu

How many tigers did you see? Swap stories (and tell a few white lies) with the other travellers back in Kathmandu. There's plenty of time to sip on banana lassis and wish you didn't have to go back to work.
