The Pokhara - Chitwan Circuit
Best of Nepal in three Tour operators in Nepal offer excellent packages to visitors for exploring the beauty of the country in a short time. But for the traveler with a tight schedule, the 2 nights/3days safari into one thrilling circuit, is an unbeatable way to experience the rich diversity of the country.
Pokhara, with its laid-back atmosphere, has a mild climate. The mountains reflect on the beautiful Phewa Lake, and an array of restaurants strewn across the lake-side serve varieties of international cuisine.
After arriving in Pokhara (30 minutes by air or six hours' drive from Kathmandu), visitors begin with a bout of boating on Phewa Lake. The pure pleasure that comes with feeling the water underneath while watching the conspicuous Machhapuchhre (Fish-tail) Mountain surrounded by the giants of the Annapurna range is out of this world.
After a few hours of boating, a sight-seeing tour of Pokhara is next on the agenda. The enigmatic Devin's Falls is a few minute's drive away. The Pardi Khola is the outflow from Phewa Lake, and at Devin's Fall it disappears into a mysterious cavern in the ground, creating magnificient sprays. Another attraction is the Seti Gandaki river, which flows right through the heart of the town. The limestone in the soil gives the river its milky color. At certain spots, the Seti Gandaki runs completely underground. There are a number of Tibetan settlements around Pokhara which sell handicraft goods & Tibetan carpets.
The four-hour drive to Chitwan the next day consists of more thrilling views along the Narayani river. The lively atmosphere of the plains of Nepal becomes more and more evident as one reaches the Royal Chitwan National Park, considered among the best wildlife parks in Asia.
Many jungle resorts have cropped up inside and outside the park. They offer all the modern amenities, imaginable, but usually in a beautiful village-style house. Your tour begins with an elephant safari. Riding the back of an elephant, you penetrate the deep jungle. Visitors might catch a sight of a rhino here, a barking deer there, and, on a lucky day, even the Royal Bengal tiger. Over 50 species of mammals are found here. The park is also a heaven for bird watching with over 525 species, including the endangered Bengal florican, giant hornbill and the black-and-white stork, nesting here.
After a couple of hours of elephant ride, visitors can splash around in the swimming pools that are inside many of the resorts. Dinner is followed by a Tharu stick dance. Tharus are indigenous inhabitants of the jungles, and their rich culture manifests itself in this joyous dance they out for the guests. The rhythmic clatter of the sticks, accompanied by invigorating music, even invites the guests to join the fray, which many do with zest and relish.
The next morning, visitors can go on a jungle walk with a trained guide who shows them the myriad of flora and fauna around them. Alternatively, they can choose a jeep safari, which goes deeper into the park to encounter even more wildlife. Then visitors return to Kathmandu, which is another four-hour ride.
The three-day Pokhara-Chitwan tour is one of the best ways to experience the diverse beauty and culture of Nepal. It's a great way to take in quite a bit of the country, ranging from the lakes and mid-hills in Pokhara to the vibrant wildlife of the Terai, in the shortest possible time.

 

Exploring attractions of Sauraha
Covering a small area on the banks of the Rapti River in Chitwan District, Sauraha has become one of the over-saturated tourist destinations. As a place having its own distince identity, Sauraha has been a central focus among visitors visiting Chitwan and Royal Chitwan National Park. Many factors have contributed to the present over-saturated condition of this tourist destination. One of the reasons behind it is that it lies in the vicinity area of the Royal Chitwan National Park, one of the World Heritage Sites of the country, which attracts on an average of 100,000 visitors every year. Visitors visit the park for various purposes such as seeing wildlife and making a jungle safari. They can also involve themselves in the activities like sight seeing, jungle walk, trekking to religious areas, bird watching, trip to elephant breeding camp, canoe-riding, jeep safari, elephant ride, among others. 
Apart from the attractions of flora and fauna, typical traditional Tharu cultural dances performed in the evening at hotels also lure visitors. As a major doorway to the Royal Chitwan National Park, almost 70 percent visitors of the total figure enter into the park from Sauraha. The Royal Chitwan national Park is a home to one-horned rhinos that are found only in Nepal and India in the world.
Sauraha occupies an important position from the point of view of tourism after Kathmandu and Pokhara. It is second popular destination for the Indian visitors. At present, there are more than 50 small and big resort type hotels that offer accommodation facilities for around 700 clients everyday. Most of the hotels are clustered in the Bachhauli Village Development Committee.
Despite the tremendous efforts of the locals to promote this area as a popular tourist destination, helicopters and other tourism entrepreneurs have complaints that the helicopters outside the RCNP have not been provided equal incentives as hotels and resorts inside the park.

Elephant ride
It is one of the major activities. It is conducted in the RCNP, and the community forests lying in the Buffer Zone. The two community forests lying in the Buffer Zone. The two community forests - Kumrose and Bagmara - which are situated near the RCNP, offer the services of elephant ride to visitors. During their 2/3 hours of trip in the forest, they may see different kinds of wild animals like one-horned rhinos and deer grazing in the field, beer, leopard, peacocks and birds of different species and many other animals. From the back of giant elephants, they can be closer to grazing rhinos and take photographs. It they are lucy enough, they can even see tiger and other nocturnal animals in their trip.

Canoe riding in the Rapti River

Thise who want to see wildlife in the park can use jeeps. During their five hours of jeep safari, they can take photographs of wildlife. According to the local hoteliers, the government has no clear policy regarding the permission of running the jeeps. The government used to provide 10 jeeps for the purpose of jeep safari in the past but it has adopted a new policy regarding it. From April this year, only hotels are allowed to run only five jeeps a day for offering jeep safari service to visitors.
Jungle Walk
Visitors having enough courage can go for jungle walk for short or long time. But the risk has to be taken by visitors themselves.
