- This is an absolutely full on trip which is an attack on all of your senses.
Our tour leader "Sanjeev" was brilliant - we were there at the start of the currency "situation" and he did everything he possibly could to ease the worry and help us out, as well as the more normal aspects of the tour leader's job like keeping us all together and making sure we packed in as many of the optional activities that we could.
We were lucky enough to see a tiger (ok it was from a distance) in Ranthambore and saw a one horned Rhino up close in Chitwan - but every destination on this intinerary was full of amazing things to see - from the spectacle of Varanasi to the spectacular views of the Annapurna Range from Pokhara.
My only niggle would be the tour notes should be updated with more realistic travel times between some of the destinations. The journey from Pokhara to Kathmandu was quoted as 5 hours on the notes - it was nearer 10 which is due to the road currently being under construction, (and has been for the last 2 years and is unlikely to be finished in the next 2)
All in all, a great holiday - highly recommended.
