Nepal is known as an outdoor enthusiast paradise due to some of the most spectacular trekking routes in the world, having eight of the highest mountains over 8000 meters in altitude and what seems like endless 6,000-meter snow-capped peaks. By walking on foot from one remote village to the next, one truly experiences the exquisite landscape and culture that Nepal has to offer. Therefore, we designed an itinerary for the All Nepal Experience Tour for those who want to experience Nepal in a short time frame with multiple activities. For those who can't go to high mountains to explore, this itinerary is perfect to explore the natural beauty of Nepal, from the grand Himalayas to the low-land Terai region of Chitwan National Park.

                        The tour was incredibly well organized and accommodated continuously to give us the best opportunity to maximize the marvelous views. I am not normally one for pre-arranged group trips but this tour was excellent. Rugged Trails was adaptive and strived to ensure every meal and bed on the trip was the best possible option, providing a clear advantage over other operators. Their supreme knowledge and experience of the region were clearly evident, offering insightful information along the way.

                        Rugged Trails Nepal rocks! My recent trip to Chitwan and Pokhara was made even better thanks to Rugged Trails Nepal's expert guidance and knowledge of the country. Nirajan, the director of Rugged Trails Nepal has a knack for being able to effortlessly and quickly arrange trips at the drop of a hat if needed. You can trust him and his guides to get the job done and to go that extra mile for all guests and clients.
                        He was able to arrange a jungle safari and river cruise in Chitwan National Park according to my physical limitations as well as an exciting paragliding experience at Pokhara.
                        Nirajan's extensive network in Nepal and his experienced pool of guides will not only ensure your safety during easy or challenging trips within the country, but they also try very hard to ensure your journey is as smooth as butter.
