Chitwan National Park lies in Nepal’s subtropical Terai lowlands in the south of the country. It was Nepal’s first National Park, awarded World Heritage Site status in 1984.
Its dense jungle, marshy wetlands and rippling grasslands are a haven to wildlife such as the one-horned rhino, sloth bear, gharial, leopard, and the creature everyone hopes to catch a glimpse of – the elusive Royal Bengal tiger. We will also keep our eyes open for the many other species of animals and birds which live here, including several species of deer and monkey.
We explore this beautiful and enchanting habitat by jeep and dug-out canoe, and also visit a local community, where the way of life is very different to what we have experienced in the mountains of Nepal.

I had a great time once I had adjusted to the conditions which DA plan into the challenge very well with the acclimatization days

Jo was very organised, very controlled and keen to get everyone to reach their goal- I was very impressed and felt privileged to be in her guidance. We all had an amazing experience and will have memories to last a life time. I have never taken part on any challenging adventure, from start to finish I felt part of the group and looked forward to every moment. Talking to other groups we met, everyone was amazed. The local guides Ashuk and his group were great company and became friends forever. Changed my life for the better. Thank you Discover Adventure.

Taking on Everest Base Camp was tough but absolutely amazing at the same time. I had to dig deep plenty of times but to reach Base Camp was truly amazing. I've never felt so emotional taking on a challenge before but this one got me for various reasons. The reason behind taking it on to raise money in memory of my niece, Elena. But also the sheer enormity of what we'd achieved both personally and as a group. The stunning scenery we saw along the way was breathtaking and the people we met were amazing. Our DA Leader, Jo Bradshaw, was truly amazing and I cannot thank her enough for her support during the trek. She is truly an amazing lady and it was an honour to meet her and we felt so lucky to have her as our DA Guide. The rest of the crew were also amazing and we certainly couldn't have done it without them. When I think back to our trip it brings a tear to my eye and I feel lucky to have been part of it.
