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.

Absolutely superb team lead by Dinesh. You're welcomed as family from the outset, kept well fed and watered, and looked after from the first to the last step on the trail.

I am so, so delighted that we had a local team guiding us on our Everest Base Camp trek. Dinesh is an outstanding leader and added immeasurable value to the experience by sharing his knowledge of Nepalese history and culture. I can’t stress enough how much this enhanced our trip. The crew were beyond kind, and the fact that we achieved 100% success in a safe climb and decent is entirely down to their experience. EBC is not for the fainthearted but is simply the best trekking experience and DA delivered more than I had hoped for. We were all tested during the trip, but this added to the sense of achievement. We are already looking for our next challenge!

It’s very difficult to sum up this challenge. It really was outstanding and in a few words I’m not sure I can do it justice. The team leader, Dinesh, the porters and mountain guides were exemplary, and we all felt safe and looked after at all times. I arrived at Gatwick Airport slightly broken from the pressures of modern-day life, and I hoped the trip would help me find a little peace. I was not to be disappointed! It wasn't a holiday, it wasn’t a trip, it wasn’t even a challenge, it was an amazing adventure shared with amazing people and if I could, I would repeat it all again tomorrow. When people ask me, I’m not embarrassed to tell them it was life changing! I will be back!
