Encounter elephants, tigers, and one-horned rhinos! Jyamchang, local certified guide, leads this 3-day tour of Chitwan National Park in Nepal.
Have you ever wanted to see a royal bengal tiger? What about a one-horned rhinoceros? You can see all this and more on my 3-day tour of Chitwan National Park in Nepal!
Chitwan National Park is located in the subtropical lowlands of Terai. Here there is an abundance of nature and wildlife that people from around the world come to visit. The park offers nature walks, elephant safaris, and jeep and boat tours. Inside the park you have the opportunity to see many unique species of animals, including leopards, sloth bears, monkeys, and crocodiles. There are also many different species of butterflies and over 450 kinds of colorful birds!
On my 3-day tour, you’ll have the chance to explore the park as well as experience some traditional Nepalese culture. First, you’ll listen to a safari briefing and visit a village of the ethnic Tharu people. Then you’ll have the opportunity to participate in many different activities within the park. Throughout the tour I’ll make sure you see as much wildlife as possible. Keep your eyes peeled and your cameras ready!
Within Chitwan National Park there are 6 premier jungle resorts. These resorts are ideal for experiencing the true safari atmosphere of the Terai. Jungle activities are just a step away, and you might even spot wildlife from your room.

Transfer from Kathmandu along the scenic Prithivi Highway. In Chitwan, a tour representative will meet you and take you to your hotel. There you’ll have time to freshen up and have a welcome drink. Then you’ll have lunch and listen to a safari briefing by your nature guide. In the afternoon we’ll visit a village of the ethnic Tharu people. You can take a short hike or ox ride through the village and visit the museum. Then watch the sunset from the riverbank. Finally, we’ll have dinner and see a program of Nepalese culture at the hotel.
After breakfast you’ll have the opportunity to enjoy many different adventure excursions in the park. These might include a canoe ride, a jungle walk looking for tigers, leopards, and other wildlife, or a visit to an elephant breeding farm.
Take advantage of Chitwan’s great birdwatching opportunities with a morning birdwatching tour. Chitwan attracts a large number of birds, including several endangered species. Return to your hotel for breakfast and then return to Kathmandu.
I come from the East part of Nepal, between Makalu (8,470m) and Kangchenjunga (8,586m). I am IFMGA/UIAGM fully certified since 2009. I have 20+ experience of climbing in the Himalaya. I’ve climbed Mt Everest (7 times), Mt Cho Oyu in Tibet (2 times), Mt Ama Dablam (8 times), Baruntse (2 times), Island peak (15 times), Lobuche (10 times), Pokhalde (10 times), Mera peak (10 times), Mehera peak (5 times), Chulu far east (3 times), Mt Shishapangma until camp 3, Manaslu until 7200m, and Chulu West, Lhakpa ri and other another few more times.
I also have extensive experience of climbing in Europe: France, Italy, UK and Norway (where I work for three months during the summer as a glacier guide).
I'm also a technical mountain rescue coordinator for the 8000's.
It will be my pleasure to guide you through your journey whether for trekking, peak climbing or any mountaineering expedition. Get in touch and let's discuss about the purpose of your trip.
After a year and a half of planning, a new attempt was made on Ama Dablam. This time a third person joined the climbing party. Acclimatisation on Lobuche gave us a foretaste of what the numerous pitches on Ama Dablam\'s steep terminal slopes would feel like. Good weather conditions and a swift Alpine style climb to C1, C2 and finally the summit concluded this project. Thank you so much Jyamchang for guiding us up there! The timing of the climb (before Autumn\'s commercial expeditions), choice of porters and additional logistics were once again very professional.

Excellent guide, à la fois attentionné et motivant. Il a su s\'adapter à notre rythme tout en nous stimulant suffisamment pour qu\'on atteigne nos objectifs quotidiens. Il nous faisait un briefing journalier avec le programme du lendemain et ses difficultés éventuelles et une vérification de notre adaptation à l\'altitude (pouls, saturation en oxygène). Dès le premier jour, il a tout pris en charge tant du point de vue de l\'organisation des transports que des hôtels sans faux pas.
As some famous mountaineer once said about his Sherpa climbing partner, Jyamchang belongs to a new generation of Nepali guides who really love to climb. For them, mountaineering isn’t just about business. And that’s the reason why we got along very well whilst attempting the ascent of Ama Dablam in April 2017. We were lucky enough to be able to meet beforehand in Chamonix for a thorough check-up of the equipment and a briefing on the various logistics. I found him to be that kind of straight-to-the-point, smiling and organized person I was hoping to have as a guide and partner for an ambitious climb above 6000 meters, which I had only performed once before (on Island Peak). We met at the airport in Kathmandu and joined a good friend of mine and his trekking guide, who accompanied us during the acclimatization trip across the 3 passes and on to EBC. This gave us plenty of time to get our bodies accustomed to altitude. Jyamchang and I performed a daily health check-up to monitor the effects of altitude, a routine which I found to be very professional. We had agreed during our first Skype discussions that we were going to climb alpine style. That is minimum logistics, no fixed ropes etc. The idea of climbing a difficult mountain such as Ama Dablam without these facilitating artefacts strongly appealed to me, and I appreciated that Jyamchang pushed for this approach of the climb. This was not just pulling the client to the top of the mountain and then collecting the summit bonus. Unfortunately, due to poor weather conditions the day before summit day, we were unable to reach the summit. However, I found that Jyamchang’s attitude during the difficult descent with rapidly degrading weather conditions, and another party that we had to help descend, was again showing a professional and competent approach to the mountain environment. All in all, we had a great time in the beautiful surroundings of the Khumbu valley and may be climbing together again in a future expedition. I can strongly recommend Jyamchang for trekking and climbing elsewhere in the world (Jyamchang also guides in Norway). Martin, 32 - Belgium
