The tour is suitable for people of all ages, including children and parents, and is classified as a beginner level in terms of difficulty.

While the tour is not physically demanding, travelers should be aware of potential weather and climate-related issues and prepare accordingly. The Chitwan Trip is considered a short and non-strenuous trip, making it a popular choice for families with kids, also known as the Chitwan Family Trip.

What is the best time to visit Chitwan National Park?

The ideal time to plan a tour to Chitwan is from late September to May, as this period is generally free from monsoons. If you are not comfortable with hot and humid weather, then October to March is a suitable time to visit Chitwan.

On the other hand, if you are accustomed to and can tolerate hot weather, visiting Chitwan in April-May is also an option. However, it is important to note that the temperature during this time can exceed 40 °C.

Chitwan is also a popular destination during winter, which falls between November, December, and January.

Additionally, pollution from industrial activities, traffic, and waste burning can mix with the fog and create a smog that may negatively impact the overall experience of the tour.

We had an amazing Mardi Himal trek. We booked last minute and we were dealt with promptly and professionally. The trek was fully customisable including a stay in a lovely hotel and bus rides to and from Kathmandu. Our guide Amir was awesome and made our trek everything we wanted. Thank you so much!

We hebben echt genoten van onze trekking naar ABC. Jammer genoeg waren er echter overal problemen met de kamer. We hebben dan expres via een agency geboekt en meer betaald, zodat we zeker een kamer overal zouden krijgen. Dit bleek dan een probleem te zijn, omdat er niets op voorhand was geboekt. Ook hebben we last minute (letterlijk 5 min voor de 1e ontmoeting) een bericht van Hari gekregen dat we een andere guide zouden krijgen. Hierbij kregen we geen uitleg. De nieuwe guide had geen EHBO kit mee en wist ook helemaal niet wat allemaal inbegrepen was in onze boeking. Dit was opzich geen probleem, maar het leek plots allemaal niet meer zo goed georganiseerd als het beloofde te zijn. Ondanks dit hebben we echt wel genoten van onze tocht en zijn we blij dat we het gedaan hebben.
