CHITWAN NATIONAL PARK
Chitwan National Park is a popular destination for visitors wanting to have a good experience of the region’s wildlife which covers 932 sq. km. in the flat lowland region of southern Nepal. It is one of the most important sub-tropical parks of Nepal with endangered Royal Bengal tiger, Greater One-horned rhinoceros, Gangetic dolphin (Platanista gangetica), Wild Asian elephant, Gaur, Golden Monitor lizard, Gharial crocodile and many more. It has 6 premier jungle resorts scattered inside its boundaries. The falling rhino (less than 200) and tiger (less than 30) populations in the present park region, focused attention on the Chitwan region and in 1963 the southern two-thirds of the park were declared rhino sanctuary. Since 1963 wildlife populations and ecosystems have been rebounding. In 1973 Chitwan became Nepal's first National Park. The relatively pristine state of the modern park and its unique ecosystems prompted UNESCO to declare the park a World Heritage site in 1984.

ROCK CLIMBING
Rock climbing is a sport in which participants climb up or across natural rock formations or man-made rock walls. The goal is to reach the summit of a formation or the endpoint of a pre-defined route. Rock climbing is similar to scrambling (another activity involving the scaling of hills and similar formations), but climbing is generally differentiated because of the use of hands to support the climber's weight as well as to provide balance. Rock climbing is a physically and mentally demanding sport, one that often tests a climber's strength, endurance, agility, and balance along with his or her mental control. It can be a dangerous sport and knowledge of proper climbing techniques and usage of specialized climbing equipment is crucial for the safe completion of routes. Because of the wide range and variety of rock formations around the world, rock climbing has been separated into several different styles and sub-disciplines that are described below.

MOUNTAIN FLIGHT
We recommend a mountain flight for travelers that want to be in the camera range of the highest peaks in the world. . In just a short time, you will be experiencing the Himalayas at such close range it will seem as though you could reach out and touch them. You will have a panoramic encounter with the highest majestic Mountains on earth. Cruising this close to the awe-inspiring massifs of rock and ice is a cut-of-this-world experience. You can enjoy a seemingly endless chain of snowcapped peaks as you fly above clouds, over glaciers and lakes, rivers and gorges from window. The clear, non-tinted window offers a great opportunity to experience and photograph the aerial view of the many mountains along with the Kathmandu valley.
