Annapurna Base Camp – Special Offer!

Share this post:

We are pleased to announce a special offer for our Annapurna Base Camp trek. We have added a new date (arriving in Kathmandu on the 10th April 2013) and have added on a rafting and safari trip at the end of the trek. The normal price for this trek and the extra trips is a maximum of £1119 per person (exc flights). For this trip only, the maximum price is £947 (exc. flights), saving you a massive £172!

What’s more when you join an Oyster trek, whether you are an individual or group of friends, you will pay the same price as everyone else on that Oyster trek meaning, the more people that sign up, the cheaper it gets for everyone! We currently have two people signed up for this trek and it would be great to get a big group heading out for our last Annapurna Base Camp trek before the end of the trekking season.

You will be in Nepal for a total of 19 days. Accommodation is included throughout the trip and the rafting/safari portion includes all meals as well so really is good value and an excellent way to see more of Nepal during your stay.

Rafting: Nepal is known as the ‘land of Rivers’ and provides one of the best and most thrilling white-water rafting experiences in the world, graded one to seven on the Colorado River scale. The 2-day rafting expedition takes rafters on a ride down the white waters of Trisuli River providing one of the most spectacular views and a thrilling experiences of a lifetime.

Trisuli River: Named after the trident of Lord Shiva – Trisuli, is formed from the melting snow of Ganesh and Langtang Himals. Trisuli is the most popular river for white-water rafting, be it for beginners or experienced alike.

Royal Chitwan National Park is located in the Tarai-southern plains of Nepal. Chitwan – derived from the word ‘Chitravan’ – meaning picturesque, was used for hunting trips by the British and Nepalese aristocrats in the 19th century. As the hunger for land increased, deforestation led to the gradual decline of flora and fauna. This led to the establishment of the sanctuary in 1964 and only then in 1973 it was declared a National Park. Today the National Park, with an area of nearly 900 sq. km, can boast about having the finest variety of flora and fauna, including the Asian one-horned rhinoceros, Bengal tigers, monkeys and elephants, in the world. During your stay in Chitwan you will go on an Elephant safari, visit the elephant breeding centre, take a trip down the river on a dugout canoe, visit a local tribal village, go bird watching and go on a jungle walk.
