A Journey of Life (Chitwan-Sauraha From Jan. 5th-8th/2011)

My Friends Andrees de Ruiter & his Mother Hanne invited us (my wife, son & I) to Chitwan-Sauraha tour. We left for that trip on 5th January 2011 by tourist bus catched at the Pokhara tourist bus station & did drive about 5 hours Sauraha including breakfast & pea break on the way. It was very comfortable & safe driving.

When we arrived at Sauraha’s bus park, our Friend Andrees was waiting for us since long time, and it was so good to see him there, first he took us to the Elephant Dung paper Factory was so nice to see experience that how those people can make such a nice & useful stuffs from it. Elephant eats such a grass with so much fibers, so it’s very easy & plenty of fibers making paper, with little machine put some chemical & after some process into the big pot of water & large paper sized sieve & sift it, take out need 3-4 hours sun shine then it’s ready.

We did drive to Jungle sun set hotel, at the entrance gate our Friend Hanne was welcoming for us, it was so warm & pleasant to see her again. We had so good Nepali set daal bhaat with aachar & yogurt! I really ate a lots because it was so good!
Same day Andrees took us to ride on Camel was life’s first Experience! Wow I felt very good & enjoyed so much and Maina & Shyam as well. Then we did drive to Elephant breeding center was so nice to see & specially the twin young of an elephant (Chhaawaa), which is rarely get born.
In the evening we got together for dinner & got to seat around wood burning fire was so nice & warm!

2nd day we went for Jungle walk about 6 hours, was fantastic! I did not expect to see the rhino such a close distance! Was Great View! Wow!! Then we saw hundreds of type of birds, crocodile, alligator, python, wild boar, spotted deer, monkey, wild chicken etc.
In the evening we went to another restaurant (have been running belong to Dutch Woman) and had a dinner, after it we went to seat around the fire again & heard & sang some sentimental song with the guitar player guy come from ktm, was very fun to join him.
3rd day we went for Elephant jungle safari was great: we had seen also many types of wild animals: for example rhino with a little young calf, antelope deer, spotted deer, wild boar, wild chicken, peacock, monkey etc.
On 4th day after breakfast together with Hanne & Andrees, we had to separated, at 9:00 o’clock we had to drive to Sauraha tourist bus station, then drive to Pokhara by tourist bus was very good & safely arrived home. Same day our Friends Andrees & Hanne drive to ktm via Daman, which is one of the best driving roads to ktm for Mountain & beautiful landscape scenery.

It is owned by three professional trekking guides (Prem, Sukra and Maina) in Pokhara. They are more than one and half decade experienced in trek and tour leading throughout the Himalayas of Nepal. Prem is one of the NATT~book (New/Natural Annapurna Trekking Trail) writers with Andrees de Ruiter in Germany, www.nepal-dia.de

PNT is a big different than other trekking agencies in Nepal, how?

I've seen many agency or company owners and managers in Nepal, who have never been to Annapurna or Everest; still designing your program!!

Our agency manager Sukra Rai is a most competent trekking guide as well, that’s why he has all kind of knowledge regarding the trek and tour including NATT. Therefore; three of us can design all your programs and lead the tour is a perfect combination.

Our staffs are well trained; most of them are involved marking and finding the NATT trails including the Annapurna Seven Passes Trek, North Annapurna Base Camp, newly designed the Lalupate Trail and all major treks in Nepal. They are well equipped and ensured with their insurance. Also most of them are skilled with Massage Therapy; during the trip if anyone requested for it, they may easily available. To entertain clients, they can perform singing and dancing as well as few of them can play bamboo flute and Nepali traditional drum. Most of them are English speaking, few of them can speak Korean and Chinese.

Also our team is working for EEF (earthquake emergency fund), and delivered many relief aids to the affected families mainly in Gorkha and Dhading. We have built 8 houses in Gorkha and handover for the families who did lost homes from the last earthquakes in Nepal. https://www.facebook.com/prem.rai2/media_set?set=a.1583433211698806&type=3

Four of them for couple, one twin bed and one single. Every room has private porch, cupboard, 24 hour hot shower with the attached bath and toilet and free Wi-Fi service. It's good to sit at the peaceful roof-top garden with the dramatic view of the para-glider over Sarangkot and the background scenery of Machhapuchre Himal including the surrounding green hills, villages, the Fewa Lake and the Stupa (World Peace Pegoda) in the west.

It is located at Lakeside - 6, Khahare Marga (street no: 19) near the Khahare Chowk (about 300 meters far from the lake shore), same building of Fishtail Paragliding and you can Google PREMS NEPAL TREK right behind the hotel Mandap and Tropicana.

Also a perfect guest house for the budget travellers. On request we prepare Nepali breakfast and if anyone interested for a short cooking course of Nepali Thali (veg and none-veg) you can learn and cook it yourself with us at our kitchen.
