Clients Reviews

The safari hotel was amazing! I really wouldn't have changed a thing. We knew we were in very good hands, and very very well prepared for what to expect. And of course, I love the type of adventurous trips you offer.

CO2 Footprint

000 (tCO2e)
tCO2 = Tonnes of Carbon Dioxide Equivalent

How we do it
As an ethical and responsible travel company, we reduce our carbon footprint by designing trips that are low carbon impact and carefully calculating the impact with the help of an environmental consultancy. We then buy carbon credit equivalents to offset all emissions that cannot be reduced including those resulting from our day-to-day business operations. Our offsetting is done through an energy efficient stoves project in Kenya. On request, every traveller receives their own PDF offset certificate post-travel. Wild Guanabana is the first carbon-neutral travel company in the Middle East & North Africa. Note: We do not sell or issue flight tickets ourselves so consequently we don't offset those emissions.

What does offsetting mean anyway?
It's a way of reducing your ecological impact by 'neutralizing' the impact of your carbon footprint. Actions associated with travel amount to around a third of greenhouse gas emissions worldwide. Carbon offsetting offers a solution to reduce the impact of your travel by purchasing carbon credits that are invested in activities that reduce CO2. While this doesn't erase all of the environmental impact, it does serve to help reinvest into the planet and contribute to activities which help its conversation. For more information on Carbon offsetting read more from our partners ERCC Carbon and our Sustainable Travel International.

    Upon your arrival, a Wild Guanabana representative will be waiting for you outside the airport gate to take you to the hotel.

  • Day 2: Gently Down The Stream (970m) - (B/L):

    Early in the morning, we’ll drive from Kathmandu to Pokhara, Nepal's picturesque lake city, for about 6-7 hours. Our bus will follow a winding road over the valley rim and will descend onto the Trisuli River where we’ll go rafting for 2-3 hours. After rafting, we will have lunch on the riverbank. The remainder of the journey is slow and steady as the road winds through villages and passing terraced fields before reaching our destination. Pokhara is best known for its tranquil atmosphere and the beauty of the surrounding countryside. Normally, we arrive by mid afternoon so you have time to explore or relax before preparing for the journey ahead. Tonight, we’ll have a light introduction to yoga to get us started and prepared for the many sessions to come. Overnight stay at Hotel Peninsula or Similar.

  • Day 3: Highway To Dhampus (1,750m). (B/L/D):

    We’ll start our day early on with an energizing yoga session for about an hour amidst beautiful scenery. After breakfast, we’ll take a 30-minute drive to Hyangja and begin walking towards Milan Chock. We will climb the ridge above the Yangri Khola Valley. We’ll pass through Hyengjakot and Dhital, completing about 4.5 hours of trekking. Here, the 1,750m elevation ensures you will enjoy incredible mountain views as you relax.

    Today, we’ll enjoy a yoga session with a beautiful view of Annapurna Fish tail and Dhaulagiri Mountain as well as many more Himalayan peaks as the sun rises and shines over their slopes. We’ll have breakfast then start our hike from Dhampus to Sarangkot via Naudanda for about 5-6 hours. We’ll start walking on a gently flat road for about 20 minutes then walk steep down almost 600 m passing local houses. We’ll cross the river on a suspension bridge over the Ghattekola, overlooking beautiful fields and a gorgeous forest area. Gradually, we’ll go up to Naudande where we’ll see a panoramic, breathtaking view of the Himalayas. We’ll have a short rest to take in the beautiful mountain view. When we start walking again along the ridge to Sarangkot, we’ll witness a beautiful view of Phewa lake and Pokhara City to the south and a superb view of Annapurna range, particularly Machapuchare (Fishtail peak).

After breakfast, we can either begin hiking down to Pokhara (827m) for approximately 3 hours, or you can add an optional paragliding session instead (contact us for more details, if interested). In the afternoon, we’ll head to explore Bindhyabasini Temple, which is known for its fabulous view of the city and mountain ranges. Catch a glimpse of the unique waterfall, Davis Fall, and be sure to ask about its legend when you’re there! If we still have time, we’ll go check out the interesting Gorkha Museum which focuses on the people and mountains of the area. Overnight stay at Hotel Peninsula or Similar.
