ネパール体験・自然交流

概観

広大なカトマンズ盆地は世界遺産の宝庫です。その中には,パタン,バクタプル,チャングナラヤンなどがあり,歴史の深さと衰退を物語ります。南部都市・ルンビニは,仏陀の生誕地として知られ,多くの名高い歴史的建築物も見せてくれます。その中には,アショク王の石造,マヤ妃の石造などがあります。

首都からわずか120 km 西方のインド国境沿いに,広大な手付かずのジャングルが横たわっています。ベンガルトラ,サイ,鹿,熊,ヒョウ,ニシキヘビ,ワニ,さらには350種以上もの鳥たちがその自然の豊かさを象徴しています。象の背中に乗ってジャングルを探訪するエレファント・ライドは,本当の自然に触れる人気のアトラクションです。このツアーに3~4日を要します。

湖の都・ポカラを基点にするミニトレッキングコースです。二泊(カトマンズからは四泊)からお一人でも催行可能です。マテャプチュレやアンナプルナの雄姿が見事です。コースはダンプスも経由し,人気のアンナプルナエリアの一部を手軽に楽しむことができます。

カトマンズから4時間ドライブした所に、白波立つラフティングを楽しめるトゥリシュリ河があります。 ラフティングがお好みなら、始めから予定に組むこともできますし、ポカラへ行く大型バスを途中下車することもできます。 その後、チトワンへ行くか、カトマンズに戻ることもできます。
