Bird Watching Tour
Hi, I’m Jenny from UK I came here on June 2015 with my friends. We visited many national parks including Chitwan National Park, Koshi Tappu Reserve and many others. The food and accommodation provided by the hotel were great and that jungle safari and bird viewing was awesome and the guide has knowledge about the birds and he explain us everything. I would like to thank Nepal Dream Path team for the well management of the tour.
