Tiger Tops Tharu Lodge

Chitwan National Park

Nepal

A short bullock-cart ride from the Narayani River, the natural boundary between Chitwan National Park and the surrounding townships, takes you to the doors of Tharu Lodge. Emulating the longhouse style of local Tharu architecture and built from indigenous materials, the lodge overlooks idyllic Terai landscapes, ensuring that nothing but the sounds of the forest interrupt your stay. Dine under a mango tree; then sway in a hammock in the afternoon breeze after a game drive. Try a bird watching tour - the lodge’s naturalists have recorded more than 300 species of birds in the surrounding habitats. You can get to observe and know the lodge’s twelve resident elephants as they wake, graze, bathe, play and feed, and engage with the mahouts´ daily work. Exploring the villages by foot or bullock cart is the best way to experience rural Nepali life.
