We stayed at the jungle lodge for 3 nights, and we loved every minute there. My 11 year old daughter keeps asking when we can go back.
The cabins are old and rustic, and yes the electricity is limited. How wonderful to be off the grid!
We were able to keep our camera batteries charged, and really it was great to not have our phones nor computers distracting us from the animals and sounds!
We loved the elephant treks and bathing. We had a long walk through plains after a canoe ride. We saw wild Rhinos from the back of an elephant. Monkeys, birds and crocodiles galore.
It took about 4 1/2 hours from Kathmandu. The ride, although long, was interesting. We had a private car pick us up and bring us back. The car was old but fine. We were comfortable. We enjoyed catching glimpses of towns and villages, farmers and school kids walking home.
This spot, and the people at the lodge will stay with us for a very long time. Thank you Santosh, thank you all!
