This eco resort is really a nature reserve in disguise!
The staff here are on a mission to conserve, encourage and protect the rich ecological heritage of this beautiful area of the Terrai region.
My partner and I were lucky enough to spend three wonderful nights here. The manager Dinesh took us for nature walks around the site and really made the place come alive! We saw antelopes, eagles, cranes and kingfishers, all within a short stroll of our lodge next to the river.
Real expertise and passion like this is hard to come by. If you are a nature lover this place is essential. If you want cable tv and shopping opportunities this is not for you!
The lodge was a good sized semi detached with a nice veranda. The resort uses solar power and wood burners for the showers etc. but also has generator backup. The food was healthy and hearty, made from local produce. After dinner we enjoyed quality time relaxing and chatting with the crew around a bonfire.
The resort is 10mins cycle from the north end of the Lumbini complex (bikes are available at the resort) which has got be the best way to explore the grounds without a guide. Also, as the resort fronts onto the main road, we had no problems catching our coach to Chitwan which Dinesh arranged for us.
Gentlemen, we salute you!
Good luck for the future of the resort and you're continued important work.
Thank you all for such great company,
You're the best!
