It was an anticipated morning when we gathered all our suitcases and headed to the airport to fly to Nepal.
The flight to Kathmandu is only 1 ½ hrs. The view of the Himalayas is breathtaking. Best seats for this flight? Left side of the aircraft, seats A & B. Pictures can't capture the height and the beauty of these majestic peaks. You …
On arrival in Chitwan National Park, we checked into our hotel after the very wet 5 hour drive down from Kathmandu! We went to speak reception to check our itinerary and see what activities we would be doing that afternoon, but due to the weather there wasn't much and they offered us a nature walk. Hmmmm. We both considered whether or not we …
... singing!! That weekend a group of us went away and walked up to a religious town called Manokamana! It was so good to get out of the cities and actually see some of the rural lifestyle!

On the walk up we met the cutest old couple Ramji and Sawitri that owned a wee shop on the way and sat and chatted to them for a while! It was great chat Ramji, was hilarious he made us all ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsMaruni Sanctuary Lodge Sauraha
The Maruni Lodge was great. Unfortunately you can no longer stay at the Tiger Tops Lodge so world renowned till the government stepped in and closed it down because it was inside the park parameters. Best part though is that Gauri Malakar was a manager at Tiger Tops so she will make it all perfect. Rooms comfortable. Quiet other than the noises of nature. Food excellent, gardens very nice. Shower is all in one with the bathroom...workable. Evening entertainment great. Wonderful stay.
