Elephant Ride - 3 Days


Nepal has majestic mountains, treks, and Buddhist monks, but who imagines that one can also escape into the jungle and even see one of the most majestic felines there the Bengal tiger. Nothing better to end our trip in Nepal than spending a few days of escape and relaxation in the heart of the Chitwan jungle, in search of wild animals, because you know we love it.

Tips and good addresses for visiting Chitwan National Park

How long to visit Chitwan?

We stayed there for two nights, and frankly, it was express. If you have no choice and the timing of your vacation is too tight, it’s ok, but if you have it, then 3 nights are more pleasant and relaxing.

What to do and what to see in Chitwan?

You should know that in Chitwan, the programs are very packaged and organized by the hotels. No matter which hotel you choose, everyone offers something similar.

In 3 days, 2 nights, account of our stay in Chitwan:

After six buses from Pokhara, on sometimes (very) hazardous roads ^^, we were rather super happy to arrive at our destination. We set foot at the “station” of Sauraha, a slightly larger village near the national park. Everything is well organized and each lodge awaits its guests. A few minutes later, it’s a pleasure to be able to put down your bag and discover the places of our lodge. The warm, slightly humid air does us a lot of good, after the cool mountain temperatures. We’re going to be able to relax… Even if we didn’t think we were going to run that much.

  • We are taken to spend the late afternoon in a Tharu village, the natives of this region of Nepal. We walk between the fields of mustard in bloom (this yellow is intense.), Greet the women sorting the rice harvest, the children and teenagers who come back from school. We discover the colorful houses and the rhythm of life of these rural populations. If one has the impression of making a good one in the past, there is a striking contrast between the old and the new generation which is already connected to the modern world. Smartphones are almost in all the hands of young people, while their parents and grandparents are busy with the task in the fields, surprising.

The Terai, in southern Nepal, spans the entire length of the country. This plain has been largely cleared in the past, hence the need to create reserves or organize safaris. These are remarkably rich and protect ecosystems unique in the world. The alternation of meadows, bushes, and forests is home to many plant and animal species, some of which are endangered.

Safari Nepal The discovery safari with specialized guides, by marches, boat trips, elephant rides or even jeep, will allow you to get as close as possible to birds, leopards, rhinos, crocodiles and perhaps Gange’s tigers or dolphins. You will also discover the villages and meet the local population

For a safari, Chitwan Park is the most accessible from Kathmandu or Pokhara. It is very well structured for the reception of visitors, and the lodges and hotels are comfortable. It is easy to incorporate this safari as part of a cultural circuit or after a trek or a rafting trip on the Trisuli or SetiKhola rivers. You will be full board as soon as you arrive on site.

Frequently asked Questions

What about battery charging and hot shower facilities?

Yes, you can charge batteries en route. Charger should be brought. There are hot shower facilities as well. You may have to pay certain amount for both ($1-$2). Negotiate. Also, hot water facility could be free at lower elevation.

What about internet access?

Yes. Internet can be accessed in most places. Sometimes, there might be some technical problems. Internet in Nepal is not as fast as you are used to and at times you can just lose connection.

Is it necessary to hire Guides

Not really. It depends on you. If you want, trekking can be done independently. You could hire a guide and a porter by yourself instead of going through an agency or not hire a guide at all. Although, not having a guide can be a little problematic during off season.

It really depends on you. Is it your first time in Nepal? How confident are you of being able to find your way around? How pressed on time are you? If you go through an agency, it will be costlier but everything will be planned. You will only have to come, trek and return.
