  • Narayani river is full of Gharials - who can be seen lazing around on its sandy banks. It is also a great place to see sunset.  more »

  • A beautiful place. In the afternoon we went for a walk along the river and los rewarded us with a rhinoceros. Observation on the freedom of this majestic animal, which flocked to the watering hole was a masterwork, and aloof from main routes also with a thrill, associated with the close distance. Then in the "tourist centre" watching a sunset, really nice. Morning rafting dłubankami. On the banks of the crocodiles (yet lazy in the morning cold), a lot of birds, peace and silence. Recommend. The river calm, secure, and dłubanki not niewywrotne. Superb relaxation. I advise against only a visit to the nearby farm of elephants. Riveted on short chains animal is traumatic for me. Better to repeat the walk along the river.
