Chitwan Tharu Village, Sauraha

3.5
#4 of 8 in Things to do in Sauraha
Chitwan Tharu Village offers an intimate look into the authentic lifestyle of the Tharu people. This Nepali ethnic minority makes up about seven percent of the population, and has remained largely untouched by globalization. Residents live and work in the village's mud homes, often too busy going about their lives to interact much with visitors. The livestock grazing in the area belong to the villagers, and a small museum gives more information about Tharu culture, tools, and dress. The village is about 2 km (1.2 mi) outside of the center of Sauraha; you can reach it easily by car, ox-pulled cart, on foot, or by bicycle.

  • It's a village where some original Nepali houses are saved to look into Nepali history.. Worth a watch..  more »
  • We had a small tour through the village and could learn a lot about the way of life of the Tharu. You will be accompanied here constantly by children who speak little English surprisingly wise at a young age. Some begging here also for money, you should give them no way. Better, it gives you a few crayons, or Granola bars or similar.
