Chitwan Tharu Village, Sauraha

Categories: Landmarks, Tourist Spots
Inspirock Rating:
4.1/5 based on 100 reviews on the web
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.

  • Wow, what amazing service! Loved staying here. Hot showers, clean rooms, great people working there, and close to everything! Oh and 2 elephants lived right next to the hotel:) say hi to Roni the elephant and Bissal his master if you stay there for us, oh and Buso the server at the hotel was super sweet and attentive. One of the best places I've ever stayed!
  • We had a wonderful time at Chitwan Village Resort. We stayed there 2 nights in September 2015. The rooms are very clean with all western features: showers, flush toilets and A/C when the power is on (they have a backup system but not for A/C). The staff was very accommodating and spoke excellent English which is not always necessary but makes things a bit smoother. They have access to all of the Chitwan National Park activities such as the elephant breeding facility, elephant safari, jungle tours, river canoe rides and village tours. For anything that you schedule, a driver will pick you up at the lobby. Three elephants are housed right there at the resort and the drivers, who pretty much live with them, are right there to answer any of your questions. The food was excellent with enough western dishes that, if you are feeling that you have had enough of Napali fare for a while, are welcome. The prices are very reasonable. It's a bit off the main street (3 blocks) through the village but during high season, this can be a very good thing. Very quiet with beautiful landscaped grounds and plenty of outside dining.
