This is the traditional transport of the Tharu people; a cart pulled by pair of oxen. It is good fun to ride on the ox-cart and go to a traditional village to experience their living style. Since the beginning of time the Tharu tribes are used to live here. Our guide will explain about the customs, tradition and culture of the Tharu people. You can see mud & clay-built ochre-colored houses with thatched roofs. These simple, mostly one-room structures with no chimney and no windows seemingly have little to hide from the outside world.
We can also find a local host family in the countryside if the guests are interested. Take part in daily life to learn about their culture, custom and language.
Walk out and stretch your legs deep into the forest accompanied by our professional naturalists as they share their extensive knowledge with you on your way to prime spots in quest of rare and endemic species.
Seated high on the back of a trained elephant exploring the grasslands and core area of the park, you become an integral part of the national park. The elephant safaris, though not the most comfortable rides, is an amazing experience. And you will be much fascinated when you see amazing animals few meters away from you.
Just chill out besides the tranquility of the Budhi Rapti River and watch the appealing elephants taking a bath or if it’s too tempting, join them while taking a dip down the river in the presence of our staffs.
