What To Do in Sauraha?
Sauhara is next to Nepal’s famous Chitwan National Park. Recognized as a World Heritage Site by the UNESCO in 1985, the park covers 932 km2 and is situated in the southern Terai lowlands of Nepal. It is widely known for its rich varieties of wildlife. This park boasts of housing various endangered species like the Great Asian One-horned Rhinoceros, the elusive Royal Bengal tiger, sloth bears, leopards, gaur, sambars, spotted deer, gharials, crocodiles, and unique birds. So far, 450 species of birds have been found in the Chitwan reserve including strok, geese, cormorants, egrets, kingfishers, and endangered species like the Bengal Florician, Lesser Florician, Indian Pitta, and parakeets. This makes the park a bird watcher’s paradise.
In the park, many activities are proposed: elephant safaris, Jeep safaris, canoeing, bird watching, jungle walks, and elephant bathing are just a sample of what you can do at the Chitwan reserve. You can also learn about the Tharu culture while visiting the museum and assisting in one of their impressive stick dances.
So in a few words, Sauraha is a peaceful place away from the noise of Pokhara and Kathmandu, where you can also find many things to do.
