Chitwan is the national park situated some 200km south of Kathmandu and is home to to appx 125 Royal Bengal Tigers and over 500 rhinoceros. We went there on safari for a couple of nights at the end of our trip as much for a rest but also in the hope of spotting […]

This is a small village set on a hill en route from Pokhara to Chitwan. It is a car free zone and is a little bit like stepping back in time. The village has a real laid back feel and is popular with hippies and back packers. We stayed in an old Newari […]

We strolled through the narrow alleyways, had lunch in a restaurant with great views over Durbar Square, wandered round […]
