This trip exceeded all expectations and dreams! Amanda was wonderful planning this trip with us over a two year period, and it was fantastic to finally get to meet her after all that correspondence! Our guide, Rajive Shakya, could not have been better! He was a wealth of knowledge! I had a million questions and he patiently answered them all! Our lodgings each night were beautiful - the people we met were so kind and lovely. At Rajive’s suggestion we watched the sun rise over the Himalayas in Pokhara! Bandipur was simply gorgeous - it was like being on a movie set, it was so unreal! Chitwan was unforgettable - hugging and feeding the elephants was simply a dream come true! We actually were fortunate enough to receive a blessing from a Hindu Living Goddess on our last day! I could go on forever - it was THAT amazing and so well planned out! And we learned SO much from Rajive! Our drivers were wonderfully skilled in navigating the rocky unpaved roads! It was perfect! We are already planning our next trip with Kim Kim! 🙏 Dhanyabad! ❤️

Hotel Review
Tiger Tops Tharu Lodge

This was the most incredible lodge! The food was fantastic, the room was just lovely and the grounds were breathtaking! More than even this, the staff and the Project Manager, Pradyot Rana, were so unbelievably welcoming and wonderfully kind, it broke my heart to leave! I truly could have stayed forever! There was a cultural performance one evening which was amazing! And our guide, Pushpa, was incredibly knowledgeable and so enjoyable ! The entire experience was fabulous! Dhanyabad 🙏

Authenticity & Character
We learned so much about the Tharu people and had an outstanding cultural performance of traditional Tharu dancing!
Gorgeous - the trees, the lit paths, lunch outside under the trees!
Unbearable! Just beautiful, welcoming…. Couldn’t have been better!
Cleanliness & Comfort
Everything was simply perfect!
