30th Oct, 2018 | Tourism Mail Crew
Just a hundred kilometer away from Kathmandu the capital city, lies nature’s gift Chitwan . Chitwan lies in Terai which separates the foothills of Nepal with India. Chitwan is a vast plain land with rich dense forests and rivers like Narayani and Rapti.
Drive from Kathmandu to Chitwan can be a wonderful experience. We reached Barahi at around midday and oh! How amazed I was to go around the place. Barahi stands on the 30 acres of land on the bank of eastern Rapti River. They welcomed us with warm towels to wipe ourselves and gave us a welcome drink. The welcoming gestures of the staffs were just amazing. We needed the bikes to reach our room and they provide us with a wonderful little tempo styled bikes. I was so happy at that moment. They has small cottage styled rooms which was cozy and traditional.
After freshening up we went to have snacks. The food was finger licking good and the staffs were super friendly. The swimming pool was big and it was fun swimming. The view from that area was so good I stayed there for a few hours. We had no plans for the day as we were tired and wanted to rest. At the evening we had the cultural show and it was amazing. Dinner was also tasty. Something I was fascinated about at Barahi was the cute tempo that would take us from one part of the lodge to the other.
Our second day at Barahi began with an amazing breakfast and then we enjoyed the Elephant ride. More fun was yet to come. We had our lunch inside the forest as we went for the Jeep safari. We saw Rhinos and a lot of small animals but we didn’t encounter a tiger or a wild cat. We had the guide with us who told us about the animals. After that there was this short canoeing thing that took us to the river back. There weren’t any crocodiles around during the canoeing luckily.
River bank was all set for the sunset view the barbeque and amazing drinks we enjoyed the sunset and they took us back to the resort. We rested for an hour took our spa and then it was dinner time. When we reached the dinner venue we were so amazed. The owner himself took us to the place. It was a surprise for me to see a beautiful area with no lights but lanterns which looked like stars in the sky. No people, no noise just the sound of birds and little insects. The food was so good I wanted to eat all night but then we had to sleep.
The following day was our last day at Barahi. We had our breakfast and left. They gave us khada and bid us goodbye. it was an amazing experience at Barahi . Anyone who goes there once would definitely visit again.
