With the Reu River and a sprawling grassland below, the Tiger Tops Tharu Lodge enjoys a privileged position in the beautiful Surung Valley. A wealth of outdoor activities can be experienced in this tranquil retreat on the edge of the jungle, in the constant shadow of the snow-capped Himalayas.
Tiger Tops’ roots in the Chitwan area date back to the 1960s, even before Chitwan was a National Park and World Heritage site. A renowned destination for wildlife safaris in Asia, Chitwan’s lush beauty mingles with the understated luxury of Tiger Tops’ accommodations. The lodge and camp are held to a high standard of environmental responsibility and utilize solar power, ecological waste management and sustainable building materials in every structure.
Tiger Tops Tharu Lodge
The tree houses and bungalows contain 20 comfortable guest rooms, all close to the main lodge and all its amenities. Solar power heats the water for hot showers in the en suite baths and also provides power to the reading lamps and ceiling fans.
Tiger Tops Tented Camp
A collection of 12 rustic safari tents are adjacent to the Jungle Lodge, scattered on the hillside with optimal views of the tranquil hills and Himalayas in the distance. Attached bamboo bathrooms are equipped with modern facilities, and each tent includes a lantern, flashlight and umbrella for effortless navigating in changing weather conditions.
At the heart of Tiger Tops is the domed Gol Ghar, a thatched-roof main lodge with plenty of room for relaxing and dining. Western and Nepali cuisine is on offer day and night, prepared with fresh and organic ingredients sourced from local farms. Ascend the viewing platform with a cool drink and complimentary snacks, and catch a glimpse of the rhino and Indian Bison grazing in the fields below the camp. Before settling in around the cozy central fireplace for an evening of reflection, browse the camp library or partake in a drink from the fully-stocked bar.
Embark with experienced guides into the grasslands on foot or by Jeep. Chitwan’s wildlife includes the elusive Royal Bengal tiger, Asian rhinoceros, gaur (or Indian bison), sloth bear, and several species of bird. Guides will also escort guests on river safaris where the endangered gharial crocodile is often sighted.Request Information
