An oasis of luxury in lush jungle wilderness

Barahi Jungle Lodge

Barahi Jungle Lodge

Chitwan National Park
, Nepal

Set on the northern banks of the Rapti River, its glorious location looks out over the tall golden grasslands and verdant forest and green hills of Chitwan National Park. Here lining its banks, along its 30 acres, are built a number of charming Tharu – inspired thatched villas from which to explore the grasslands and forests beyond. The lodge is just a stone’s throw away from the glories of nature that this park has to offer. They can be explored alongside expert homegrown naturalists through small paddle boats, a comfortable vehicle or on elephant back, or for those with a taste for adrenalin, on foot. After all your exertions, relax on your villa’s private balcony with a beverage of your choice, unwind around the pool or at the Tiger’s Den bar, before indulging in the lodge’s food fest in its open- aired dining room.

Spread over 30 acres, the lodge offers 35 boutique ensuite rooms, built as individual and two-in-one private villas or suites. The rooms open up to a balcony with a sit-out overlooking the forest and the river. Beautifully designed with a rustic blend of contemporary and traditional Nepali furnishings with indigenous skills, used wood, bamboo and elephant grass.


A large open plan dining room serves a range of Indian and Continental dishes cooked with fresh ingredients, sourced from neighbouring village gardens. Lively musical performances by Tharu artists can be enjoyed around a camp fire in the evenings.


Go for breath-taking and adrenalin fuelled nature walks with the resident naturalist who will point out the variety of life, birds and other creatures you see along the way. Other ways to explore the park include canoe, jeep and elephant backed safaris. You may even get a chance to bathe one of the resident elephants on your return home.
