Indian hospitality company Taj has taken its adventures to the Himalayan haven of Nepal with its newest camp opening.
In a land of snowy peaks and sherpas, yaks and yetis, monasteries and mantras, where
ancient temples, shrines, palaces and monuments offer a glimpse into the past, Nepal’s Chitwan National Park is a real jewel.
It’s also home to the new Meghauli Serai Jungle Lodge by Taj Safaris, the first of the brand’s camps to open outside India. From its prime position nestled on the banks of the Rapti River, Meghauli Serai offers spectacular views from its 13 rooms and 16 independent pool villas (there’s also a sumptuous Rapti Mahal presidential suite if you feel like playing King for the night).
The park, which you’ll explore during jeep and elephant back safaris and guided jungle walks, is home to breathtaking wildlife, from great hornbills and pied kingfishers to majestic Royal Bengal tigers, stealthy leopards, wild dogs, shy sloth bears and coveted greater one-horned rhinoceros.
During your stay, there are opportunities to visit local Tharu villages for lessons in traditional moonshining; to canoe on the Rapti River, or to trek through the awe-inspiring Himalayan foothills. Afterwards indulge in signature spa treatments or take a dip in an infinity pool overlooking the tranquil flow of the Rapti River. https://taj.tajhotels.com
