Lesser Travelled destination
The area around the Bardiya National Park is often overlooked by tourists, but this means that those who do make the trip are met with a landscape and colorful culture that hasn’t been overrun with tourism.
I loved this place so much! The homestay is very close to the entrance of Bardia National Park, so the environment is rural, natural and even a little bit exciting, as one evening we saw some elephants roaming the borders of the park from our house. The grounds of the homestay are lovely, with a lot of plants, flowers, little houses and cute wiggling ducks. I stayed in one of the houses, which had a bedroom and attached bathroom. A step back in time with the mud floors and walls, but I liked it a lot. If you are looking for authenticity, you will enter and leave with a smile :) There was great hospitality, the family was very sweet and they served us delicious dal bhat, pancakes and tea. My friend even helped in the kitchen! Yes, I made some good memories here...
A great place to stay while experience Bardia. Bardia Community Homestay is a marvelous. Tharu family run lodge with good food, strong local roots and The best spirited guide service for Bardia. Real wildlife experience. Beautiful place, rural life, peace, amazing family.
Bardiya is home to the indigenous Tharu people. By day, the villagers work on their artisanal products & tend to their crops while the kids play near the jungle.
