Visit to Sauraha

Visit to Sauraha

It was a cold morning in the month of Mangsir when we started our journey from Kathmandu to Sauraha. We took a tourist bus to get there and reached to our hotel in late afternoon. The weather over there was cool and welcoming. The trip has been exciting to us. For me, it was the first time I have ever been to terai and the topographical distribution left me enthralled. And for my husband, because of his photography passion, it has been an opportunity to capture the exotic beauty of Sauraha again.     After having lunch, we got to meet our tour guide. He gave a brief introduction about himself and the activities to be carried out the following and the next day. We were planned to visit sunset viewpoint at the evening. This gave us time to take rest for few hours. In the evening at around 4:30 pm we headed towards our destination. On the way we could see few tourists and as per information provided by our guide the no of tourists had declined that month. We were also provided information about the national park, the wildlife species and the local community. The lovely view of sunset and its reflection on the river was so spectacular that it made us fall completely in love with Sauraha. We could also see some crocodiles and gharials basking on riverbanks. There was also Sauraha beach restaurant for the visitor to relax and enjoy the view. We also got to know that camping is also done at night in the beach of river.     Later in the night...
