●Guided Through the Real Nepal By a Local

This area of Bardia and Shuklaphanta National Parks is currently not a popular tourist destination due to transportation logistics, lack of tourist lodges, and lack of awareness to marketing to foreign tourists. You will not find any other companies offering package tours or leading group tours in this area. Saiyu Nepal utilizes its network of local guides and information to bring you this tour as an option to see the real Nepal. Based on your interests we can hire a birding specialist as well to join your tour, so please inquire.
