Chitwan Forest Lodge

Chitwan Forest Lodge is a perfect wildlife resort next to the jungle and grasslands of the Chitwan National Park (Nepal). Located in the paradise garden of flowers and blooming shrubs, it is an ideal place to relax after a wild safari and jungle walks.

Chitwan Forest Lodge:   Green Mansions Wildlife Resort

The Green Mansion Resort is located on the edge of the Chitwan National Park near the main town of Sauraha (Nepal). Muddy road leading to the resort winds along the rice fields, then passing next to the famous Tharu Village arrives at the entrance of a walled compound.

After crossing the gate you enter quite different world – one would say an oasis in this desolate area of villages reminiscent of the long forgotten past.

May be it is just the beautiful garden with blooming bushes, plenty of flowers and neatly cut grass that makes such difference.

Whatever it is - this first impression is a wonderful welcome especially after long hours spent on the road…. The individual bungalows making up the compound are mostly hidden behind the plants nicely blending with this scenery of paradise . Here you really feel being in the middle of the nature, while appreciating the amenities of the civilized world.

Chitwan Forest Lodge: Green Mansions Wildlife Resort is located in a "Paradise Garden"

Huts are covered with thatched roofs, while tailed bungalows' roofs are overgrown by moss finding in this humid and hot climatic zone perfect conditions to grow “out of nothing”.

The bungalows are built around small patios, giving the better sense of space.

The wall around the compound is heavily draped with greenery – pretending to play the borders of the nearby jungle. But I guess its main task is to keep out rhinos from unsolicited visits.

Chitwan Forest Lodge: Blooming bushes create a unique "out of this (jungle) world" ambiance...

Rooms are very basic and simple but provide most of what you may need here – comfortable sleeping, running water and hot shower.

Nets installed in the windows offer protection from mosquitoes. Small lizards here and there on the walls “take care” of few lost ones that possibly entered the room through the door. And let me tell you - if you ever have a thought to chase out lizards – it is a bad idea.

Chitwan Forest Lodge: Local transport - you may use the service to go to the Tharu Cultural Center, just few miles away.

The lizards are the best “organic-mosquitoes-repellents”, they simply devour them when you sleep!

To tell you the truth – the wild nature does not tolerate the void, so you may have some unwanted guests like ants, spiders and other more or less creepy creatures trying to get to your room.

This is the jungle resort, do not expect the “sterile” environment! The good news – rooms are kept clean and each evening they are sprayed with insect repellent!

Rooms do not have AC, the ceiling fan may provide some relief.

Chitwan Forest Lodge: Occasionally some uninvited guests may want to share with you the bedroom... :-)

The restaurant provides the buffet-style selection of Nepalese and Indian meals with some “continental” twists. The choice is not overwhelming, but frankly everybody should be able to find something for him/herself.

Like every hotel and lodge in the area – the Green Mansion Resort organizes access to all local attractions, be it the visit to the nearby Tharu Village with evening cultural presentation, visit to the elephant breeding center and any form of wild safari like jungle walk, elephant ride, canoe trip, , etc…

After the long day out you can then sit in the shadow of thatched canopy in one of the open-wall huts in the Green Mansion compound.

Sipping the tea or coffee in the middle of the garden full of exotic trees and flowers, taking pleasure in watching birds or butterflies or simply relaxing after emotionally and physically exhausting day in the jungle is a well deserved part of your journey.

Once you relax, gain the strength and have your cap of tea or coffee, it's time for exploring Chitwan (Nepal). If you are willing to do so, then please select one of the following links:
