Nepal: Night at the jungle house

Besides walks, elephant rides and canoeing, you can also opt to spend a whole night deep in the jungle at a jungle house – a stilted 3-story hideway located miles into the park. Occasionally, Bengal tigers roam close by (wasn’t the case for me). The sounds of the jungle are around you all night and in the morning you see an insane sunrise over the alluvial plains of the rivers with all the wildlife enjoying the fresh misty morning – the more species of deer, a wild boar, tons of birds. Just don’t forget to take the leeches off yourself after the hike.
