“…And the most reasonable reason for it is that every Nepali citizen has their rights to feel the beauty of Sauraha and everywhere else in Nepal.”
One of the most visited tourist destination in Nepal is Sauraha, the gateway to Chitwan National Park which is also listed in UNESCO world heritage sites. Sauraha is a small charming village in the northern bank of Rapti River. We can do elephant safari, visit to elephant breeding center, cycling tour to lake, visit to crocodile breeding center and jungle trek in Sauraha. Sauraha a very beautiful village, everyone likes to be here either he/she from the nation or outside the nation. I and some of my pals also made a trip to Sauraha. We enjoyed elephant safari, cultural dance by the Tharu community, elephant safari and the visit to the elephant and crocodile breeding center.
At the bank of Rapti River, we’d a camp fire enjoying ourselves with music which was most amazing and memorable time of our life. The hotels and restaurants in Sauraha were so managed and comfortable. Everything in Sauraha is so cool and beautiful but the things that are disappointing are the pathetic condition of road from Sauraha Chowk (the highway) to the Chitwan National Park. It’s dusty and as we ride the Tanga, the poor facility leads to massive backbone ache because of plenty of jolting on the way.
Being the most visited tourist spot, I feel wretched that the concerned government bodies are not active enough as I inquired the locals. I personally feel that a middle class family just can enter Sauraha but cannot feel it because of its costing beyond the ability to expense by an average Nepali Citizen.
Nepal is a tourism based country so tourism should be promoted in Nepal but until and unless internal tourism is promoted, external tourism can’t make the strong way. We need to know our place well so that we can show the way to others. The responsible organization, government bodies and the non-government bodies should act actively to promote the domestic tourism. Nepali citizen wants to feel the beauty of Sauraha not just for entering Sauraha and everywhere else in Nepal.
