First stop on the tour was Chitwan National Park. Because of various festivals going on in Nepal it was decided that we would hire a private car to take us to the Indian border via Chitwan National Park and Lumbini. The car was rather posh and a lot more comfortable than the local busses… So while I was a bit miffed at having to fork out more $ I was glad we weren’t in the slow cram packed local buses while driving to Chitwan. As you can see by the photos (below) health and safety rules aren’t really followed here in Nepal!
We arrived in Chitwan and stayed at a tiny little simple guest house on the edge of the national park. It was a cute we place and the accommodation was very very basic. I had to use the shared bathroom which was basically a squat toilet for a loo and a hose for a shower! There wasn’t really much to do except drink, so drink we did… the first round of beers were cracked open at 2pm, I moved onto whisky (stupid girl) about 5pm and well… we have a vague recollection of eating dinner, we were all VERY hung over the next day!
