Camp is reached by a short domestic Buddha Air flight (1 hour 10 mins) from
Kathmandu to the small town of Dhangadhi — a flight that provides unique and
sensational views of the central and western Himalaya. From Dhangadhi it is a
90-minute drive by road and on tracks passing paddy fields and lowland Sal
forest. Airport transfers
are arranged by the camp on request. If you are travelling independently, we will provide a naturalist guide to accompany you for the journey, offering an opportunity to do some birding en route!
Adjacent to Suklaphanta Camp, is an authentic rural Nepali village where, typically, there will be children playing outside their huts, women working in the paddy fields and men selling goods from a few stalls. Suklaphanta Camp is located less than five minutes’ drive from Suklaphanta Wildlife Reserve.
Suklaphanta Camp offers 8 spacious permanent tents with shared facilities. The camp has been equipped with four shared bathrooms (4 showers and 4 toilets). There is clean running water (hot and cold) for showers, and drinking water can be obtained from the bar in the main building. Although the camp accommodation is very comfortable, please note the facilities are basic and not luxurious. However, this is unquestionably the best place to stay for access to this superb and remote reserve!
Tasty meals — mainly freshly made curries — are served, buffet-style, in the main building. Breakfasts consist of a choice of porridge, toast and eggs with tea or coffee, and a packed lunch is provided while out in the reserve. The kitchen can offer vegetarian food, though if you have any other special dietary requirements it is best to contact the Camp in advance to be sure it can be catered for. There’s also a bar which serves a limited choice of soft drinks as well as beer, wine and spirits.
Please note, this is rural Nepal and there is no electricity inside the tents (although torches are provided). The main building does have electricity and power points where phones, laptops etc. can be charged.
