Sauraha is that town beside the huge tourist attraction Chitwan National Park. As such it caters accommodation and tourist services to everyone from 3-4 star guests down to the humble backpacker. And that’s about it. Welcome to my last night in Chitwan.
In the evenings there’s not that much to do. Indeed once it gets dark the town basically shuts up shop. Because Sauraha hasn’t really tried to expand beyond being “that town beside Chitwan”.
A walk down to the Rapti river that separates Sauraha and Chitwan National Park to watch the sunset is about the only thing one can do in the evenings. More than a tourist attraction it’s a great way to watch the sometimes bizarre world of Nepal go by.
