The Suklaphanta wildlife reserve is located in the far South western corner of Nepal. Here you can find the world’s largest herd of Swamp dear and stunning scenery, far from the herds of tourists.
This small accommodation & tour provider offers both home stays and camping in the Forest, within the Suklaphanta wildlife reserve. Guided tours include bike riding on the worlds largest suspension bridge over the Mahakali River, Nepal. The best way to access this isolated region is to fly into Dhangadhi airport, then it’s a further one hour drive to suklaphanta wildlife reserve where your hosts will meet you.
