After a delicious buffet dinner we entertain you with traditional Tharu dance and culture program at the Resort. Cultural Tharu Dance is one of the highlights of your trip to Chitwan. The beautiful Tharu community will perform for an hour or two presenting their tharu dance and songs and will sometimes invite you to participate. The Tharu people live in the Tarai, a narrow strip of land which extends across 550 miles of the southern border of Nepal, next to northeast India. The land is forested and fertile. The Tharu people are divided into several subgroups; the Rana Tharu live in the southwestern corner of Nepal. Ethnically, their background is Rajput, members of a high caste in Rajasthan.
Legend has it that after the Moguls invaded India in the 16th century, a Mogul king wanted to marry one of their women. The women and children fled east and settled in this forested region while their men stayed behind to fight the Moguls. When the women heard that all their men had been killed, they married the slaves who had attended them in their travels, and settled permanently in their new home. The forests of the Tarai are full of tigers and snakes and malarial swamps. The swamps kept outsiders away, and the Rana Tharu developed resistance to the malaria. Over the next four centuries their own unique culture and language emerged.
I had a pleasant stay in this resort. The location and the premises are fine. I recommend my friends to have a visit and stay here at least once with family.
I enjoyed my stay here in Jungle Nepal Resort. The fine environment, greenery, flowers are the ornaments. The food, accommodation and services are superb. I want to visit this place again as this time I have no more holiday. Thank you all of you who are involved to make stay successful.
