Nepal/ Bhairawha info

Nepal/ Bhairawha

Nepal is a nation with a diverse, ancient cultural heritage. This is one country in Asia that has never been colonised. This is where Gurkha soldiers come from. This is where Siddhartha Gautama, a.k.a the Buddha was born.

Nepal is home to as many as 8 of the world’s 10 tallest mountains, including the mighty Everest. Once a Hindu Monarchy, it is now a representative democracy. Kathmandu is its capital city. And Nepali is the official language of this landlocked nation of nearly 30 million people.

Tiger Palace Resort is in Bhairahawa (now also called Siddharthanagar), in southern Nepal, close to the border with India. Situated south of the high Himalayas, in the fertile, subtropical Terai region, it experiences summer, monsoon, autumn, winter and spring. For a tiger, all five seasons are perfectly suitable!

Shopping & Lifestyle

Discover a vibrant culture

To check out the local scene in Bhairahawa, head out of the resort on a Thursday or Sunday to explore the Haat Bazaar, a weekly, makeshift bazaar selling pretty much anything and everything you can imagine. A riot of colours and a cacophony of vendors make for an exhilarating experience for the senses.

If you’d like to take back something that’s a local speciality, consider brassware from Palpa, in the hills north of Bhairahawa. And a ‘must buy’ are the small, round, beautifully colourful, rice straw baskets called Dokiya, that are woven by underprivileged local women.
