A boating expedition down the Narayani River can be both a soothing and exhilarating experience. Cruising on the wide expanse of the river, pockets of rapids propel the boats along, as gentle waves lap at the sides. Sitting inside a Tiger Tops hand-carved boat, keep your eyes peeled for a variety of birdlife and wildlife. Top of the list are the endangered fish-eating Gharial crocodile and its more sinister relative, the Marsh-Muggger. With its brown, earthen coloured scales cleverly camouflaged on the banks, the Marsh-Mugger is both a challenge and a treat to spot.
As the Narayani River is the natural border between the National park and the surround villages, boating trips will also give guests a glimpse into village life. Watch local fisherman as they skillfully go about their daily work, or find children play on the banks above.
