“The Tiger Tops Story” // Lisa Choegyal, 2010

The Tiger Tops Story is an intimate insight into the foundation of Nepal’s first and oldest eco tourism company, written by one of its earliest employees from 1974. To many, the Tiger Tops Story reads like fiction – two Texan oil millionaires, the old Royal Rana families hunting ground, a modest endeavor to begin tourism operations in the middle of the Chitwan jungle, demand outstripping supply, and the handover to the ever eloquent and perpetually intrepid Jim Edwards who catapulted the company to be the best high-end eco tourist resort that it is today. The modern fable evolves into one conservation and tourism, a legacy that the Edwards family and Tiger Tops staff continues to strive for.
