Interaction with guests
I'll always be around for my customers if they require anything, from tea to walks and any necessities needed.
Hello! I am very proud to tell you about Shanta Ghar a beautiful resort I've build and started together with my long time friends from Norway. We met 25 years ago when I was a trekking guide in the Himalayas, Anapurna. I have met a lot of nice people from all over the world during these years. Now I'm really happy to wish you welcome to Shanta Ghar, a different and natural place in the heart of Chitwan National Park. It is a very peaceful non tourist area. I can provide different activities like jungle safari and camps in the jungle for 2 -3 days. If you prefer to just relax, it is a perfect place for this too. I will do everything to make your stay a pleasant one! Welcome!
