How Do I Get There?

The property would highly recommend flying to Tiger Tops Karnali Lodge from Kathmandu due to its remote location. However, it is possible to drive, but they would recommend an overnight stay along the way. 

By flight: Approximately 45 minutes flying time from Kathmandu takes you to Nepalgunj airport. Here you will meet with the staff from the Lodge, who will drive you for two hours to Bardia National Park where the Lodge is situated.

By road: Tiger Tops Karnali Lodge is approximately 500km west from Kathmandu and can be reached by road in 20 hours from Kathmandu or Pokhara (it may take longer depending on traffic).
