This entrepreneurial effort by some long-standing local guides is aimed at creating a free-standing tour agency beyond the lodges – and may well be less expensive because of it. The park entrance fee, breakfast, lunch and guide for an entire day is Rs 3000 per person, with a reduction after three people.

In addition to jeep and rafting safaris, they also organise 12-day long-distance treks to Jumla and Rara Lake. They also rent scooters (Rs 800 per day), bicycles (Rs 300 per day) and motorcycles (Rs 1000 per day). Located on the left just prior to reaching park headquarters.
