Small village where the local people live in a different era. Lot of livestock and families getting on with their daily lives. No touristy sales, refreshingly authentic.

The Tharu Cultural Museum provides a nice collection of Tharu artifacts/information just outside of Sauraha. It houses exhibits on many facets of Tharu culture, including collections of traditional fishing baskets and cookware. Great opportunity to learn about a vibrant, historically underserved Nepali cultural group.

For a planned event this one was enjoyable loved the peacock dance and the stick dances but what made it nice was no pushing of souvenirs just a delightful hour of cultural dancing

I went via Ox driven cart through the village and then onto the museum which houses some old artefacts. It is a very peaceful place to visit and interesting to see old agricultural techniques still being used.
