About me

My name is Hukum Shahi and my nickname is 'Junglehukum'.

I was the first guide in Bardia and therefore I have a lot of experience with guiding people through the jungle and around the Karnali river. Together with my wife Krishna we are running the 'Jungle Base Camp Lodge'. This lodge is build in traditional Tharu style. Our kitchen is simple, but very good.
