Maharajah Jungle Trek


Another attraction, Maharajah Jungle Trek, is a breathtaking walking journey through the lush home of myriad animal and bird species.

Acrobatic gibbons emit deep-throated hoots as they swing from a Nepalese-styled monument tower to the ruins of a temple with Thai design in the mythical village of Anandapur. Revered tigers roam and play, intrigued by a herd of grazing deer just beyond the crumbling walls of a maharajah's palace. Giant fruit bats fly above the bat cliffs of Anandapur, where guests can walk right up to large open windows overlooking the bat habitat and watch them fly or hang from trees and the cliffs' rocky walls. The largest monitor lizard in the world, the Komodo dragon, which can grow up to 12 feet long, suns nearby. A spectacular aviary, complete with lotus pool, is home to beautiful ground-, mud- and tree-dwelling birds.

In this rainforest environment, Nepal, India, Thailand and Indonesia all are represented through architecture, animal carvings and ruins scattered throughout the village. Clusters of trees grow from the ruins of a beautiful tiger shrine. The exotic animals are visible from the top of a parapet, through a stand of bamboo and from a bridge that stands amid the ruins near an old herb garden.
