Marcus Cotton & Jhalak Raj Chaudhary
Your Host and The Team
Marcus Cotton & Jhalak Raj Chaudary – Dedicated to Responsible Conservation TourismThe two main faces of Tiger Mountain Pokhara Lodge, Marcus Cotton comes from England, brought up near Oxford in a traditional Buckinghamshire farming village, while Jhalak Raj Chaudhary was born and raised in Meghauli Village on the edge of Chitwan National Park in Nepal. Both men equally embrace the vision for Responsible Conservation Tourism and this commitment is reflected in all they do. Working with the local community and respecting the region’s environment, they’ve kept the lodge grounds in their natural state in order to support the habitat for the birds, butterflies and other native animals.
The lodge, which is a haven for guests, also employs members of the local community with whom the men share their values of conservation and preserving the environment. Seeing the increased confidence and professionalism of the lodge’s has been both a goal and deeply satisfying reward of the owners who aspire to pass their passion and integrity onto future generations of managers and employees.

The lodge prioritises all appointments for job applicants from the immediate community, and raises understanding of responsible tourism within the community such as litter and refuse management. Public water taps were installed to provide a reasonable water supply to the local people. In addition to supporting local schools including the salary of one teacher and providing teaching materials, books, paper, and posters, the lodge also manages the sponsorship funded by guests of various children from disadvantaged backgrounds who would otherwise not be able to go to school. Working closely with local partners, national, and international charities, the lodge also develops and supports local environmental enhancement projects. Other aid comprises a range of biodiversity monitoring projects, and various social development and welfare activities.
