Tharu People

The Tharu people live in villages near the forests of Chitwan in the South of Nepal.

They hunted and cultivated seasonal crops, and to this day still crop and hunt small animals. They build huts from natural local materials. They value family and are very proud of their children.

The Tharu people are a curiosity in today's world as they are resistant to Malaria.
