Can anyone recommend a good tour for Chitwan? Thinking of going for a total 5 or 6 days. Would you recommend booking in Kathmandu or taking the bus to Saurah and getting tours from there? If so what accomodations are good on the budget side of things? Any information would be helpful.

It's nice to hear that you are heading to Chitwan National Park. Generally visit to Chitwan National Park can be easy for you to arrange in Kathmandu because it will all arranged before and there will be some one to pick you up from the Place where you staying at. Similarly, there are two kind of programme you may choose like as Inside the Park and Out side the Park.. If you go inside the park you will have all the jungle activities,accomodation in middle of the jungle,most of the time you get chances to see wild animals,elephant ride. Similarly, if you go outside the park, your accomodation at out side and all the jungle activities are inside the park ,Tharu Village walk,Tharu Culture Dances,Canoe Ride and there are most of the chances to view the Gharial Corcodile and others.
So,as I have mentioned above the arrangement of tour to Chitwan is better to do in Kathmandu and 2night/3days is suitable plan for chitwan or if you like to spend more days you can do it no problem.
