Read here what a good friend has published about the 25th Anniversary:

 A Celebration of Service Dogs


If you want to visit SARDOGS NEPAL and meet our Junior Staff and our SAR Dogs, this is OUR LOCATION:

The Middim Khola Resort and the SARDOGS Nepal Academy are located exactly in the Geographic Middle of Nepal at
Google Map: 

28°10'41.9"N 84°16'08.1"E

28.178306, 84.268906


This map shows the entire land mass of Nepal. The lines that lead northwards seem shorter due to that a map is flat and 2 dimensional. In reality they traverse up and down of every gorge and foothill up to the highest mountain on our planet.


This may be THE PLACE for you and your friends to spend some time there to follow a Tai Chi Course or do some research as a bird watcher, a butterfly fan, a herbalist, an orchid lover or just take daily walks into the surrounding forest hills to see breath taking views of Mount Manaslu and the mighty Annapurna Range. Delicious local food and folk dance events performed by the local farmer women and children for a small donation for their village development committee will make your heart ache when you have to leave again..

Visiting us while mountain biking from Pokhara to the resort is a daring adventure too; the biking route leads from SISUWA at the Begnas Lake over a steep pass to Karaputar and then through the dense hill forest upward from Laxmi Bazaar. Follow it and come out at the riverside exactly in Shyauli Bazaar for dinner in our lodge. Book in time! Contact us!

The profit from the Resorts income goes entirely to SARDOGS Nepal; the only Search & Rescue Dog Squad for Disaster Response and missing people in Nepal. Our Academy staff actually owns the resort and visitors can even become a honorable members of the SAR Dog Squad against the pledge for some regular small donation.

You may also rent or even purchase· a cottage in this cool and spacious jungle resort for long term stay...if you are a pensioner that is...or a travel writer who needs to sort out his/her manuscripts.

Volunteers are also welcome and they may stay for free up to 3 months...provided that they are useful like: Certified SAR Dog Trainers, certified Out Door Paramedic Aid instructors, certified Rock Climbing Instructors. (ask us for more)· Contact us! We are also opening up in the Rain Season for those who love to see wild flowers, abundant greenery and delicious wild growing tropical forest vegetables, fruits and berries...that are not available at other times of the year. There is so much to learn here!

Visitors who find themselves close to our Regional Office in Pokhara can contact us easily by phone or by email (see our contact information) and arrange to come to the· Middim Khoa Resort Guest House of SARDOGS Academy in Shyauli Bazaar.
