Royal Chitwan National Park


Nepal to most people means 'mountains.and sherpas'. So it comes as a surprise when visitors are told of Royal Bengal tigers and rhinos that roam the forests of Nepal. A large sector of Chitwan, once the favourite hunting grounds for Rana Maharajas and visiting dignitaries, is today a national park. Talk of wildlife and Chitwan springs to mind. It is in fact the single most important destination for wildlife safari in Nepal. Easy access, abundance of wildlife and a surplus of accommodation make this the natural choice for viewing animals in the wild. Royal Chitwan National Park with its Sal and riverine forests along with grasslands is the best-known habitat for the endangered Royal Bengal tiger. It is also home to the Greater One-horned rhinoceros, which are seen frequently in the park. The Park was declared a World Heritage Site under UNESCO in 1984.

Chitwan is home to over 43 different species of mammals while more than 450 species of birds have been sighted here. There are tigers, leopards, black bear, rhinos, wild elephants, four species of deer, wild boar, hyenas, Langur and Rhesus monkeys to name some of the mammals. Among the reptiles there are gharial crocs, pythons, monitor lizards, etc. Activities within the park consist of exiting elephant rides through the jungle in search of rhinos, Royal Bengals, deer,etc. As if this were not enough, there are also jeep rides, nature walks and raft-trips down the rivers or on dug out canoes in the primitive fashion. There are many lodges to stay in within the park and outside itl
