Chitwan National Park

Chitwan is the last surviving example of the natural ecosystems of Nepal’s sub-tropical lowland ‘Terai’ region, wedged between two river valleys at the base of the Siwalik range of the outer Himalaya. It’s an excellent place to view one-horned rhino and Indian elephant as well as hundreds of different species of birds.

Chitwan became a national park in 1973 and was granted a World Heritage Site in 1984 since when the populations of rhino and tiger have increased. You will undoubtedly see rhino, and possibly other large mammals such as sloth bear, wild boar, sambar, spotted deer, gaur, mongoose and a large numbers of langur monkeys but tiger remain extremely elusive and sightings are rare.

The park can be explored in a variety of ways; on foot, by boat and on elephant back during morning and afternoon safaris. You'll be woken early to set off into the cold and mist through the grasslands and sal forest. As the sun gets stronger and the fug lifts, on a clear day your wildlife viewings may be against the backdrop of the Himalaya in the far distance - wonderful and quite extraordinary.
