Visit Nepal - Chitwan National Park

When one thinks of Nepal, trekking the Himalayas is the first thing that comes to mind. However Nepal is an incredibly diverse country that offers so much more. One of the most popular tourist destinations in Nepal is the Royal Chitwan National Park.

Located in the south central region of Nepal, in the Terai. These southern plains are less than 100m above sea level. The best time to visit the park is after monsoon season when temperatures are cooler and vegetation is lush from all the rain; that time is now through about February.


Several lodges inside the Park offering full board and accommodations in combination with different types of tours make it easy for travelers to experience the beauty of the park first hand. When planning a visit to Chitwan, try to give yourself enough time for several safaris, as wildlife is unpredictable and there are many types of safaris you can enjoy.

Jungle walks/Elephant Tours: Leisurely guided tours by foot or atop an elephant give you an optimal way to see animals in their natural habitat. There is a good chance of seeing animals such as, the endangered one-horned Rhino, honey badger, sloth bear and many species of deer on this type of tour because they prefer to live in less disturbed areas. These types of tours are also great ways to explore the villages of the indigenous Tharu people and experience local culture first hand.

Jeep safaris: A jeep drive is the fastest way to visit a wide area of the park and offers a good chance of seeing big game such as Bengal Tigers, Leopards and Gaurs.
Canoe trips: Floating down the many rivers inside Chitwan National Park is the best way to see crocodiles and the rare gangetic dolphins in their natural habitats. It is also a relaxing way to watch birds and wildlife species that frequently come to bathe and drink.

Bird watching tours: Chitwan National Park is known as a paradise for birds and birdwatchers alike because of the vast variety that make the park home. Chitwan Valley records over 450 species of birds. Many of the birds that live here are endangered or near endangered, including the spotted eagle, bengal florican and oriental darter.

 Stay tuned for more highlights of Nepal throughout the month.
