Home Places To See Attractions Chitwan

Chitwan National Park

In the southern region of Nepal, the jungles of Chitwan National Park await you with wildlife experiences like no other. Track wild Royal Bengal tigers and watch Greater one-horned rhinoceros bathe in rivers while the great Asiatic elephants roam the jungles in herds. If you want to quench your thirst for nature, Chitwan National Park is where you should go. 

Witness real wilderness in the jungles of Chitwan, and do it with ease: go for a jeep safari in the depths of the forest to catch a glimpse of the elusive Bengal tiger. Or go for a jungle walk accompanied by a guide.

One-horned rhinoceros in Chitwan National Park

Exciting adventure awaits you if you go canoeing in the marshy Tarai river where you can observe dozens of marsh mugger crocodiles basking in the sun. These reptiles spend a lot of time lying still in the sandy banks.

You can also spend some quality time visiting the elephant and gharial breeding centers, a perfect way to educate your kids about these animals and their life cycle.

Be a part of the local tribal life and visit a Tharu village, where you are welcomed inside their traditional mud houses and treated with utmost care and respect.

At the end of the day add to the essence of the ultimate jungle experience and unwind next to a large campfire, to the sounds of  intricate Tharu stick dance and local folk songs.

The Chitwan National Park, Nepal's first national park lies at the foot of the Mahabharat range in the inner Tarai lowlands of Chitwan. Covering an area of 932 sq. km this is the most well preserved conservation area in all of Asia.

The park is rich in flora and fauna and has a fascinating variety of mammals and birds. The park preserves some of the last habitats for endangered species like the Greater one-horned rhinoceros and the Royal Bengal tiger.

The reserve was designated a national park in 1973 and was listed as a UNESCO world Heritage site.
