Chitwan National Park / Safari

Chitwan National Park is the first national park in nepal. It was established in 1973 and granted the status of a world heritage site in 1984. It covers an area of 952.63 km2 (367.81 sq mi) and is located in the subtropical inner loland terai  of south-central Nepal in the districts of Nawalparasi, Parsa, Chitwan and Makawanpur. In altitude it ranges from about 100 m (330 ft) in the river valleys to 815 m (2,674 ft) in the Chure hills.In the north and west of the protected area the Narayani-Rapti river system forms a natural boundary to human settlements. Adjacent to the east of Chitwan National Park isParsa National Park, contiguous in the south is the Indian Tiger Reserve Valmiki National park.

You'll have an excellent chance of spotting one-horned rhinos, deer, monkeys and some of the more than 543 species of birds. If you’re extremely lucky, you may spot a leopard, wild elephant or sloth bear – though it’s the once-in-a-lifetime chance to spot a majestic royal Bengal tiger that is the premier attraction. You'll also have the chance to experience domesticated elephants, although how that interaction takes place is now undergoing a paradigm shift driven by animal rights concerns.
