Bardiya National Park is located on the far western stretches of Nepal’s Terai, the lowland area of the country that encompasses a wide swathe of grasslands, wetlands, and jungles that border India and make up one of the most diverse and unique wildlife regions in Asia. Formerly a hunting reserve for the royal family, the park was established in 1988 and is still in such an unspoiled and pristine state relative to the number of annual visitors that it’s frequently described as "Chitwan thirty years ago."

Among the park’s many notable features is that it hosts a range of Asia’s most iconic mammals, such as the Bengal tiger, one-horned rhinoceros, and wild elephants, as well as being a bird-lovers' paradise with over 250 species found in the park, including the endangered Bengal florican and Sarus crane. Gharal and Marsh Mugger crocodiles, as well as Gangetic dolphins, are another attraction accessible via canoe trips in the park along the Geruwa River, the main waterway that runs through Bardiya.

There are ample opportunities for visitors to explore the vast wilderness of Bardiya, from jungle walks and canoeing to tiger tracking and birdwatching, a visit to the crocodile breeding center, Tharu cultural experiences, dolphin encounters, and of course an extensive jungle safari that offers up the opportunity to view the entire range of wildlife roaming the region—even the tigers if we’re lucky.

Bardiya is a considerable distance from Kathmandu and requires a return flight to Nepalgunj, with a further two hours required to reach the park by road. Once you’ve arrived at your accommodation, the hotel’s staff will give you the specific details for each day’s schedule according to your interests and length of stay. Our basic program is for a four-day/three-night stay, though if you wish, we can arrange for a longer visit. Simply contact Nepal Trekking Experts and let our staff discuss the options with you.
