Chitwan National Park is a UNESCO-listed heritage site renowned throughout the world for its exceptional and diverse range of wildlife that includes some of the greatest numbers of one-horned rhinos and Bengal tigers to be found in Asia, as well as a host of other animals that include leopards, jackals, crocodiles, monkeys, pangolins, sloth bears, deer, various kinds of birds, and a wide variety of butterflies.
Chitwan National Park is located five hours away from Kathmandu, and after our arrival by bus, a number of opportunities exist to explore Nepal’s premier national park and the subtropical lowlands of forests, grasslands, and flood plains that it consists of, as well as the traditional Tharu villages that adjoin the park.
Among the many highlights available during our stay are nature walks, canoeing, bird watching, ox-cart rides, Tharu cultural experiences, and elephant bathing, though the jewel in the crown for most visitors is the unique opportunity to travel through the park on a jeep safari and view the abundant wildlife on offer. That includes, if we’re fortunate on the day, the magnificent Bengal tiger and even perhaps one of the wild bull elephants that occasionally roam into the park looking for mates.
Whether it’s a one-day visit or a multi-day experience in Chitwan, Nepal Trekking Experts can arrange a suitable stay that will fulfill all your requirements. If you have time and flexibility, we highly recommend a 3-night, 4-day Chitwan safari rather than a 2-night, 3-day safari. It costs an additional $50 per person. You may also prefer the most interesting and richest safari, Bardiya. Feel free to contact our staff to discuss all the options.
