Enjoy 3 days of jungle excitement in Nepal during this tour of Chitwan National Park from Kathmandu. Ride atop an elephant to view spectacular wildlife and scenery. See Royal Bengal tigers and one-horned rhinos. Visit a traditional Tharu village.
Chitwan National Park is situated in the subtropical lowlands of the Terai. It offers elephant safaris, nature walks, and tours by both jeep and boat. The park is home to many species of animals such as the sloth bear, leopards, crocodiles, monkeys, many different species of butterflies, and over 450 sorts of colorful and endangered birds. In the summer months, the forest is alive with nesting migrant birds, such as the paradise flycatcher, the Indian pitta, and parakeets.
As you explore Chitwan National Park there's a very good chance of spotting the one-horned rhino and, with a little luck, you may see a leopard or Royal Bengal tiger. You're sure to come across deer and bird life, and look out for the crocodiles that glide through the Rapti River or sun themselves on the banks. The river is also home to the rare freshwater Gangetic dolphin and occasionally they can be seen breaching the water.
Chitwan National Park has 6 premier jungle resorts scattered within its boundaries. These secluded resorts are the perfect place to experience the true safari atmosphere of the Terai. All jungle activities are just a step away, and there's always a chance to spot wildlife.
