The 932-sq.km, Royal Chitwan National Park that is declared a world natural site by UNESCO, is one of the most visited parks in Nepal. The diverse ecology of the Park is home to around 600 plant species, 50 mammals, 526 birds and 49 amphibians and reptiles with some endangered fauna and flora.
Bardiya National Park lies in the western Terai and comprises the largest and most undisturbed wilderness area of the region. Similar to Chitwan, but drier and more remote Bardiya contains the country’s second largest tiger population and daytime sightings are more common here than in Chitwan.

Chitwan National Park
It offers more than 500 Asian one-horned rhinoceros roaming in sprawling grass and wetland, some 100 nocturnal Royal Bengal tigers hunting for their preys in the dense jungle and the river in and around the Park also boast about the endangered snout gharial popularly known as Gangetic crocodile. The extra attraction in the Park is fresh water dolphins diving below and above the water level in Narayani River.
Adding color and liveliness to the wildlife experience, local culture and tradition makes this park a unique tourist destination. The most primitive dwellers of this area are mainly the Tharu Community who lived in the area even before the park was declared in 1972. Their traditionally decorated thatched huts, traditional method of performing house-hold and their typical dances make a combination worth experiencing while in this Park.
