Chitawan National Park
Chitwan translates to “heart of the jungle”. The very first of Nepal’s national parks lies 175 kilometers south-west of Kathmandu.
This beautiful sanctuary covers four districts: Chitwan, Nawalparasi, Parsa and Makwanpur and consists of a diversity of ecosystems-including the Churia hills, ox-bow lakes, and the flood plains of the Rapti, Reu and Narayani Rivers, spread over an area of 932 sq. kilometres.
- Experience an unforgettable elephant back safari through the grassland and riverine forests of the Park in search of the regal tiger, Asiatic rhino and other exceptional wildlife.
- Unwind on a tranquil boat ride on the Rapti and Reu Rivers - looking out for fish-eating crocodile and migratory birds along the way.
- Enjoy a Jeep safari through the Park.
- Put your hiking boots on and explore the Park’s riverine forest on a walking safari.
With warm comfortable days and cool mornings and evenings, being on safari is a pleasure at this time.
