#1 of 17 in Nature in Central Region
Explore Nepal's first national park at Chitwan National Park, a sprawling, World Heritage-listed wildlife conservancy. The area served as hunting grounds for Nepal's ruling class in the 19th century and for many years in the mid-20th century saw egregious poaching. The park now covers 932 sq km (360 sq mi), is home to over 700 species of wildlife, and contains several conservation projects within its boundaries, including for Bengal tigers, rhinoceroses, and gharial crocodiles. Look into the various lodging and guided tour opportunities on the premises, as well as the museum and Hindu religious site near its headquarters.

  • One of the must visit site in Nepal. With elephant safari, jeep safari, boat ride, canoeing available as a means to explore the national park and its valuable and rare vegetation and animals, the time and moments I share with this wonderful place will linger forever in my mind. I will be back here soon again to do some unfinished business ✌
