Nepal’s first and most famous national park, Royal Chitwan National Park, is situated in the lowlands of Inner Terai covering an area of 932 sq km. It is one of the natural heritage sites in the country located almost 169 km southwest of Kathmandu, near the Indian boarder. This temperate forest region has a large variety of wildlife indigenous to the Indian subcontinent, including Asia’s endangered animals. The National park is the last remaining home in Nepal for more than 300 of the endangered Asian one-horned rhinoceros and harbors one of the largest populations of the elusive and rare Royal Bengal tiger. Besides tiger and rhino, the park also maintains a great variety of flora and fauna. There are four species of deer, leopards, sloth bear, wild boar, rhesus monkey, gharial crocodiles, one of the world’s four species of fresh-water dolphins and over 400 species of birds. Among a great variety of flora, exotic orchids of many kinds are also found in abundance. The most thrilling jungle active is on elephant back safari through 20 ft grassland inhabited by rhino and tigers. Other jungle activities include jungle drives in land rovers, canoe rides and nature walks.
