The first, and still the most popular, National Park in Nepal is Chitwan.  Created in 1973, it became a World Heritage Site in 1984.  So you can imagine its importance to the country’s landscape, and in more recent decades, to the tourism industry.  Home to some of the largest mammals on earth – the one-horned Asian rhinos, Asian elephants, and Royal Bengal Tigers – it is also home to many species of monkeys, deer, and smaller mammals. 

Although most of the park is flat, forest-covered land, it also takes in the Sivalik Hills and runs along the southern part of Nepal, bordering India to the south.  It is the traditional home to the Tharu people, most of whom were moved out when the park boundaries were set up.   

It has a sub-tropical climate, making it very hot in the dry and monsoon seasons.  Most of the forests are of sal trees and a large area of high grasses, traditionally cut and used as building materials for local houses. 

Because of its close location to Kathmandu, Chitwan National Park has grown as a popular tourist destination.  Originally it was more a place for wildlife enthusiasts, but as lodges and hotels became more comfortable, it became more attractive to all visitors. 

Activities 

There are many exciting activities available in Chitwan.  Or relax by the riverside and soak up the atmosphere of the jungle visible across the water.  The most popular activities include jungle walks, jeep safaris, and bird watching.  And everyone enjoys the local cultural tours and shows.

Accommodation

Green Park, Chitwan, is an extremely comfortable hotel that has been running for over six years in Chitwan. All the rooms have private bathrooms, such as tea and coffee-making facilities, and air conditioning.  Its outside bar and swimming pool make it an ideal place to relax day and evening.  

Food is included in the package rate and combines Western, Nepali, and Indian cuisine.

How to Get There 

There is a tourist bus from Kathmandu to Chitwan, where you will be met by the hotel or the option of getting there by private car or flight. If you decide to fly, there is another hour of road travel once you reach Bharatpur airport.

By road Chitwan is around 5 hours’ drive.  By flight it takes around 20 minutes, plus that extra hour by road.

Day 2: Chitwan National Park: Jeep Safari, Elephant Breeding Center

  • Time: 7 to 8 hours
  • Accommodation: Hotel

Breakfast is taken early so visitors can enjoy the early morning sounds of the jungle. 

Then it’s time for a jeep safari through the park with the possibility of spotting some large animals, such as the one-horned rhino and a tiger. If you are very lucky, you definitely will see varieties of deer and smaller mammals.  

Return to the resort for lunch before taking a canoe down the river.  This exciting trip takes place in a traditional dug-out canoe, and there are chances to see crocodiles and deer drinking by the riverbank.  

Before returning to the lodge, there is a trip to the elephant breeding center where the elephants are housed. 

This evening there is much excitement when a culture program comes to the resort. You will witness, and be obliged to join in, traditional Tharu dances such as the stick dance. This is a fantastic way to round off the day.  Dinner will be served at the end of the program.

Day 3: Bird Watching in Chitwan National Park

  • Time: 7 to 8 hours

After breakfast set off into the surrounding trees for a bit of bird watching. With over 400 species of birds living or migrating through Chitwan National Park, this is a birdwatcher’s paradise.

After lunch enter the jungle again by foot to explore the area and seek wildlife, particularly as the animals come down to the riverside to drink at the end of the day.

Day 4: Departure to onward destination

Dinner is an opportunity to share notes with other travelers on what you saw in the jungle or
send some photographs home through the hotel’s Wi-Fi.
