|Chitwan Jungle Safari|
Royal Chitwan National Park is synonymous with some of the most rewarding and stimulating wildlife activities in Nepal. The park is approximately 1,000 sq. km. of sub-tropical lowland jungle, five hours by road from Kathmandu or a 25 minute flight. It is home to a multitude of wild animals including the Royal Bengal tiger and the endangered one horn Rhinoceros native to Nepal of which there are less than 1,500 surviving. There have also been more than 420 species of birds recorded inside the park.
Most of our jungle itineraries include a stay at a lodge within the park of which there are only six.
The accommodation is normally in double thatch cottage style rooms. A typical package is based on a two night / three days stay. Activities include elephant safaris, canoeing, bird watching and nature tours conducted by resident professional guides and naturalists.
A visit to Chitwan allows the opportunity to fully experience the contrasts of Nepal. It offers an insight into a very different natural and cultural setting compared to the more familiar visions of the Kingdom. Chitwan fits well into a tour with a varied itinerary and can be easily combined with rafting and treks in the Annapurna region.
Our clients often choose to continue the trip from Royal Chitwan to Lumbini, the birth place of the Buddha, an important pilgrimage site. Others proceed directly to the beautiful lakeside town of Pohkara with arguably the most famous mountain backdrop anywhere in the world.
Chitwan National park wild life standard package includes -(2nights 3 Days or optional longer)
