Topping the list of ‘Things to do in Asia’, Jungle Safari in Chitwan National Park is the adventurous journey into the Chitwan, which when translated becomes ’The heart of the Jungle.’ Jungle Safari in Chitwan National Park is a thrilling journey through the subtropical and riverine woods which are chiefly dominated by Sal trees. It gives us an opportunity to view many ferocious beasts, wide varieties of tropical flowers and numerous local and migratory birds.
Enlisted as the UNESCO World Heritage Site, Chitwan National Park stretches over an area of 932sqkm. It covers the Churia Hills, lakes and plains of Rapti, Narayani and Reu Rivers. Prior to being declared as the first National Park in 1970, the forest in the inner Terai was being used as the hunting Reserve for Rana families and their guests till the year 1950.
Once arriving at the gates of Chitwan National Park, we will get to choose from the multiple options to explore the deep woods. Jungle Walk, canoe trips, jeep safari, bird watching and elephant back ride are exciting ways to explore the park.
The trees in the park are secure enough to take a jungle walk. But you need to be cautious not to walk alone in the jungle. Always travel with a guide and follow the
instructions of your guide.
The amazing canoe trip along the turbulent Rapti River will bless us with an opportunity to have a glimpse of crocodiles and water birds.
Jeep Safari is an exciting way of having close observation of raging rhinos, deer and other wild lives. The drive along the bumps of the dirt road will be a ride of your life.
Diverse species of birds like florican bird, red- headed trogon, bareheaded geese and hornbill along with some endangered species have found their home in the woods of the park. In the winter, birds migrate to these woods from distant places of the world like Siberia.
