Considered some of the best wildlife viewing in Asia, Chitwan National Park offers refuge to many rare and native species amongst its dense jungle and tall grass. Located in the subtropical Terai lowlands, the area is particularly rich in flora and fauna – there is a chance you will spot one-horned rhinos, deer, monkeys and some of over 554 species of bird. For those who are incredibly lucky, the Bengal Tiger is a once-in-a-lifetime spot. The valleys surrounding the park also offer a glimpse of the rural, farming life in Nepal.
Originally established as a rhino sanctuary, Chitwan is home to over 500 of the one-horned beast which you can attempt to spot on elephant rides, canoe trips, jungle walks and jungle safaris. There is also a chance, if you are incredibly lucky, to see Bengal Tigers (there are just over 100 of them here), whilst deer, monkeys, sloth bears and wild elephants are amongst the other residents. There are a massive amount of different bird species in Chitwan, over 500, so bring your binoculars.
On the very outskirts of the National Park , the Landmark Forest Park is an eco-friendly hotel that works side by side with nature. With beautiful gardens, which many of the rooms overlook, a refreshing swimming pool, perfect for a dip after a day in the jungle, and spacious accommodation with a warm ambiance, this hotel is perfectly located for exploring Chitwan National Park.
