Chitwan National Park
Chitwan National Park is the most visited protected area in Nepal. A World Natural Site Elephant ride declared by UNESCO. The park has more than 500 Asian one-horned rhinoceros roaming the sprawling grass and wetland in the park and its surrounding areas. Some 100 nocturnal Royal Bengal Tigers hunt in the dense jungle. The two protected species – tigers and rhinoceros – speak volumes about the rich ecosystem of the park with an area of 932 square kilometers. The diverse ecology is home to around 600 plant species, 50 mammals, 526 birds and 49 amphibians and reptiles. Some of these flora and fauna are endangered.
Reindeer Far from the madding crowd, the seclusion in the park is evident thanks primarily to the two bog bordering rivers – Narayani and Rapti, that mark the entry points to the park. Local and migratory birds around the rivers and the aquatic animals are the first attractions for visitors. The chirping and preening winter birds including water fowl, Brahminy ducks, pintails, bar-headed geese, cormorants are what can be seen as visitors cross the river to reach the park land. This is also the place where migratory birds arrive from as far as Siberia during winter. Sharing the arboreal home with these birds are other animals like rhesus monkey, grey langur, python, different kinds of snakes, among others. On the ground there are four species of deer, including the hog deer, sloth deer, barking deer and chittals.

Bardia National Park
Bardia National Park is the largest national park and wilderness area in the Terai and has excellent wildlife-watching opportunities. Bardia is often described as what Chitwan was like 30 years ago, before being overrun by tourism. The park protects 968 sq km of sal forest and grassland, and together with the new 550 sq km Banke National Park it protects one of Asia’s largest stretches of tiger habitat. That’s a lot of habitat, but even though tiger numbers are increasing after their recent demise during the Maoist insurgency, you’ll still need exceptionally good luck to see one here.
There are also healthy populations of wild elephants and one-horned rhinos among the 30 species of mammals living here. Bardia also has more than 250 species of birds, including the endangered Bengal florican and sarus crane. Gharial and marsh mugger crocodiles and Gangetic dolphins are occasionally spotted on rafting and canoe trips along the Geruwa River, the eastern channel of the Karnali River
Bardia National Park suffered greatly during the Maoist insurgency. Tourism dried up, lodges were mothballed and the wildlife was hit hard by poaching owing to inadequate protection. The good news is that all this is now being reversed, and while it’s a long, arduous journey out here, it’s well worth the effort.
