Tourists visit this region for one thing--the wildlife park. It's well worth the journey since you can see the widest variety of wildlife in Nepal. I recommend the jeep safari as part of your package; your best chances for seeing more wildlife will come from...More

Chitwan is a World Heritage Site and supports healthy populations of Indian Rhinoceros, Mugger Crocodiles, Gavials (fish-eating crocodiles), and many other species that are easy to see, as well as tigers and leopards that are more elusive. This is certainly at the top of the...More

Great jungle park, avoid the jeeps and elephants, go on foot at dawn or dusk to really see animals up close and in peace

Many kinds of forest here, very relaxing but always looking for the elusive rhino...which we saw! Lots of birds and gorgeous views across the river.

One thing I forgot to mention about getting to Chitwan is that I very strongly recommend flying. We took a bus to arrive and our 5-6 hour journey ended up taking 12 hours. We were lucky, as we met one group of people stuck on the road for 33 hours! We couldn't risk missing our departure flight back to our home country so we decided to fly from Chitwan to Khatmandu and this was worlds better. From wheels up to wheels down was 18 minutes! The process of paying for the tickets was a bit tricky since the card reader at the airport was not working so we had to walk around until we found the the off-site building where I could pay, but it was so worth the extra money to fly and have the rest of the day in Khatmandu. There is no amount of money that could get me to take the drive from Khatmandu to Chitwan again in the future, none.
