Narayani River, Chitwan National Park

(4.5/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
Take a dugout canoe trip along Narayani River and observe awe-inspiring wildlife with mugger crocodiles, one-horned rhinos, elephants, deer, and various rare birds. As part of the Chitwan National Park, nearby attractions also include a baby elephant nursery and a crocodile breeding center, where you can stop along the way. Snap plenty of pictures as you float down one of the largest rivers in Nepal, near the Indian border. Villages within the park organize boat trips, most notably Sauraha. Bring a zoom lens with you and some small change to tip informed drivers. Narayani River is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Chitwan National Park Edition.

  • Great exciting experience - you can see many crocodiles and birds around river bank and sometimes you may see rhino too. 
  • Regular package does not include canoe rides, though one of the best things to do in Chitwan. Its a slow, smooth sail along the jungle and crocodiles. Usual charges is NPR 500.00 
  • Go for a canoe ride along the river and then walk back the 1.5 hours or so, to the Park entrance. The crocodiles smile at you and hope you fall in -- but not to worry, it was safe enough!
