Narayani River, Chitwan National Park
(4.5/5 based on 220+ 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.

  • We enjoyed seeing the crocodiles and birds along the way. Take a guide to explain the local wildlife. 
  • Done the canoe ride in the morning and it was very peaceful. Great scenery and some great crocodiles, too :) Do not miss it when in Chitwan. 
  • Cool. Just a little more time. In General, a wonderful feeling-when you pass in a canoe past warming himself in the Sun of the crocodile))
