Explore Nepal's first national park at Chitwan National Park, a sprawling, World Heritage-listed wildlife conservancy. The area served as hunting grounds for Nepal's ruling class in the 19th century and for many years in the mid-20th century saw egregious poaching. The park now covers 932 sq km (360 sq mi), is home to over 700 species of wildlife, and contains several conservation projects within its boundaries, including for Bengal tigers, rhinoceroses, and gharial crocodiles. Look into the various lodging and guided tour opportunities on the premises, as well as the museum and Hindu religious site near its headquarters.

  • Commercialized but still beautiful and most visited national park of Nepal. Can have Jeep Safari, Elephant Safari, Canoe Riding, etc. activities. Easy to reach by tourist or local bus, jeep, car, bike and have many good quality resorts here.
  • This place is one of the best place to hangout with family and friend at holidays . There are so many hotel to stay there. The jungle safari by the elephant is the best to visit the animal and birds. There are so many crocodile, Elephant, Tiger, Rhinoceros etc... The boating is also the awesome.
  • Great park. Interesting military security. We have seen many species but no tiger 😯 It's a huge park though so maybe they went other way 😉 Nonetheless worth a jeep trip. Beautiful views. Wild nature and sounds and incredible animals.
  • Best time to visit Chitwan National Park is April. Although rhino n tiger were elusive. In all was a fun filled trip to the park.
  • The scenery and the animals inspire most of the beauty of the place. Good place to visit for adventurous person. Food there is also amazing.
