We will explore the Royal Chitwan National Park (1,000 feet), the oldest national park in Nepal. The park lies in the subtropical inner Terai lowlands of South-Central Nepal. Designated as a World Heritage Site in 1984, the park covers a pristine area with a unique ecosystem of significant value to the world. It contains the Churiya hills, ox-bow lakes and flood plains of Rapti, Reu, and Narayani rivers. Formerly, the Chitwan Valley was well known for big-game hunting and until 1950 was exclusively managed as a hunting reserve for the Rana Prime Ministers and their royal guests from around the world. In 1963, the area south of the Rapti River was demarcated as a rhinoceros sanctuary. In 1970, His late Majesty King Mahendra approved, in principle, the creation of Royal Chitwan National Park.
Our morning begins with a walk and canoe ride through the jungle. Our accompanying naturalist points out the flora and fauna thriving here in Chitwan as we search for endangered birds, such as the Bengal florican and the Black stork.
We return to the lodge for lunch and early afternoon relaxation before we embark on an exploration of the park from an entirely different perspective. A perch on the back of an elephant affords us the perfect vantage point to view all that this park has to offer. Elephants move fluently through the jungle with its thick tree cover and tall elephant grass. There are more than 43 species of mammals, more than 450 species of birds, and more than 45 species of amphibians and reptiles in the park. After our elephant trek, we return to the lodge for a traditional Tharu dance and dinner.
