Royal Chitwan National Park (RCNP)
Royal Chitwan National Park covers an area of 932 sq km and it is the oldest national park of Nepal. Established in 1973, it was granted the status of a World Heritage Site in 1984. The RCNP is located at the foot of the Himalayas in the Terai region and this region possesses a beauty that’s totally unexpected in a country known mainly for soaring snow-covered mountains. Royal Chitwan National Park is considered to be one of Asia’s finest national parks popular for dense concentration of wildlife and its top class tourist lodges, which provide the opportunity to see animals in their natural environment. The main attractions are the Bengal tigers and the last populations of single-horned Indian Rhinoceros (Rhinoceros unicornis), but the park is home to at least 43 species of mammals, 450 species of birds, and 45 species of amphibians and reptiles. A few of these animals include leopards, blue sheep, huge buffalo called gaur, sambars, chitals, rhesus monkeys, langurs and two different types of crocodile. The most popular way of viewing the animals is by taking an elephant ride which has an advantage of getting you more in touch with the natural setting. The area used to be known as the Chitwan Valley. It was a place for big game hunting and until 1951 it was a hunting reserve. At the park there is canoeing, elephant rides, and guided jungle walks.Book Now

The approximately 1500 people who used to live in this valley have been resettled elsewhere. Since farming has ceased in the Babai Valley, natural vegetation is regenerating, making it an area of prime habitat for wildlife.
