The Bardia National Park, situated in the mid Far-Western region, covering an area of 968 sq. km., is the largest and most unspoilt wilderness area in the Terai. The park, a sub-tropical jungle, is thickly forested with Sal trees and carpeted with grass, savannah and riverine vegetation. The north is bordered by the Churia hill range, the west by the Karnali river, while the Babai river cuts its course almost through the middle of the park. On the southern fringe of the park are villages of the unique and indigenous Tharu people of Western Nepal. Considered as one of the most picturesque national parks in Asia, it teems with rich and diverse flora and fauna.The park is home to more than 30 different mammals including Langur and Rhesus Monkeys, Civets, Hyenas, wild Dogs, Sloth Bears, Otters, Blue Bulls, Deer and wild Boars.
It is a regenerated habitat for endangered animals like the Tigers, Rhinoceros, wild Elephants (the park harbours the biggest wild tusker in Asia), Black Bucks, Gharial and marsh mugger Crocodiles, the great game Fish-masher and the Gangetic Dolphins cavort in the river waters. The unique birds, which number over 350 species, include Cormorants, Egret, Storks, Geese, jungle Fowls, King-fishers and endangered species such as the Bengal Florican, silver-eared Mesia and the Saurus Crane, thus, making the park a truly bird watcher's paradise. Within the park are several open grasslands (plants) where game viewing is excellent. Many of the forest tracks, throughout the park, also offer excellent game viewing and when you can take in the sights and sounds of the wild without necessarily having to give up on your creature comforts, what more could you ask for?
