The Chitwan National Park stands today as a successful testimony of nature conservation in South Asia. This is the first national park of Nepal established in 1973 to preserve a unique eco-system significantly valuable to the whole world. The park, covering the protected area of 932 sq. km., is situated in subtropical inner Terai lowlands of southern central part of Nepal. The park gained much wider recognition in the world when UNESCO included the area on the list of World Heritage Site in 1984. It should also be emphasized that only a very small part of the national park is used for tourism. A great majority of the land, particularly in the hills, remains unvisited and therefore undisturbed. This is ideal for wildlife and also assists in preserving an element of mystery for humans as large areas are still unexplored and our knowledge of what birds and animals the park contains is by no means finalized. Thus, there is always the possibility of making new discoveries!
By Road: The six hour's drive on the Kathmandu-Narayanghat Highway follows the Trishuli River or the six hour's drive on the Pokhara- Narayanghat Highway both offers you a continually changing landscape from the mountains of the Himalayas to the plains of Terai through colorful Tharu Villages.
By Raft: One of the most exciting ways to travel to the Park is to raft down the Trishuli River (from Kathmandu) or Seti River (from Pokhara). For two or more days, you can float down the river while experiencing its numerous rapids and seeing a variety of village life, flora and fauna along its banks.
By Air: A 20 minutes flight will bring you from Kathmandu to Bharatpur or Megauli where you will be met by our naturalist and will be taken to the Park. If you are in a group, there are charter flights available from Pokhara, Biratnagar (Koshi Tappu), Bhairawa (Lumbini) and Nepalgunj (Bardia).
