Sightseeing

The Royal Chitwan National Park is a sprawling area of low, heavily forested hills bordering India in the south. A veritable haven of wildlife, you can spot a wide variety of animals like the one-horned rhino, elephant, leopard, deer, wild boar and around 400 species of birds. The park, formerly a royal hunting preserve, covers nearly 400 square miles of dense forest and is home to nearly 60 Bengal Tigers. 

Chitwan knows two distinct seasons - the wet monsoon season ( June through September ) and the dry winter monsoon. The best time to visit the park is March through May. The elephant grass at this time of the year grows up to 20ft, which is too short to provide cover to the rhinos who prefer this riverine environment. This is the natural habitat of endangered animals like Bengal Tigers, one-horned rhinoceros and gharial crocodile. The park also secures populations of other endangered species such as wild elephant, four-horned antelope, striped hyena, pangolin, Gangetic dolphin, monitor lizard and python.
