Chitwan National Park Tour is the most famous 3 Days and 2 Nights jungle safari available in the heart of the oldest preserved area in Nepal. It lies in the south central Terai Lowlands and is mostly known for its biodiversity. Moreover, its dense forests and grassy plains are home to rare mammals like One-Horned Rhinos and Royal Bengal Tigers. The park also shelters numerous species of birds, including the giant hornbill. Other wild animals here include spotted deers, gharial (Gavialis gangeticus), leopards and sloth bears.


Furthermore, Chitwan National Park is also the first national park of Nepal. It was established in 1973 as the Royal Chitwan National Park and was granted the status of a World Heritage Site in 1984. It covers an area of 952.63 km2 (367.81 sq mi) in the subtropical Inner Terai lowlands of south-central Nepal. Additionally, it ranges in elevation from about 100 m in the river valleys to 815 m in the Sivalik Hills.


Tiger Conservation Unit

In the north and west of the protected area the Narayani-Rapti river system forms a natural boundary to human settlements. Adjacent to the east of Chitwan National Park is Parsa National Park, contiguous in the south is the Indian Tiger Reserve Valmiki National Park. The coherent protected area of 2075 km2 (801 sq mi) represents the Tiger Conservation Unit (TCU) Chitwan-Parsa-Valmiki, which covers a 3549 km2 (1,370 sq mi) huge block of alluvial grasslands and subtropical moist deciduous forests.


Not to mention, the park is therefore considered to be one of the most popular tourist destinations in Nepal. Nepal is not only for the Himalayas and trekking, but also for its spectacular diversity in wildlife, lush vegetation, vibrant culture and traditions.

Checklist for Chitwan National Park Tour

As bright colors like red and yellow make it difficult for you to blend in with your surroundings, darker hues like black, brown, gray or tan are most preferable. The idea is to blend into the bush so that wildlife is undisturbed, and you can view them in their natural habitat. Moreover, as you will be in the middle of the jungle, it is highly recommended that you wear full sleeve clothes even in the summer to avoid any insect bites and skin rashes. Additionally, comfortable shoes that cover your feet effectively are also recommended.


During the afternoon, sunscreen is very crucial with proper eye shades as well. You might as well carry a bottle of water to stay hydrated.


Furthermore, it is recommended to dress in layers if you are planning for the tour during mid winter to keep yourself warm. Similarly, if you want to go on your adventure during the monsoon, you must have proper rain wear.


Despite the proper preparations, you should constantly be ready for insect bites and rashes. It is therefore advisable to keep an insect repellent with you throughout the tour.


Best time to visit the Chitwan National park

The district of Chitwan has extreme heat in the summer and extreme cold in the winter. So, planning for the best time will make your vacation more enjoyable and memorable. It is however best to avoid the months of July and August during the monsoon rain.
