Discover Wildlife

Located in the great alluvial plain of Terai, the Chitwan national park, in the south of the country, is one of the UNESCO world heritage sites. It is an old royal reserve, and shelters almost four hundred unicorn rhinoceroses, over 450 bird species, grey leopards, bears, monkeys, crocodiles, Ganges dolphins... Exceptional wildlife to be discovered on elephant back, between jungle and savannah. Sagarmatha park, in Khumbu, includes a great part of Mount Everest. There you can see the main goat antelope species and Tibet antelopes. In the north of the country, along the border with Tibet, Langtang park houses bears, fallow deers and snow leopards. You will encounter these high altitude felines in the region of Dolpo, the largest natural park in Nepal, along with wild yaks and Pamir sheep. Very favourable to animal watching, Bardia park, in the south west of the country, is famous for its royal Bengal tigers (there are approximately two hundred in Nepal), its wild elephants and giant crocodiles.
