It is a beautiful journey on the Kathmandu- Chitwon highway, through Nepal's middle hill & Tarai, to the Royal Chitwon National Park. By making an early start we shall aim to reach our hotel for a late lunch. En-route, we will make few stops to look for country life, birds like vultures, eagles, Wallcreeper & Braun Dipper in Trisuli River and its rocky walls. This evening we shall paddle down the Rapti River in search of water birds, crocodile or go for Elephant safari looking for Rhinos and Tigers.

The Park comprises 1000 sq.km of Sal and riverine jungle and magnificent environment with a great variety of wildlife than any other area of Nepal. Over 480 species of birds have been recorded here and we can expect to see nearly one third of these, as well as many mammals and reptiles. These are likely to include the endangered Great One Horned Rhinoceros, wild boar, sambar, muntjc, spotted and hog deers, rhesus and hanuman monkeys, and possibly marsh muggar and fish eating gharial crocodiles. Tiger, leopard, sloth bears, and gaur (wild bison) are all common and regularly seen by the lucky ones!
