Further, Chitwan is among Asia’s finest national park, renowned for its variety and abundance of wildlife, and its top-class tourist lodges and Jungle activities.

Chitwan National park offers a variety of wildlife activities. An elephant safari is unforgettable and you are almost certain to see one horned rhino, various species of deer, monkeys and numerous species of birds. Stalking the animals, whether by an elephant, dugout canoe, jeep or foot is the main activity here. Nevertheless, Chitwan’s big appeal is a pervasive sense of relaxation, which soaks deeper the longer you stay.
