Chitwan Jungle Safari at Chitwan National Park: A Wildlife Haven

Chitwan National Park is a beautiful and untouched area in south-central Nepal. It is a really big park, covering 932 square kilometers, and it is even a UNESCO World Heritage site!

The park is home to lots of amazing animals, like the one-horned rhinoceros, Royal Bengal Tiger, Spotted Leopard, Wild Elephant, Gharial Crocodiles, and over 650 different kinds of birds. It is a special place where you can see all these animals in their natural habitat, and it is really important to protect this park so that these animals can continue to thrive in their natural habitat. 

Brief history and establishment of Chitwan as a national park

Chitwan National Park has a fascinating history that dates back to 1973 when it was established as the country’s first national park. Once a hunting ground for Nepal’s ruling class and aristocrats, it underwent a transformative shift to safeguard its rich biodiversity. The park’s declaration aimed to preserve the population of wildlife, especially the endangered one-horned rhinoceros. 

This initiative marked an important moment in Nepal’s conservation efforts, leading to strict protection measures and the restoration of habitats within the park. Over the years, Chitwan has evolved into a haven for nature enthusiasts and researchers, drawing visitors from across the earth to witness its diverse flora and fauna in their natural habitat.
