Chitwan: A wholly different experience! Chitwan is home to one of Asia’s finest National parks and one of the most traditional and conservative indigenous people of Nepal – the Chepangs. Seas of elephant grass ripple, the Terai, magnificent sunsets and a pervasive sense of relaxation engulf you!
Escape into the wilderness…explore the ample flora and fauna on offer at Nepal’s premier Chitwan National Park, a world heritage site and one of the last refuges of the Bengal tiger. Enjoy elephant back (1 of 5 resident elephants) or 4-wheel drive jeep safaris via lush green paddy fields; take nature/jungle walks with trained naturalists – spot rare birds and learn about the multi-faceted medicinal and culinary uses of plants found here; take a boat safari down the peaceful Narayani River…keep watchout for marsh muggers or the endangered gharial crocodiles and migratory water birds; visit the nearby Tiger Tops Swiss Air Primary School; glimpse the intimate lives of the local Tharu tribe with a visit to Tharu Village…see a Tharu Cultural programe; perhaps enjoy an Ox cart ride; relax into the evenings’ waning sun rays with a leisurly stroll and wonderful Nepali food around a blazing log fire!
