Location

Nepal

Nepal, the tiny Himalayan country that lies in South Asia and sandwiched between two giant neighbors, China and India, is named after Kathmandu, the capital city of the country. Nepal is an exciting jumble of fascinating land of ancient history, vibrant culture, and tolerant people. It is one among the richest county in the world in term of bio-diversity due to her unique geographical position and altitude variation. Although Nepal is a small country of around 147,181 square kilometers, it contains a huge variation in altitude from the Terai at near sea level to the highest point on earth, Mount Everest at 8,848 meters.

Nepal was concealed in mystery until the 1950s when its borders were first opened to the outside world. Nepal has now become a very exciting travel destination among the travelers around the globe and famous in the world as the country of the third pole where Lord Buddha ‘Gautama Buddha’, the founder of Buddhist religion, was born about 2,600 years ago.

Nepal is also known as the home of Gurkhas, the roof of the world, the land of legend and beauty, the country of white coal, etc. The Nepalese people always welcome their visitor with smiling face and 'namaste' to their unique Himalayan country. The whole country is cradled at the base of magnificent Himalayan peaks which make it a land of fascination, a place to return again and again to visit new friends and to explore the next base camp or summit.

Chitwan National Park

Chitwan National Park (932 square kilometers), the first park in Nepal, was established in 1973 and lies in the central lowlands. Parsa (499 square kilometers) is adjacent to Chitwan and was designated in 1984. Together they comprise sal and revering forests and grasslands and extend into the Siwalik Hills, which are forested with Chir pine and Sal.

Chitwan is famous for its large mammals, which include tiger, leopard, Indian rhinoceros, and gaur. There are 489 bird species recorded at Chitwan, a larger number than in any of Nepal’s other protected areas. The park is home to more than 50 species of mammals, 525 species of birds, and 55 species of reptiles and amphibians. The park consists of a diversity of ecosystems including the Churia Hills and the stretched floodplains of the Rapti and Narayani River. The park also supports a larger number of nationally threatened birds than other national parks.
