Established in 1973 AD, Chitwan National Park is the most famous and the first National Park of Nepal. Ever since UNESCO declared it as a Natural World Heritage Site, it has been the most popular destination for tourists wanting to have amazing wildlife and flora and fauna filled exploration. Situated in the Central development region of Nepal and covering an area of 932 sq. km, Chitwan National Park is the home to more than 500 Asian one horned rhinoceros and Royal Bengal Tigers along with many other animal and birds species.
Back in 19th Century, Chitwan used to be a favourite hunting ground for Nepal’s ruling class only. Consequently, it became a favourite spot for big game safari hunters in the late nineteenth century which resulted in the drastic decrease in jungle habitat and animal populations. The falling number of Rhino (less than 200) and tiger (less than 30) in the present park, led to the declaration of two-third of the park as sanctuary in 1963. Since then, the wild life population has definitely rebound. Latest census figure shows rhino number are substantially recovering to 503 individuals and tiger number are steadily increasing to 120 adults in 2013.

Here, you will find a lost universe of towering trees and winding vines, pre-notable rhino and ambling elephants, crocodile, python and deer; splendidly colored birds and on the off chance that you are blessed – the heavenly Royal Bengal Tiger. Imparting home to these are different other creatures like rhesus monkey, grey langur, deer, panthers and wild cats and so on.
