Chitwan National Park: Nepal’s first national park is the best-known site for bird watching. The World Heritage site in the Terai region, the Nepalese lowland, covers an area of 932km² / 3058 ft². The wildlife reserve at the center of the park is home to grasslands and subtropical lush-green forests, and provides a protected space for 540 bird species, over half of Nepal’s total bird population and two-thirds of the country’s globally threatened bird species. Other endangered species like Bengal tigers, one-horned rhinoceroses, leopards, elephants, antelopes, monkeys, and other wild creatures live there. Safaris can be done safely in a chair in a jeep. If you prefer to walk, you will be accompanied by a guide or by a preferable ornithologist.
