Chitwan & the Terai
The southern lowlands of Nepal are called the Terai, and are well known for the superb wildlife on offer. Chitwan and Bardia National Parks are both well known for the one-horned rhino, deer, Bengal tiger, leopard, muggar crocodile, sloth bear and over 500 species of birdlife. A wildlife holiday to Nepal is fairly unique in that you can head off on jeep, walking, boat and elephant safaris, giving you a superb blend of wildlife experiences. You can easily include Chitwan on a varied tour of Nepal, usually after you have done a trek in the Annapurna Region.
