Explore the Best of Chitwan Jungle Safari in Asia's Premier National Park

Chitwan Jungle Safari tour is an exceptional wildlife experience, not just in Nepal but across Asia. Situated in Nepal's southern central Chitwan district, Chitwan National Park is a pristine sanctuary covering 932 sq. km in the subtropical lowlands of the inner Terai, flanked by the Narayani and Rapti Rivers from east to west, and the Siwalik Hill region to the south. This national park holds UNESCO World Heritage status since 1984, but before its establishment in 1973, it was a favored hunting ground for the Ranas and the royal family.

In 1963, the area south of the Rapti River was designated a rhinoceros sanctuary to protect the endangered one-horned rhinoceros. Recognized for its unique ecosystems of international significance, a buffer zone encompassing 750 sq. km around the park was established in 1996. Here, the national park and the local community collaborate on conservation efforts and sustainable resource management.

Chitwan's jungle safari is not just an adventure in wildlife; it also offers opportunities for luxury and relaxation. Experience the thrill of elephant bathing in the Rapti River, observe adorable baby elephants at the Elephant Breeding Center, and savor the breathtaking sunset views from the riverbank. The region has developed a range of resort options, making it one of Nepal's premier wildlife and holiday destinations.

At Himalayan Mentor, we provide comprehensive packages for you to immerse yourself in the wonders of Chitwan National Park. If you dream of wildlife encounters in the heart of the jungle, we can make it a reality. Join us and explore the rich biodiversity of Chitwan on an unforgettable journey.

Flora and Fauna in Chitwan National Park

Chitwan National Park boasts a diverse blend of tropical and subtropical landscapes, featuring around 600 distinct plant species. Approximately 70% of the park is blanketed by towering Sal Trees (Saurea Robusta), while another 20% is covered in lush grasslands comprising over 50 different grass species, including the impressive elephant grass (Saccharum spp.) that can reach heights of up to 8 meters. The remaining 10% is a mosaic of various vegetation types.

The park serves as a sanctuary for a rich array of wildlife, including more than 50 mammal species, over 525 bird species, 150 butterfly species, and 55 different amphibian and reptile species, as well as 126 fish species. Notable among these are endangered animals like the One-horned Rhinoceros, Royal Bengal Tiger, Wild Elephant, Leopard, Deer, Wild Boar, Four-horned Antelope, Monkeys, Pangolin, Golden Monitor Lizard, Marsh Mugger, and two types of crocodiles - the Gharial and Python, among others.

The avian diversity is equally impressive, featuring species such as the majestic Peacock, Giant Hornbill, Bengal Florican, Lesser Florican, Kingfisher, Black Stork, White Stork, Jungle Fowl, Cormorants, Eagles, Vultures, Tailorbird, White Cap River Chat, Parrots, and numerous endemic and exotic birds that migrate from other regions.

Best Time to Visit Chitwan National Park

Chitwan National Park offers a unique experience throughout the year, with varying climatic seasons. Autumn, from October to February, brings pleasant weather with average temperatures around 25°C. March to June witnesses soaring temperatures, sometimes reaching up to 43°C, followed by the onset of the monsoon season from late June to September, leading to river flooding and impassable roads.

In late January, local villagers are permitted to harvest thatch grass, improving wildlife visibility for visitors. The months of September, November, February, and April are ideal for birdwatching, as migratory birds join the resident species, creating spectacular opportunities. During the monsoon, the park flourishes with lush vegetation, and many trees bloom in late winter. Notably, the palash tree, often referred to as the "flame of the forest," and the silk cotton tree showcase stunning crimson flowers visible from a distance.
