Chitwan National Park
The Chitwan National Park, lying south of Kathmandu adjacent to the Indian border, is the oldest and one of the largest national parks in the world. In 1984, it was listed as a World Heritage Site. This lowland has a subtropical climate producing tropical fruits and vegetables - the sweetest ever tasted. Apart from the 43 species of mammals, you will encounter the endangered one horned rhino, the royal bengal tiger, wild elephants, etc.
Keep your eyes upward as over 500 species of birdlife inhabit the tree tops. Chitwan was widely used by Royalty for hunting. Malaria was eradicated in 1954 so many ethnic groups migrated to this area.
