Wildlife & National Parks

Nepal is a very geographically and geologically diverse country, from the hot, steamy plains bordering India to the mid-hills area to the high, snow-capped Himalaya. The jungles in the southern parts of Nepal are only a half-hour to an hour’s flight away. The Chitwan National Park, Bardiya National Park, Parsa Wildlife Reserve, and Shuklaphanta National Park are home to incredible varieties of mammals, reptiles, and birds.

Nepal is truly unrivaled in its beauty. Yet unbeknown to most, there is so much more to this small Asian country than the rugged Himalayan mountain range. In the lowlands lay lush jungles, incredible wildlife viewing opportunities, and rich flora and fauna. Conservation efforts in the last few decades have ensured that the Nepalese landscape has remained largely untouched by the human hand and that wildlife populations continue to grow.

As a result, the Royal Bengal tiger population has increased by over 60% in the last decade, and Nepal has carved itself in the history books by becoming home to some of the last remaining populations of the one-horned rhino. Located on the hot, jungly plains of Nepal, the Chitwan and Bardia National Parks, and the Koshi Tappu and Parsa Wildlife Reserves are the best places to see wildlife in Nepal.

A beautiful Himalayan country is sure to boast a wide variety of flora and fauna. With an increase in population and the effects of global warming, necessary steps need to be taken in order to ensure that plants and animals have their life going on. A national park is one such protected area for the special species of flora and fauna of the region. In Nepal, there are numerous national parks to conserve and protect wildlife and their natural habitat.
