Chitwan is well known for Chitwan National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. For quite a while, the Park served as the Royal hunting grounds for Nepal’s Kings and dignitaries and hence the general public was not allowed in for hunting. However, after it was designated as National Park in 1973, it turned into a popular destination for recreational jungle activities. A home to about 68 species of mammals, 544 species of birds, 56 species of herpetofauna and 126 species of fish, the Park offers exciting jungle activities like canoeing, bird watching, jungle drive, nature walk etc. Besides nature and wildlife exploration, Chitwan also provides an opportunity to experience the rich culture of Tharu people, an indigenous community of the region.
