Photos of Chitwan National Park
of Nepal

Site-Map
Chitwan was Nepal's first national park, created in the 1970's. It is now a National Heritage site. Its neighboring lands are a wildlife refuge and a Tiger refuge, so this is a pristine area. A favorite activity here are elephant safaris that go into the jungle looking for wildlife. Although Tiger sightings are very rare, Rhinos are a common sight.

Elephants can be ridden through the Chitwan Jungle to search for the wildlife there. It is perhaps the only animal that the Rhino fears. Rhinos are easily seen in Chitwan.

Rhinos are pretty common in Chitwan. For some reason, they're afraid of elephants, so viewing them from the back of one keeps you safe from these aggressive and dangerous animals.
