Chitwan National Park Tour
Chitwan National Park Tour Overview
The United Nations has declared Chitwan National Park a world heritage site. When you visit there, you will see why it is such a great place. Here in the mountain nation of Nepal is also a place of dense jungle where wild elephants, tigers and rhinos still roam. Their species, which have been endangered, have been making a comeback in this park. It remains one of the great success stories in the preservation of endangered animals in the world.
Chitwan offers many great opportunities. There are elephants safaris, jeep safaris, cultural experiences and more. The lodges in Chitwan range from rustic to luxurious. There is also great shopping experiences in the main town of Sauraha. In this village, you will see elephants wandering down the streets, and occasionally a rhino will make its way to the edge of town. There is also the elephant breeding center where you can see baby elephants (and they are big babies. They weigh about 100 kg at birth!).
Chitwan is an amazing place. Global Axis Travels?offers you some incredible opportunities to explore this great park which is a gem in Nepal.
