Established in 1973, Chitwan National Park (a UNESCO World Heritage Site), which is located in the lowlands of south-central Nepal, is rated the best park in Asia, and is by far the most popular wildlife sanctuary in the country. It also bears significant historical importance. The park preserves a unique ecosystem significantly valuable to the whole world. This 932 sq. km area of low, heavily forested hills is a great place to relax and experience the tranquility. Visitors will be going deep into the jungle on elephant-back or four-wheel drive vehicle to view wild animals in their natural habitat. Other thrills are a canoe ride, nature walks, bird watching excursions, and village tours. In the evening, local Tharu people perform their cultural dance by the fire or the expert naturalist’s lectures on the history of parks, animals, birds, etc.
This National Park offers dense habitat and an abundance of wildlife; one may see royal Bengal tigers, leopards, one horned rhinoceros, wild elephants, marsh crocodiles, wild boar, sloth bears, or several species of deer, including spotted, barking, Samber, and hog deer. There are also more than 350 species of birds. In addition to the animals, one can visit the local Tharu people in their village, and experience their unique culture and traditions.

NOTE: Your safety is of the utmost concern whilst you are travelling with Adventure Club Trek. We will make every effort possible to follow the original itinerary but we reserve the right to change that itinerary if a segment of it becomes a safety issue. Certain mountain regions are remote, natural disasters can happen, weather conditions can decline and there can be illness or an injury. To avoid dangerous situations we may occasionally have to make changes to the itinerary to ensure everyone’s safety. That having been said, Adventure Club Trek will strive to provide you with the best possible trekking experience and to keep your safety our number one priority. We thank you for your understanding.
Prior to all the treks and expeditions, Adventure Club Trek hosts a pre-trip meeting in Kathmandu. The primary purpose of meeting is to provide an opportunity for individuals to ask questions about the forthcoming trek and to introduce other team members. The meeting covers topics as diverse as personal equipment and acclimatization and usually involves a hike and some skills training. Pre-trip meeting is very important in order to have a better preparation of the trekking.
Best Time to Visit National park
Autumn (Sept. to Dec.) and spring (March to May)is the best season when the sub-tropical weather is at its best. Especially during autumn you will not only get to fully enjoy the jungle activities but the clear weather will also help spot the elusive wild animals.
Birendra booked for me a 3 days/ 2 nights combo in Chitwan National Park, with all inclusive in the hostel + the return bus to Kathmandu. He is very friendly and gave me lots of advice of what to do once in the park, e.g safari walk, elephant ride... The choice of accomodation and the activities were very pertinent and adapted to my needs, I truly had a good view of the national park.
I couldn't do more than recommand to my friends this trust worthy company.
