  • Adventure Activities
    Watching the wonders of Nature
    Watching unique birds and animals from atop an elephant can be quite exciting. Here is a list of activities that can make your trip to the Royal Chitwan National Park more memorable.

    Canoeing on Chitwan Rivers is an excellent way of seeing waterfalls. The park's dolphins and crocodiles, however, are seldom seen. The high temperatures experienced in the park make bathing in the river an attractive pastime. Water-holes are also lured for a swim. Watching the elephants showering is very interesting.

    Elephant Tracking
  • Elephant rides are major Chitwan attractions. Wild boar, red deer and other creatures of the jungle can be seen, in the morning and evening especially, from atop the tall pachyderms. One more advantage is that rhinos can be approached without danger. Apart from the animals, luxuriant vegetation and jungle chorus - different sounds in different parts of the day - make the ride a memorable experience.

    Jeep Safari
    Jungle safaris make it possible to explore the length and breadth of the National Park.

    White- Water Rafting
    White-water rafting expedition and jungle safari together represent the ultimate adventure. The river trip itself takes two to three days, commencing at or upstream of Mugling and ending in Narayanghat.

    Animal Watching from Hides
    Apart from safaris on foot and elephant back, hides offer animal watchers another way of getting what they want. Called machans in the local language, these wooden towers are usually erected in clearings crossed by game paths. The best time to watch red deer and rhinos is early morning and evening.
