    Incredible destination
    Chitwan is an incredible destination worth exploring, showcasing breathtaking natural wonders. However, it's disheartening to witness the treatment of elephants there. To have a positive experience while respecting animal welfare, I recommend engaging in activities such as jeep safaris and jungle walks while opting out of elephant rides and visiting the elephant breeding center.

    Overall great experience visiting Chitwan National Park.
    Awesome experience visiting Chitwan National park. Good sighting of Rhino, elephant and deers. Nice flora and fauna. No rush of lot vehicles only few vehicles inside. Lot of peace visiting this national park.

    Great for wildlife lovers
    I went on the jeep tour as well as a short walking tour outside the main park and saw many animals like the greater one-horned rhinos, elephants, spotted deer, macaque and langur monkeys, crocodiles, gharials, and many different types of birds like the Asian openbills and Alexandrine parakeets. It was like NatGeo live! The jeep tour was well-organised. I’ll also suggest actively looking around for the animals as the guide can only see in one direction at any one time, so having more people looking out meant spotting more animals. Skip the elephant rides and elephant breeding centre. For wildlife, I’ll also recommend 20,000 Lakes nearby for a slightly different experience!

    SAW A BEAR BUT NO TIGER
    Chitwan national park is huge so one only sees a portion of it as with all NP no guarantee of seeing animals (sometimes that memo just doesn't get to the animals in time LOL) BUT The safari that had been book by tour company that I was travelling with departed at 12.40pm Everyone knows that safaris are conducted dawn and dusk not in the heat of the day. Also backburning was being conducted so not many animals are going to stick around. BUT Moving on so having been driven around for 2 hours with not even a whisker to be seen and a comfort stop we set of again like Uncle Arthur and we slowly started to see some animals but never the elusive tiger. Maybe I should have taken up a chair in the main town square of an evening as had been told that rhinos and tiger do visit of a night. I did see however a bear distant and to quick for a photo but I saw it. I also think that drivers should be in contact with each other so can be made aware of location of animals and a scout also to locate animals. Still an enjoyable afternoon driving around the park and an amazing sunset

    Canoe Ride : One of the best experience
    Chitwan National Park is the home for rhino, tiger, bear, elephants and other mammals. It was lucky that we witnessed wild elephant, peacock, rhino, crocodile and many exotic birds on our half day safari. But the best was our canoe ride for 1hr in the evening. It's dangerously beautiful. When u have all crocodiles and rhinos drinking water in a foots length.

    Wildlife paradise
    When this Ghariyal, Magar crocodile conversation area's perimeter was first put in place, there was no animal conservation area in whole of Asia. To reach Asia's first place to protect Asiatic Rhino, you can fly to Bharatpur airport and take taxi to Chitwan National Park. Not flying, you can reach the place for elephant jungle safari in Chitwan Nepal by driving along the scenic route. We recommend a full day. Early morning on those magnificent elephant back. After lunch until sunset, safari by jeep is best. Mind you, you will only see a small part of this pioneer conversation area in inner Terai of Nepal in a single day. The animals and birds you come across will take breath away. Pioneer in elephant conservation, bird watching paradise in Nepal.

    Memorable Jungle Safari
    Best trip of my life ever with the Chitwan National Park. When we entered to Jungle we found Rhinos, Deer, Peacock, Birds, and many more wild animals. Thank you Mr. Dinesh Giri a Tour guide and Jeep driver for your great effort to show us wild animals. The National Park Management to maintain the jungle properly, due to trees on the ground have made little difficult for us to do Jungle Safari. The rest was amazing and wonderful. I enjoyed it a lot. Must visit place in Chitwan.

Elephants are treated merely like tourist attractions, they have to walk against their will, carry weight and so on. While having our tour it was possible to hear them screaming and suffering. The guides talked about the animals like attractions. The atmosphere was not at all what we all were expecting: a natural park with free animals. Very sad and disappointing, full of fake advertising and animal abuse.

Chitwan National Park is the most popular place to see the wild animals, all kinds of rare birds and exotic animals in Nepal can be seen here, and various experience activities, such as canoeing, elephant riding, forest hiking, etc., are very fun!

Heads UP!!!!

Greetings Travelers! One of the natural wonders of Nepal is Chitwan National Park. But Let The Buyer Beware!!!! A very difficult road trip of 8
hours to get to jump off point. Seriously bad roads. So you must have jeep or SUV transport for the roads. Booked stay at Green Temple Tiger. Place fine, staff very good, guides excellent. However, big caveat….you cannot stay in the park. Must stay in village outside of park. Downside, crazy people in village playing very loud disruptive music late and also at 5 am, completely disturbing the otherwise peaceful ambience. Local authorities doing nothing to stop this. All this affecting whatever place you stay. However, the jungle is really wonderful, Mother Nature at her best. Journey very expensive. Some deceptive advertising, and had to give the what for to the management. If you want to go, best and most cost effective to fly to Bharatpur airport from Kathmandu. Many wild animals in jungle, a total joy to behold. Safe travels everyone!!!

We just returned from a 12 day Nepal visit. our time in Chitwan Park was OK, but not maybe up to world standards as far as viewing. A little too much on Deer and birds . Things far away in river were like logs or slightly moving debris. Luckily or maybe they have a trained Rhino pair that did show up on the jeep trail stopping us and yes, close and the highlight of our 4 hr jeep tour. OK . the little canoe trip to cross river was not bad . Our bottom line is we could have stayed longer in other places and skipped Chitwan, regardless the experience was average.
