CHITWAN NATIONAL PARK
Chitwan Wildlife Chitwan is best known for sightings of the enormous One Horned
Rhino, and is hailed as a conservation success story with the population being brought back from the brink by timely and effective action.
Chitwan Fauna and Flora This park is home to 68 recorded species of mammals ranging from the gigantic Asian Elephant to the smaller
species of rodents, otters and martens. The majestic royal Bengal tiger, leopards, wild dogs and sloth bear may also be spotted here.
Chitwan is a bird watcher's paradise. Due to its proximity to the Himalayas, the park also shelters winter and summer migrants along with its more
than 600 native bird species. Indigenous and migrant species like Great Hornbill, Ruddy Shelduck, Pied Kingfisher and Red Headed Trogon can also be found.
Dense forests, large grasslands and rivers mean that various species of birds from different habitats can make this region their home. Strict conservation
policies and military patrolling have decimated poaching incidents and the park has been showing a growth in the Rhino Population.
More than half of
the parks vegetation is comprised of the stately Sal trees (Shorea robusta). These dense thickets are interspersed with grass lands with the gigantic elephant
grass and marshy ox bow lakes where both the marsh mugger crocodile and the long slender snouted fish eater, the Gharial may be spotted. Stunning savannahs
with more than 50 types of grasses, including 20 feet tall elephant grass.
