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.
