Chitwan Wild Life Safari - 06 Days

Soothing canoe ride at the Chitwan National Park in Nepal.

Formerly known as the “Royal Chitwan National Park”, this 932 sq kms massive conservation park is located in the subtropical plains of the Chitwan District, a part of the Inner Terai lowlands of south-central Nepal. The Chitwan National Park was established in 1973 and granted the status of a World Heritage Site in 1984. The park has dense tropical jungles, teeming with diverse wildlife and exotic birds. The name ‘Chitwan’ has several possible meanings, but the most authentic literal translation is the combination of two Nepali words- “chit or chita”, meaningheart” and “wan or ban”, meaning, “jungle”. This sums up the meaning of Chitwan to to be the ‘the heart of the jungle’’.  

Ride on the cushiony back of the mammoth or in a convertible four-wheeler, witnessing an array of exotic wildlife in their natural habitat; you will feel what it is like to be in the jungle out there amidst the dexterous predators!! Or you could even take a canoe cruise on the one of the calm jungle rivers nearby. Not just that, a subtle nature walk, bird watching excursions, village hikes, cultural tours etc. are also on the cards. The park is an abode to over 43 species of animals and is one of the most popular Safari destinations in the region. Truly, the Chitwan Wildlife Safari gets you real intimate with the jungle; not a surprise if you start considering it as your second home!!

Tribhuwan International Airport, Kathmandu, the only international airport in Nepal.Day 01: Arrival in Kathmandu (1400m)

At the hotel, you will be greeted with welcome drinks. We then have a quick pre-trip meeting where you will be briefed on the necessary formalities and your tour itinerary. You can spend the remaining half of the day, resting Or if lying flat is too unbecoming for you, stroll around the nearby places just to get the feel of what this city is like. Overnight at hotel in Kathmandu; breakfast included.

 

 

Day 02: Kathmandu city sightseeing (1400m)Pashupatinath Temple, the most revered Hindu shrine located in Kathmandu, Nepal.

Short stroll in the evening yesterday might not have acquainted you to Kathmandu. So we want to make sure that you know this city like you know yourself. Once done with your breakfast, let’s hop in to our reserved vehicle and then head on for a comfy ride with one of our experienced city guides. You will be visiting the most renowned historical/cultural landmarks in Kathmandu. Our guide will take you to the Pasupatinath Temple (the most revered Hindu shrine), Kathmandu (Basantapur) Durbar Square and Boudhanath (the Maha Stupa).

The unique 'Tharu Stick Dance', a part of Tharu Cultural show in Chitwan, Nepal.Day 03: Drive from Kathmandu to Chitwan (150m/4hours) 

After that early succulent breakfast in your hotel, you will meet your guide who will accompany you on a drive all the way to Chitwan. About 4 hours of mixed drive- smooth at times and bumpy at another, you will arrive at Chitwan. The hot air can be felt, as Kathmandu to Chitwan is literally a nose dive in terms of the elevation-from a staggering 1400m to meager 150m. We check in to our hotel and relax for some time.  Next, we attend a brief orientation session regarding the activities to follow. After lunch, our half day Chitwan adventure commences. Today, it is going to be more of a cultural tour. We go about visiting the “Tharu” village. “Tharus” are the indigenous people here, so interacting with them could be a great fun. Most of the Tharus speak their own language but they understand a great deal of Nepali language too. So your guide will be able to help you to interpret the conversation. From Tharu village, we head on towards the river, to relish the splendid sunset view. In the evening, we witness an enticing cultural show of the Tharus that includes their very unique “stick dance”. Overnight at hotel in Chitwan on full board (breakfast, lunch and dinner) basis with jungle activities. 

 

Day 04: Jungle activities in Chitwan National ParkRoyal Bengal Tiger, one of the major attractions of the Chitwan National Park, Nepal.

Another consecutive day to get intimate with the wild!! Our sweet slumber at the resort breaks with a wake- up call, coupled with steaming cup of tea/coffee. We then gear up for an array of jungle activities at the Chitwan National Park. Let’s begin with a comfy ride on the cushiony back of the mammoth. Piercing the heart of the jungle, you might find yourself freakishly close to many of the wild beasts out there; well, you might just get a little shaky, but don’t worry, being on the top of the huge pachyderm, you are as safe as heaven. We have our pack lunch somewhere in the woods, amidst the twittering birds, swaying trees and prowling animals; something really different Elephant Breeding Center at Chitwan National Park in Nepal.compared to the conventional milieu of our regular lunch table. At one time we will be riding on a growling jeep, while at other time we find ourselves on a boat cruising smoothly on the quiet waters. Our eyes hungrily catch glimpse of every single component visible around the massive frontier of the park; be it a scary king cobra, a stout one- horned rhino, a rugged mugger crocodile or a graceful Bengal tigress!  Not just that an array of exotic floras and beautiful birds are certainly going to woo you. We also visit the Elephant Breeding Center. A dugout canoe ride is also on the cards. This gives us a profound idea about the habitat of the king of the waters- the crocodiles!  Besides, a subtle jungle walk could also be very soothing. Thus, an adventure packed day comes to an end. Overnight at hotel in Chitwan on full board (breakfast, lunch and dinner) basis with jungle activities.
 

 

Thamel, a popular spot for souvenir shopping in Kathmandu, Nepal.Day 05: Drive from Chitwan to Kathmandu (1400m/4hours)

We then walk back to our hotel for breakfast, followed by a drive back to Kathmandu. You will be transferred to your hotel. The remaining time is on your own. You can perhaps have some souvenir shopping at Thamel. May be that in addition to your interesting trip anecdotes, you would also want to take back some stuff for your friends and relatives.
