A link to Chitwan National Park was e-mailed
This heart of the Nepalese jungle was the hunting ground for Nepal’s rulers beginning in the 19th century. By the 1950s it was also a coveted spot for big-game hunters from around the world who came to shoot tigers, leopards and rhinoceroses to adorn their dens. It took until the 1970s for the government to realize Nepal was losing a great natural resource. Today, at least 43 species of mammals call the national park (and World Heritage Site) home. Safari lodges dot the park -- Tiger Tops is the best known -- but day trips are also possible. Pack your camera and shoot to your heart’s content.
