Rhino Royal Chitwan ParkRoyal Chitwan Park is the home of One-Horned Rhino, Royal Bengal Tiger.

Why Royal Chitwan
Royal Chitwan National Park is one of the most important sub-tropical parks on the Indian subcontinent with good populations of the endangered Royal Bengal tiger, Greater One-horned rhinos, Gangetic dolphin (Platanista gangetica), Wild Asian elephant, Gaur, Golden Monitor lizard, Gharial crocodile and many more. The park is situated in the flat lowland region of southern Nepal, just close to the Indian International boundary.

For many years the Royal Chitwan Park was the Royal hunting grounds for the Kings and dignitaries of Nepal. In the late 19th and early to mid-20th centuries AD, the park become a favourite destination for big game safari hunters. The long-term hunting led to a drastic decrease in jungle populations in the Chitwan valley. The falling number of rhinos and tigers in the present park region, focused attention on the Chitwan region and in 1963 the southern two-thirds of the park were declared as a Rhino Sanctuary. With the sanctuary status came a moratorium on hunting and the relocation of 22,000 people from the Chitwan valley. Since 1963 wildlife populations and ecosystems have been rebounding in this area. In 1973 Chitwan became Nepal’s first National Park. The unique ecosystems prompted UNESCO to declare the park a World Heritage site in 1984.
