We’re happy to be able to offer you canyoning through our sister company, Borderlands ecoadventure resort, who were the pioneers of canyoning in Asia, introducing the sport to Nepal in 1997.
Chitwan National Park stands today as a successful testimony of nature conservation in South Asia. This is the first national park of Nepal, established in 1973 to preserve a unique eco-system significantly valuable to the whole world. The park, covering the protected area of 932 sq km, is situated in subtropical inner Terai lowlands of the south central part of Nepal. The park gained much wider recognition in the world when UNESCO included the area on the list of World Heritage Sites in
1984. Amongst the abundant wildlife, the one-horned rhinoceros, gaur (wild oxen), marsh mugger crocodiles (also known as gharial and gavial), sloth bear, languor, chital and the majestic bengal tigers are what one would be able to view during their visit to this pristine land.
It should also be emphasized that only a very small part of the national park is used for tourism. A great majority of the land, particularly in the hills, remains unvisited and therefore undisturbed. This is ideal for wildlife and also assists in preserving an element of mystery for humans as large areas are still unexplored and our knowledge of what birds and animals the park contains is by no means finalized. Thus, there is always the possibility of making new discoveries!
Rather than traveling to Chitwan by bus, might we suggest a far more exciting way to go? You can raft down the Trishuli River or Seti River if traveling from either Kathmandu or Pokhara. The bit of added cost would very definitely be worth its value, as you experience numerous rapids and see a variety of village life, flora and fauna along the banks. Our naturalist will meet you upon arrival and take you to the park.
Alternatively, if you are looking for the fastest way to travel you can opt for a flight, where our naturalist will meet you upon arrival and take you to the park.
