Bardia National Park, situated in the mid-far Western region, is the largest and most unspoiled wilderness area in the Terai, covering an area of 968 sq. km. The park, a sub-tropical jungle, is thickly forested by Sal trees and carpeted with grass, savannah, and riverine vegetation. The north is bordered by the Churia hill range, the west by the Karnali river, while the Babai river cuts its course almost through the middle of the park. On the southern fringe of the park are the villages of the unique and indigenous Tharu people of Western Nepal. Considered one of the most picturesque national parks in Asia, it teems with rich and diverse flora and fauna.

The park is home to more than 30 different mammals, including the langur and rhesus monkeys, civets, hyenas, wild dogs, sloth bears, otters, blue bulls, deer, and wild boars. It is a regenerated habitat for endangered animals like the tiger, rhinoceros, wild elephant (the park harbors the biggest wild tusker in Asia), and black buck, Gharial, and marsh mugger crocodiles the great game fish-masher, and the Gangetic dolphin cavort in the river waters.

The unique birds which number over 350 species include cormorants, egrets, storks, geese, jungle fowls, kingfishers, and endangered species such as the Bengal florican, Silver-eared Mesia, and Saurus crane thus making the park truly a bird watchers paradise. Within the park are several open grasslands (plants) where game viewing is excellent. Many of the forest tracks throughout the park also offer excellent game viewing. And when you can take in the sights and sounds of the wild without necessarily having to give up on your creature comforts, what more could you ask for…?

As you fly towards the International Terminal of Tribhuvan International Airport on a clear sunny day, you can see the breathtaking views of snow-capped mountain peaks spread in distance. Once you land, a representative from Himalayan Scenery Treks will escort you to your hotel. The day is complete leisure. You can either choose to rest in your hotel room and remove jet lag or take a short walk around the ancient valley of Kathmandu.

Today we will be driving to Bardia. We will be able to see terrace farmlands, local lifestyles, and small villages along the way.

Once we reach Bardia we will notice the climate being hot compared to Kathmandu. You will notice people wearing light clothes and you will notice different vehicles for traveling around here. People living here are mostly Tharus, but you will notice other people with various traditions and cultures.

We will then check in to our hotel and change our clothes. Then, we will go out for a tour around the local Tharu villages and as well visit the Elephant Breeding Center.

After waking up early we will have our breakfast in the hotel. Then we will pack our stuff such as selfie sticks, a camera, and extra money. The extra money will be helpful to buy something new for yourself and to experience something new. We will then drive to Bardia National Park where we will be taking a tour of the Jungle (Jungle Safari). Here you will be able to notice Barking Deer, Deer, Bear, Blue Cow, Rhinos, and Bengal Tiger.

Today we will be walking to the Karnali river which is famous for freshwater Dolphins. This is the only river in Nepal where you can see Dolphins. After reaching there we will watch dolphins for some time and then we will start another activity for the day i.e. Elephant Safari. We will ride an Elephant and take a tour around the region and jungle.  

Today we will be trekking to the Karnali river where you will be rafting. Once we reach the Karnali river we will contact the rafting service. We will then get ready for the rafting. Once we finish rafting we will take a short tour and enjoy nature to the fullest. We will hike along the river and explore the place. We will notice elephants, dolphins, and other wild animals as well. 

The whopping 900 species (10% of the world's total bird species, more than Europe and North America combined) make Nepal a paradise for birding. Today we will take a short tour and in meantime, we will go bird watching. The concentration of birds is high despite the small territory because there are different kinds of dwelling places for birds here such as wetlands, lakes, tropical and subtropical forests, and coniferous and Himalayan valleys. You will be able to see different species of rare and common birds. While all those birds fly in the sky it looks colorful and delightful. After watching migrated birds, we will return to our hotel and then drive back to Kathmandu.
