Royal Bardia National Park is the largest untouched wilderness in the Terai region of Nepal. The park protects 968 sq km of sal forest (Shorea robusta) and whispering grassland, bordering the Geruwa and Karnali Rivers. The atmosphere is wonderfully tranquil and with the current slump in tourism, you may well have the whole place to be yourself. The park is home to more than 37 mammals including Royal Bengal Tigers, One-horned Rhinos and Asian Elephant but these animals are elusive and sightings are rare. Other mammals in the park include grey langurs, rhesus macaques (one of the species of Old World monkeys, leopards, civets, hyenas, sloth bears and barking, spotted, sambar and hog deer. Bardia also has more than 250 species of birds, including the endangered Bengal florican and sarus crane. It is one of the best place for nature lovers to hangout.
