Bardia National Park

Located in the Midwestern region of Nepal and east of the Karnali River this is largest undisturbed wilderness area in the Nepalese Terai. In 1988 its status was proclaimed to ensure the survival of the tiger and its prey species in order to conserve the representative ecosystem of the midwest Terai. The park sprawls over 1868 km˛ and sits at the foot of the Chure Hills (Siwalik range). The scenic Babai river flows through it and the Geruwa, a tributary of the Karnali, flows at the western edge.

Bardia National Park is situated 600 km from Kathmandu and the journey by air takes 1 hour and 10 minutes, followed by a short journey by road. It is one of the few places for the Swamp Deer or Barasingha. Even Blackbuck are found in reasonable numbers and can frequently be sighted at Baghaura Phanta.

Here is one of the best habitats for tiger and one of the finest places to view them in the wild. Other animals that inhabit the area are wild elephant, Gharial, Marsh Muggar crocodile, Gangetic dolphin, leopard, civets, Rhesus and Langur monkeys, Nilgai and varieties of deer. The Asian One-horned Rhino has been rehabilitated here from the Chitwan National Park.

Included in the rich selection of birdlife are the rare Lesser and Bengal Floricans, Silver-eared Mesia, herons (5 species), egrets (4 species) and many others. Authorities claim the reserve has an old bull elephant which is the largest of all surviving Asiatic Wild Elephant (Elephus maximus) and which has a height of almost four metres. Observation of wild animals is done on elephant back or in suitable vehicles and the Karnali River provides excellent fishing for Mahaseer. Other activities include rafting on the Karnali, Babai and nearby Bheri rivers.
