Although to this day most Tharu people are Hindus, some vestiges of their tribal religion are still present.

  • 03Canoe & Safari We leave for a canoe ride. This is the best way to discover crocodiles on the edge of the river. It is also a relaxing way to observe the different species of birds, as well as the wildlife that come to the river banks to drink water. More than 450 species of exotic birds are present and make Chitwan an uncountable place for bird watching in Asia. Our experienced guides will take you to the best points in the park.

    Off the canoe we will venture, by jeep, into the tropical forest for a unique view of the Chitwan jungle that is home to at least 43 species of mammals and 45 species of amphibians and reptiles. Elephants and Indian rhinos are the largest species found in the park, but there are also other herbivores, gaur, sambar, the chital deer, porcupine deer, Sumatran sirau, quadricorn antelope and wild boar. These animals are hunted by three large predators, leopards, wild dogs, and tigers and by carrion eaters such as striped hyenas.

    We ask you to absolutely avoid elephant back rides, which represent real mistreatment of these extraordinary animals.

    Late afternoon, rather than visiting the Elephant Breeding Center, a center owned by the state where elephants, kept on the chain, are bred and trained to work, we will take you to the NGO Stand Up for Elephants. SU4E aims to improve the lives of captive elephants in Nepal and help their mahouts within the community in which they work.
