Established in 1973, Chitwan National Park (a UNESCO world heritage site) which is located in the lowlands of south- central Nepal is rated as the best park in Asia and by far the most popular wildlife sanctuary in the country. It also bears significant historical importance. The park preserves a unique ecosystem significantly valuable to the whole world. This 932 sq. km area of low, heavily forested hills is a great place to relax and experience something different in the tranquility.
