Nepal is more than just mountains. Some of the best jungle safaris can be experienced by anyone with a few days to spare.
We highly recommend washing Asian elephants in Chitwan National Park, or Bhote Kosi rafting combined with a full-moon party. Our itineraries range from one to 6 days out of Kathmandu.]
Royal Chitwan National Park
Nepal's first and most famous national park is situated in the Inner Terai lowlands of Chitwan. Covering an area of 932 sq. kilometers the park includes hilly areas of the Shivalik Range covered by deciduous trees. Parts of the park are floodplains of rivers Narayani, Rapti, and the Reu, covered by dense tall elephant grass, forests of silk cotton, acacia and Sisam trees. Royal Chitwan

Also found here is one of the four species of fresh-water dolphins.
