    • The Royal Bardia National Park is also known as Karnali National Park as it is located in the east of Karnali river which flows in Far West Nepal. It is an undisturbed wilderness in the Terai(plain) section of Nepal. The national park was the hunting reserve during the Shah dynasty. The Eco-system and flora and fauna of the place will naturally captivate your attention. Like in Chitwan it has Sal, Savannah and riverine forest and grassland. This park was created by resettling the people to another area. Natural vegetation in this forest is now providing sanctuary for wildlife.

      There are around 600, plant species, 50 over mammals, 500 over birds, 50 over amphibians and reptiles are found around the park. It is one of the few remaining habitats of the Royal Bengal tiger and great one-horned rhinoceros. A small herd of wild elephants are occasionally seen. There are scientific research projects funded by WWF (World Wild Life Fund) and international organizations to understand ecology, behaviour and preserve species like rhino, tiger and deer. There is a breeding centre for nearly extinct Gharials - crocodiles. Tharus are an inhabitant of this place and the culture adds a distinct touch to the Bardia experience in a colourful way.

      In the morning we take you to a walking tour of Kathmandu Durbar square. We walk through Asan, Hanuman Dhoka, temple of living Goddess, and Kastha Mandap. You go through medieval wonders that have given Kathmandu much of its mystery and atmosphere. The city itself is a labyrinth of streets and markets, crowded with exotic products and a bewildering mix of people. One can see Tibetan women in their stripped aprons, traders from India and Sadhus-Hindu holy men, who are perhaps on pilgrimage to one of the countless shrines and temples spread in the valley. As you wander, your tour guide will explain the intricacies of Nepal’s distinct blend of Hinduism and Buddhism.

      In the afternoon we visit Swayabhunath. It is one of the secret Buddhist stupa located on a hill top. Legend has it that the Goddess Manjushri found a shrine here after she drained the water from the valley. Today it is regarded as one of the most important Buddhist temples. The temple is located on a hill just 2 km from the city center. It has a vantage point for a panoramic view over the surrounding city and countryside. With its tremendous big white stupa it is a memorable sight to capture.

      You will then be guided to Boudhanath, an important place for Tibetan pilgrims and Buddhist monks. It is one of the biggest Buddhist stupa in the world and the center of Buddhism. It was listed in the UNESCO Heritage Monument in 1979.
