Chitwan Jungle Safari offers a wilderness of rich ecosystem that includes mammals, birds, reptiles, and water animals of numerous kinds. It is one of the most spectacular wildlife activities in Nepal. Chitwan National Park is situated in the subtropical inner Terai of south-central Nepal of Chitwan district. It is the first National Park in Nepal and was granted the UNESCO Natural world heritage site in 1984 AD. It covers an area of 932km2 and altitude ranges from 100 to 815m. The Name “Chitwan” means the heart of the jungle and inhabitant of endangered royal Bengal Tiger, over 600 one-horned Rhinos, sloth bear, monkeys, wild boar, leopards, jungle cats, various types of bear, and over 400 species of colorful birds.
The main highlights of this tour are the riverside stay, canoeing in the Rapti river watching the gharial bask on the river bank, bird watching, sunset view tour, visiting the Tharu village, an indigenous tribe of the Terai. And most importantly a Jeep safari in an open-roofed jeep to the deepest part of the Chitwan National Park is perhaps the best way to experience and enjoy the close-up view of wildlife during the trip.

My Name is EDhan from California, America. I am a retired management consultant. Basically, this visit to Nepal exceeded my expectations. We came here through Tibet and Bhutan. Here in Nepal, I like the neighbourhood and friendly people. My wife every day used to go for morning walk and used to tell me the story about the local people, whatever she sees every day. Especially, the guide was most knowledgeable and made it possible and get a sense of not only historical and religious value of some of the places but also some of the other places how the people live over there day to day.
The company was able to manage all the services smoothly and made the memorable trip in Kathmandu. Do not be afraid of Earthquake; the government has done very good job, lots of cleaning up and reconstructions are going on. There are many places to go without facing any problems. Feel free to make a trip to Nepal nothing to afraid of and you will feel the completely different and unique. Thanks to Sixth Sixth and an entire team making an incredible trip in Nepal and I will come back next time.

Hi, My Name is Margo Boston, America. We were planning the trip to visit Nepal Bhutan and Tibet through our local agency. In the beginning, we asked so many questions about safety, especially after the earthquake but we realised that after visiting Nepal it is completely safe & worthful to visit.
We are very glad to see the beautiful country. Everything was perfect and great to see the Hinduism and Buddhism and combinations of religious and cultural aspects in the tiny little city. The trip plan, all the staff activity including cultural show was great.
