Out in the Wild

Bardia National Park is a protected area located in Nepal’s western plain land, east of the Karnali River, covering an area of 968 sq. km which was established in 1988 as Royal Bardia National Park.  It is the largest and one of the most undisturbed protected wilderness park in the Terai, home to many endangered species of wild animals including Royal Bengal Tiger, Wild Elephant, Blackbuck, Rhinoceros, Crocodile, Swamp Deer, and Gangetic Dolphin, adjoining the eastern bank of the Karnali River in the Bardiya District.

Out in the Wild is our other wildlife otherworldly experience in Nepal. Accordingly, to the Lonely Planet, Bardia National Park is the largest national park in the Terai Region of Nepal which is a well-known sanctuary among the Nepalese; the park isn't as frequented as the Chitwan National Park. Perhaps, this is why its beauty and wilderness is unspoiled by the commercials developments that have engulfed other such destinations. One can raft through the park for hours on end and not encounter another person. 

In the western part of Nepal, Bardia is one of the best wildlife safari tour spots in Nepal especially those who want to encounter with Royal Bengal tiger and this is the only one place for tiger safari in Nepal. This park is famous for elephant back safari and jungle drive tour as well. During the jungle safari tour on elephant back, you will come across small herds of wild elephants and can be seen rhinoceros, tiger, and other animals. The main existing wild animals in Bardia National Park are-30 different mammals, more than 250 species of birds, varieties of reptiles and aquatic animals. The enchanting birds found here are Bengal Florican, Lesser Florican, Silver-eared Mesia, and Sarus Crane. The national park is full of open grasslands and shrubs making it an ideal place for game-viewing adventure for the tourist. So, Highway to Himalayas has brought an exclusive two – three tour packages for your adventure start.

It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).
