Brief introduction to Chitwan city:
Formerly, the Chitwan Valley was well known for big game
hunting and until 1950 was exclusively managed as a hunting reserve for the Rana
Prime Ministers and their guests. In 1963, the area south of the Rapti River was
demarcated as a rhinoceros sanctuary. In 1970, His late Majesty King Mahendra
approved, in principle, the creation of
Royal Chitwan National Park.
Some of the major things to do in Chitwan:
An elephant ride through the park gives you the opportunity to sight the
denizens from close quarters, while a boat ride on the river through the jungles
can be an exciting affair and a good option to move deep inside.
