Sunrise on the Rapti river, Chitwan, Nepal 2007
o the Gangetic flat lands of the Terai that stretches through out the southern part of Nepal provides a wholly different experience to the commonly adored mountains. Chitwan has over 50 species of mammals, 400 species of birds, and 65 types of butterflies in its hardwood Sal forests, riverine vegetation, and "elephant grass" savannah. The most famous wildlife in Chitwan is perhaps the single-horned Asian rhinoceros and the Bengal tigers whose numbers are sadly in decline due to poaching.
