Chitwan National Park came into being in the year 1968, nearly fifty-year now intending to provide natural space for animals to flourish accordingly when rampant destruction of the habitants was inconclusive to them.
This provides be played well and animal life which was once on the brink of dying out began to bounce back. So much so, that Chitwan National Park, has now become a haven for the royal Bengal Tiger, the one-horned rhino and many other species. This park happens to boast of having more than 68 species of mammals, 543 species of birds and a total of over 700 species of reptiles and others.

Entry into it is allowed by the government without the detrimental effect of eco-destruction which is commonly the case elsewhere. You happen to do the Chitwan Luxury Tour in precisely such an environment.
