Some popular and recommended destinations nearby are:
Bis Hazari Tal
A short walk or bike ride through our village amidst forested roads brings you to the western gate entry of Chitwan National Park and a further 2 km along to Bishazari Tal. Contrary to popular belief Bishazari Tal, or 20000 Lakes, is not thousands of lakes but rather 1 large Oxbow lake system. A combination of dense forests and wetlands has made this a perfect sanctuary for migrating and local birds as well as several rare and critically endangered species. It is considered to be one of Nepal’s premiere bird watching destinations.
This temple to the Goddess Sita lies on the banks of the Rapti River about 5 km away. It is located within Chitwan National Park grounds and abundant with wildlife. A 30 minute bicycle ride there takes you through several indigenous villages where you can experience a way of life that hasn’t changed for many years. Surrounding the temple are Sal forests and you may spot some rhinos, several kinds of deer and many birds.
Chitwan National Park
Chitwan National Park is a Unesco World Nature Site, one of the last remaining undisturbed areas in Asia, and only a short drive away from LTK. Its very rich flora and fauna is today home to the endangered One-Horned Rhino, Bengal Tiger, Asian Leopard, Sloth Bear, Gharial Crocodile, and Ganges Dolphin. These plus many species of cats, deer, and monkeys prove popular for visitors who nowadays take back great nature photographs instead of hunting trophies.
Some of the activities you can do here are:
Dugout Canoe Ride
Floating downstream on the Rapti River in a hand-made dugout canoe is particularily relaxing in this slow moving river. Apart from taking in the scenery, you will have an opportunity to view two types of crocodiles, the Marsh Mugger and the endangered Gharial, basking in the sun. Bright colored kingfishers swooping from trees and many other varieties of birds abound. Our favorite sight is that of a caravan of elephants crossing the river with their trunks held high.
An elephant back ride is one of the safest ways to enter the jungle and see the wild life. It is an exciting never to be forgotten experience.
