Thumbnails - Chitwan National Park, 2010

After the Habitat 2010 Everest Build the Canadian team took a bus Chitwan National Park for a few days. We stayed at the Hotel Parkland in Sauraha which is a town just outside of Chitwan National Park. We did a number of tours including an elephant ride through Baghmara Community Forest which is a buffer zone to the park, a Tharu cultural village and an elephant breeding center. It was a nice change of pace after two weeks of hard work.

Chitwan National Park is a world heritage site in south central Nepal and is more than 900 square km in size. Wildlife include the Bengal Tiger, leopards, Indian Rhino, elephants, crocodiles, monkeys, deer and many types of birds.
