UNESCO Heritage Sites / Chitwan National Park
At the foot of the Himalayas, Chitwan is one of the few undisturbed areas of the Terai region, which formerly extended over the foothills of India and Nepal, with its very rich flora and fauna. One of the last populations of single-horned Asiatic rhinoceros lives in the park, which is also among the last refuges for the Bengal tiger.
"Chitwan National Park" was added to UNICCO's World Heritage List in 1984. Chitwan is a rich natural area in the Terai, the subtropical southern part of Nepal. The rare Asiatic rhinoceros and Bengal Tiger inhabit the park. Besides these, there are many elephants, birds and butterflies.
