Established in the 1980s, Bardia lies in the Western Terai, a region of lowlands between the Himalayas and their foothills further south. The park is relatively hard to reach, especially compared to Chitwan, but the flight and road transfers are worth the effort.
Tigers and other wildlife sightings
The park is characterized by dense Sal forest, riverine forest and areas of open grasslands which ensure that Bardia remains a top location for tiger sightings in Nepal.
The range of wildlife is extensive, with deer and antelope species, including nilgai, wild elephants, rhinoceros and leopard.
