Sita’s Chitwan

Not Just a Walk in Nepal’s First National Park

Select Preferred Format

Welcome to Chitwan National Park!

As big as 1,78,000 football fields, Nepal’s first protected national park is home to over 550 species of birds; awe-inspiring animals, such as greater one-horned rhinoceroses, Bengal tigers, clouded leopards; and a confident, brave girl called Sita.

Sita dreams of being a nature guide like her baba. With a spring in her step and a group of eager tourists, she unravels the secrets of the forest. But when she wanders astray and comes face to face with a mamma rhino, will this eight-year-old be able to listen to the stillness of the jungle?

Join this young Nepali as she takes you on a tour of the magnificent UNESCO World Heritage Site.

THERE’S MORE!
1. An exclusive interview with Doma Paudel, the first female nature guide in Nepal
2. In-depth information on Chitwan’s flora and fauna
