Nepal is an incredible destination for wildlife experience. Wild life safari in the national parks of Nepal brings an opportunity to witness one horned rhinoceros, Bengal tiger, four different types of deer, wild boar, bear and many other wild animals.

Bardiya National Park in the western plains of Nepal is one of such national parks where wild life safari can be best experienced. Although Bardiya National Park is not as famous as Chitwan National Park because of its remote location, it provides an incredible opportunity of exploring the wild life inside the national park. It’ s about 600 kilometers of overland journey or one hour by flight followed by one and half hours of drive to reach Bardiya National Park. As the result of being less explored national park, the wildlife is still at peace thus we have more chance of coming across more wild animals. Recent development of infrastructures and good accommodations has made visit to Bardiya National Park much easier and accessible.

By visiting Bardia National Park for wild life safari, you will be exploring a less explored and less touristy area but will have an awesome wild life safari experience.

Boudhanath is considered as the biggest Buddhist Stupa in the world which lies in the middle of a beautiful square. The giant Buddhist shrine is a very important pilgrimage site for Tibetan Buddhist people. The stupais considered to have been built in 4th/5th centuries and carries some interesting stories behind its establishment. A stupa is basically a relic monument considered as a sacred shrine in Buddhism but there are several other types of stupas other than relic stupas. A stupa symbolizes the journey of a human being from material world to the world of enlightenment.

Pashupatinath is a Hindu Temple area where you can see a very unique cremation culture for the Hindu dead people. The temple which is considered as the most important Shiva temple in Nepal is open for Hindus only thus non-Hindu people have to stay outside the temple premises observing the Hindu death rites and rituals. We can encounter some Sadhus, the holy men, around who look so fascinating for photographs. The place is a rich spiritual and cultural source to have an insight on Nepali life and rituals.
