Parsa Wildlife Reserve
Parsa Wildlife Reserve comprises parts of Chitwan, Makawanpur, Parsa and Bara districts and is located to the east of Chitwan National Park. Since it lies in the lowland Terai, it has a sub-tropical monsoon climate that provides a perfect habitat to a large variety of wildlife species. Once a hunting ground for the ruling class people, this region is now Nepal’s largest wildlife reserve with an area of 499 sq. killometres.
The bioclimatic conditions of Parsa Wildlife Reserve makes it a suitable home for a diverse range of plant and animal species. It’s believed that a lot of the adult tigers from Chitwan National Park end up here. Major animals found here include the jungle giant’s elephants, tiger, sloth bear, and leopard. Other regular sightings of wildlife include Blue bull, Sambar, Chital, Hog deer, Barking deer, langur, Rhesus macaques, striped hyena, Jungle cat, and Palm civet. The tropical climate provides habitat to many species of snakes, including King cobra, common cobra, Krait, Rat snake and the Python.
There are nearly 300 species of birds in the reserve. Giant hornbill, peafowl, red jungle fowl, flycatchers and woodpeckers are the major of them. You also get to see the white breasted kingfisher, paradise flycatcher, large racquet-tailed drongo, Golden-backed woodpecker, and even the endangered Giant hornbill species. The abundance of flora and fauna makes Parsa Wildlife reserve a hub for eco-tourists and wildlife enthusiasts.
