Parsa Wildlife Reserve comprises parts of the Chitwan, Makawanpur, Parsa and Bara districts. It is located to the east of Chitwan National Park. Since it lies in the lowland Terai, it has a sub-tropical monsoon climate. Moreover, It provides a perfect habitat for 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 4,99 sq. kilometers.
The bi-climatic conditions of Parsa Wildlife Reserve make it suitable for vegetation and animal species. It’s believed that a lot of the adult tigers from Chitwan National Park end up here.

Other regular sightings of wildlife include Blue bull, Sambar, Chital, Hog deer, Barking deer, langur, Rhesus macaques, striped hyenas, Jungle cats, and Palm civets.
