Chitwan Jungle Safari

Chitwan Jungle Safari means traveling inside the national park. Royal Chitwan National Park, and Royal Bardia National Park along with 11 other national parks in Nepal are rich in different kinds of flora and wildlife, birds, such as the rare great one-horned rhinoceros, several species of deer, bear, leopard, dolphin, crocodile, birds, tiger, etc., living in this park in their natural habitat. The parks are very popular for dugout canoeing, nature walk, bird watching, jungle excursion, village visits of local tribes called Tharu, etc.

Our program during your stay at National Parks has been designed in such a way as to make your stay enjoyable but exciting at the same time. However, viewing wildlife at its best requires early morning and late afternoon excursions which is a matter beyond our control, and guests are advised to comply with the schedule for their own advantage. We also arrange longer trips who wish to be there for 3 days/4 and nights or more. One who visits Nepal should once do a Chitwan Jungle Safari.

Lumbini Circuit

Located some 27 km. west of Lumbini lies the ruins of historic town of ‘Kapilvastu’. Kapilvastu, also known as modern Piprahwa in the Lumbini Zone of Nepal, is one of the most holy Buddhist centres globally. Kapilavastu was the capital of the Shakya kingdom, and Buddha was born to king Shuddhodhana of this clan. The capital city of the Shakya clan, and one of the earliest Republics in the world, Kapilvastu witnessed the childhood and early family life of the Buddha in the royal palace. It was at Kapilvastu, the prince saw sorrow, pain, disease and death, the four sights which disturbed Him and He abandoned His life in search of the reality of life, and became the Buddha. Twelve years later after He attained enlightenment, the son of the city came back to His home, but not as a prince but rather as the Buddha, who preached His sermons over here.

Believed to be the capital of Shakya republic where the Lord lived and enjoyed his life until his thirteeth year, there are ruins and mounds of old stupas and monasteries made of kiln-burnt bricks and clay-mortar. In fact, the city of Kapilvastu are in such a grand scale that it could be easily be visualised as a seat of high culture. Kapilvastu is located in the southern Nepal, bordering India. Lumbini, the birth place of Siddharth Gautama, is located in Kapilavastu district of Nepal. Gautam Buddha spent his first twenty-nine years of life in this region.

Excavations carried out by the Archaeological survey of India relate Kapil Vastu to the Kushan period. The excavations include a stupa, of an ancient monastery named Devaputra, and two mounds, regarded as the ruins of King Suddhodhana’s palace. Other major attractions of Kapilvastu include stupas built by Ashoka and the Gupta Kings, relics of Lord Buddha, etc. Excavations by archaeological survey of India have revealed the relation of this place to the Kushan period. Two mounds have also been excavated at only a little distance (1.5 km) from this village which, is considered to be the ruins of King Suddhodhana’s palace.
