It is one of the largest and least explored National Parks in Nepal. It is located in the remote Far Western Terai in Nepal. This National Park is the largest habitat of Royal Bengal Tigers in Nepal and is only one National Park with fresh water Dolphins. You stand a better chance of seeing a tiger here than anywhere else in Nepal. It's a stunning place that seems a very long way from the 21st century -watching the sunrise over the forest from the back of an elephant. It is believed that the largest male elephant in Asia is in this park. This place is supposed to be safe heaven for royal Bengal Tiger, leopards, jungle cats, mongooses, sloth bears, blue cow antelopes, langurs, spotted hog, samber deer, masheer fish, gharial and mugger crocodiles, Gangetic dolphin etc. Same way, more than 30 different type of mammals and 250 species of birds are believed to be here.

 

Tharu Style Resort

Known as 'Tharu', the indigenous people of lowland Nepal live in close harmony with nature. Depending on the forest for building materials and medicines, and on the rivers for fish, these farmer/ fishermen still live as they have for generations. 

 

In keeping with these rural surroundings, hotels in Bardia, with accommodation ranging from standard to deluxe, are built in traditional clay and timber style with grass roofs and Tharu decoration. 

With restaurants offering set buffet and la carte meals, hotels provide the perfect relaxed setting from which to explore the pristine conservation area that is Royal Bardia National Park. 

Electricity has not yet reached Bardia - kerosene lamps are used for lighting and gas for cooking. Natural solar energy heats the water except in the cool months of January and February when we provide refuse generated hot water and bed time hot water bottles to keep you snug!
