Chitwan, or not?

Jump to last reply

My RTW planning has now reached Nepal (although I'm still working on hotels for Korea and Taiwan), and the next decision is whether to include Chitwan. I'm really going to Nepal for mountains and temples, I'm not that into animals (an African safari is good ways down my list) and it's a bit out of the way for the itinerary I'm considering. I've also read that the number of animals is down thanks to flooding in 2002 and poaching during the insurgency, and that the chances of seeing leopards, never mind a tiger, are close to zero..

While I did enjoy the bird park at Bharatpur a lot more than I expected, the birds need to be reasonably big for me to spot them. I've already ridden an elephant, so that's not necessarily a draw, either. Anyone been to Chitwan lately who thought it was really worthwhile? How about in comparison to national parks in south India?
