Wildlife of Nepal
In the ‘other Nepal’, down in the humid Terai jungles, tourists can enjoy the reclusive sights of wildlife through travelling. The dense, wooly forests of the country form the formidable base to explore one of the best Asian wildlife spots through elephant safaris. Without paying the visit to the wildlife, the trip to Nepal is considered incomplete. Such is the importance of wildlife safaris in Nepal that it has now become one of the must visit attractions of this Himalayan country.
