While Nepal is blessed with unparallel mountain range in the north, its southern region is covered with dense tropical jungles teeming with diverse wildlife and exotic birds. The preserves along the vast gangetic plains are the richest wildlife zone of Nepal, and one of the best natural areas in Asia. Once the private hunting grounds of Nepal’s ruling families and their guests, these areas were the sites of the royal hunts organized every few years, with hundred of elephants bearing the royalty of Europe and India.
