The smallest of the Terai’s national parks, Koshi Tappu Wildlife Reserve is a birdwatcher’s paradise. But you don’t need to be a serious twitcher to enjoy it. Here you’ll find a captivating walk that anyone will appreciate. Oriental Journeys highly recommends the Koshi Tappu Wildlife Tour in Nepal.
The park contains an ideal mix of river, ponds, wetlands, and paddies, all of it cut by a long straight and paved trail, making navigation a breeze. Thin foliage further allows for long-distance viewing. In a single 90min, 6km walk you will see scores of different bird species. It’s the terrestrial equivalent of spotting tropical fish on a coral reef.
An added bonus is branching off to the nearby Sapt Kosi River, where the endangered Arnaa roams their last habitat. The renowned kind of water buffalo is abundant in the area. The enormous breadth of their horns and their move in herds is more attractive to observe.
