NAGARKOT TO CHITWAN NATIONAL PARK

After a 7 hour crazy and dangerous car journey, we have now reached Chitwan National Park, south west of Kathmandu. This was once a hunting ground for royalty and nobility, but in 1973, they abolished the hunting of the one horned Rhino and Bengal Tigers and Chitwan is now a breeding ground for these species and several others. Having arrived late, we have only managed to track down one baby Rhino, watched the sunset and tasted the local beer. Dinner was bitterly disappointing as they had prepared roast chicken and chips and were surprised to hear that we preferred Nepali food. Seems as though Nepalese food is in fact a rarity here!
