An alpha predator, lethal prey killer, cunning, and sacred animal, Tiger is one of the widely reckoned animals on the planet. Everyone would love to see how these big cats roam into the woods.

Sadly, there are few places where you can view these fantastic animals now; they are on the verge of extinction. Yet, there are some lands where you have good chances of viewing one of them. Nepal, the custodian of the Himalayas, is one of them.

With over 235 tigers, Nepal is among the favorable homes to the tigers, more especially the Bengal Tigers. Thanks to the efforts of all the stakeholders, Nepal has managed to double the number of Tigers compared to 2009’s tiger count. For a small country like Nepal, those numbers are pretty impressive. Thus, you can know why Nepal is the top nation to come across the deadliest predator. You have good odds of viewing one of the cats here.

There are two prime destinations for Nepal Tiger Tours: Chitwan National Park and Bardia National Park. Besides those two sites, Suklaphanta National Park and Banke National Park, Parsa National Park are other tigers’ homes in Nepal. However, the ultimate go-to sites for tiger-seeing tours in Nepal are the former ones.

Let’s get to learn more about tiger tours in Chitwan National Park and Bardia National Park.
