We can explore the jungle of Chitwan by elephant back riding or 4WD Jeep Safari or Canoeing or we can also arrange for nature walk. Most of our guests prefer elephant back riding as it allows you with advantage of height so that you can get wildlife views in far distance while you can also pass close to the rhinoceros from the safe height.
