Bardia Tour Package Overview

Bardiya National Park, or Bardia National Park, is a special place in Nepal that was created in 1988 as Royal Bardia National Park. It's a very big and untouched natural area, covering 968 square kilometers (about 374 square miles). This park is the biggest and most pristine one in the Terai region of Nepal. It's located next to the Karnali River in the east and is split by the Babai River in the Bardiya District. The northern part is surrounded by the Siwalik Hills.

On the southern side, there's a highway called the Nepalgunj-Surkhet highway that serves as a border, but it's not great for the park. In the west, a river called the Geruwa, which is connected to the Karnali River, and in the southeast, the Babai River, naturally keep people from settling too close to the park.

When you combine Bardiya National Park with the nearby Banke National Park, you get a big protected area that covers 1,437 square kilometers (about 555 square miles). This combined area is called the Tiger Conservation Unit (TCU) Bardia-Banke, and it's huge, totaling 2,231 square kilometers (about 861 square miles). It's known for its grassy plains and moist forests.

This park is the largest in Nepal and is a home to about 53 different kinds of animals, like rhinoceroses, wild elephants, Bengal tigers, swamp deer, and Gangetic dolphins. There are also 23 types of reptiles and amphibians in the park, and the Karnali and Babai rivers mark its borders.

How to reach Bardia National Park from Kathmandu?

Thakurdwara is like the front door to Bardia National Park. To get there from Kathmandu, you have a few choices: you can take a bus, a jeep, or a plane. Most people pick the bus because it's the usual way to go. You just buy a bus ticket and hop on. If you start your bus journey today, you'll get to Bardia the next day.

Buses usually drive at night, and travelers usually take a bus to Mahendranagar or Bardia from Kathmandu. The bus ticket from Kathmandu to Mahendranagar is usually about NRs. 3000, but it might be a bit more if you want a fancier bus. You can also come back to Kathmandu from Bardia by bus, but it's a long and tiring ride, so it's a good idea to think about taking a plane for the return trip.

A quicker way to get there is by flying from Kathmandu to Nepalgunj, and then you can continue your journey to Bardia by jeep or bus. The airplane ticket from Kathmandu to Nepalgunj costs somewhere between NRs. 6000 and NRs. 11,000, depending on when you're traveling.
