Located in South Central Nepal right next to its more famous cousin Chitwan, Parsa Wildlife Reserve is a National Wildlife Park in its own right. Although in the past, the Park has not been set up for tourists, that is now changing and although there aren’t any actual lodges in the Park, there is a small guesthouse with 4 rooms at the Park HQ. Access is easy and it is more than possible to visit the Park during normal viewing months. If you are interested in visiting Parsa you would normally stay outside about an hours drive away in either Hetuada or Birgunj.
The reserve supports a good population of wild elephant, tiger, leopard, sloth bear, gaur, blue bull and wild dog. It’s believed that a lot of the adult tigers from Chitwan end up here (probably to get away from the tourists!). Other common animals spotted include various deer – sambar, chital, hog and barking deer as well as Langur monkeys, striped hyenas, ratels, palm civets and jungle cats. Many species of snakes are found in the reserve due to the tropical climate, including king cobra, common cobra, krait, rat snake and the python. There are about 300 species of birds found in the reserve - Some of the common ones include giant hornbill, peafowl, red jungle fowl, flycatchers and woodpeckers.
