Trip Overview

Dolphin seen in Nepal is also known as susu, or gangetic dolphins.These dolphin belong to one of only three species of freshwater dolphins in the world and, like their cousins in the Amazon and Indus, are highly endangered. A small, isolated population survives in the far west of Nepal, downstream of the Chisapani gorge in the Karnali River. Before the 2008 flood, dolphins used to cavort openly in the outflow of the Koshi Barrage, less than a dozen kilometres from Koshi Tappu Wildlife Reserve; since then spottings have been less frequent, though three stranded dolphins were rescued by the army and released back into the Koshi in early 2009.

Bardiya National Park is diversified with a variety of life which includes at least 150 species of reptiles and fish, over 400 species of birds and around 48 different mammals and therefore is an excellent destination to spot endangered wildlife species.It is the largest and most undisturbed national parks with largest wilderness area located in the Terai region of Nepal.
