Elephants & ethical tourism !

Recently torture involved in training elephants, driving them and workload have been an issue. Elephants are most eco friendly and effective means to check poaching and patrol the dense jungle. They are not recently captured from the wild but are sheltered now after they are not used anymore for wars, hunting and logging. Tourism is new kind of living for these elephants with which their counterpart in wild and many other endangered species are protected from poaching. So we request you to visit Chitwan National Park but preach for better treatment of elephants. Customize your safari activities with Jeep safari instead and book certain location and lodges and use government elephants which enjoys more freedom.

Chitwan Tour Review

This is the second time we have used iTour Nepal. Mr Rabindra organised our entire trip. Airport transfers, hotel, flights, guides and Chitwan resort. The highlight of the trip was a day's guided bird watching in the Chitwan National Park. Our guide Shivas was knowledgeable - tiger, elephant and rhino tracks and scat - and over 60 species of birds. Mr Rabindra supports sustainable tourism and will take you to places and experiences you will never see otherwise. Authentic Tharu cultural experience in the local village, a resort on the edge of the forest with deer grazing outside our window in the morning, jackals calling as we cooked over the fire, a night sky to die for. I have no hesitation to recommend iTour Nepal.
