नमस्ते मेर साथीहरु!

Fish dropped another card for me! Yay! Thank you so much! And as soon as I got a date for you, I will let you know 😉
I have been to the Chitwan National park before, I remember the little cute village with a stunning sunset over the river there. The park is great, we went on an elephant ride to explore it. That was quite an experience!

Chitwan National Park is the first national park in Nepal. It was established in 1973 and granted the status of a World Heritage Site in 1984. It covers an area of 932 km(360 sq mi) and is located in the subtropical Inner Terai lowlands of south-central Nepal in the districts of Nawalparasi, Parsa, Chitwan and Makwanpur. In altitude it ranges from about 100 m (330 ft) in the river valleys to 815 m (2,674 ft) in the Churia Hills.

Did you know?

The name Chitwan is a composite of the Sanskrit words चित्त, “citta” meaning heart and वन, “vana” meaning jungle or forest.Thus, the meaning of Chitwan is Heart of the Jungle.
Very fitting.

I send love!
