Activities in Koshi Tappu Wildlife Reserve:

Morning / Evening Jungle Walk
The jungle along the belts of the Koshi River, part of the Koshi Tappu Wildlife Reserve is known for its richness in birds and other animal species. The river lagoons and wetlands provide excellent opportunities to sight bird life, deer, and herds of water buffaloes.

Soft Wildlife Rafting
Taking a raft down the Koshi River is another alternative for exploring the reserve. Here, you can see the water birds or animals off to their daily chores with wonderful sights like Kingfishers diving down the river looking for food, the marsh muggers, or the Gharial crocodiles sunbathing but of course out of reach. You might be lucky enough to spot the rare wild buffaloes. Down the end, at the barrage, Gagnetic river dolphins could be your best view of the day.
