Photographer's Note

We arrived at Chitwan National Park via Rapti River and in a dugout canoe.

Chitwan National Park is at the foot of the Himalayas and is in the south of Nepal close to the border with India. It was the hunting reserve for the kings of Nepal until 1974 when it was declared a National Park and all hunting was banned. It is 932 square kilometres in size and is home to the world's largest population of the one-horned rhinoceros. In 1984 it was declared a World Heritage Site.
