Koshi Tappu Wildlife Reserve is a bird-watcher's paradise situated on the flood plains of the Sapti Koshi River in eastern Nepal. Established in 1976, the park extends over an area of 175 km², with a 24 km long section along the river. The Sapta Koshi River provides life to the reserve, and its existence gives this area tremendous charm, serenity, and beauty. The reserve is home to rare animals, including the Gangetic dolphin, the Gharial, and otters.
The park's southern side has a barrage that created a water reservoir where thousands of migrating waders and wildfowl take a rest, and many small marshlands, pools, and grasslands are formed, providing a haven for birds and birdwatchers. The vegetation near the banks holds many passerines, and large agricultural fields that lie next to the reserve make fine habitat for many birds.
Apart from birds, wild buffaloes are a rare species found only in this reserve, along with other mammals such as the hog deer, wild boar, spotted deer, and small animals like mongoose. A different culture lies in the villages near the reserve, where people of many ethnic backgrounds live in harmony. The housing structure is very different from any other villages in Nepal, with wooden attic houses on the second level with sturdy wooden poles forming their base.
Visiting Koshi Tappu Wildlife Reserve guarantees peace and tranquility, where tourists can enjoy the river-side sand beach, take a boating trip in the river, and relax on the tiny seasonal beaches on the river. The park's flora and fauna are the main attraction, but there is more pleasure to be had at this awesome place. The park is a haven for nature enthusiasts and experts, and rare birds like ibis, storks, ducks, and partridges are found in unbelievable numbers. For true bird enthusiasts, at least 100 birds a day will definitely be sighted, making Koshi Tappu Wildlife Reserve a bird watcher's paradise.
