Which is the best time to visit Chitwan National Park?

Chitwan National Park is open throughout the year and can be visited at any time of the year. But the travelers consider the Spring and Autumn seasons to be the best time of the year to visit Chitwan National Park. Let’s see why it is so.

Summer

The summer season occurs from June to August. During this time of the year, the temperature spikes to over 40 degrees Celsius, making it difficult for travelers to even stand in the Terai region. Terai region, being the hottest region in Nepal, it is near to impossible to enjoy a tour of Chitwan National Park under a scorching sun.

The dryness of the river does not excite you for canoeing in Summer. Wild animals do not easily come out in the scorching sun. So the summer season is not considered the best time to visit Chitwan National Park.

Winter

The winter occurs from December to February. During this time of the year, the temperature drops down drastically, making the weather too chilly. The weather is foggy the entire time, so the surrounding is not clearly visible. It is difficult to behold the beauty of Chitwan National Park during the winter season. You will have to carry a bunch of extra warm clothes to avoid cold.

Monsoon

Monsoon is not much of an appreciated time of the year for Chitwan National Park due to the rainfall. Monsoon occurs from September to November. During this time of the year, heavy rain is anticipated. It can be quite risky to enter the Sauraha jungle during rainfall.

Hovering around the jungle during rain is also not fun as the soil becomes muddy and slippery. There is a high possibility of a leech attack. You would have to carry a raincoat and umbrella all the time. You would be required to carry gears suitable during rainfall.

Spring

Spring is the best time of the year to visit Chitwan National Park. Spring season occurs from March to May. During this time of the year, the weather is neither too hot nor too cold. The weather is clear, and the forest is green and dense. It is the time when the wild animals can be seen hovering around the forest.
You also get to see distinct flora and fauna and the beauty of the river to add up. Travelers choose this time of the year to visit Chitwan National Park, so the crowd slightly increases during spring than during other seasons. You do not have to carry any extra warm clothes.
