Wildlife at Shuklaphanta National Park

A short trip to Shuklaphanta National Park, Nepal amid lockdown

2020 March 19 Thursday, we got the news that IOE semester exams got postponed. Also, the rumor about nationwide lockdown in the coming days was there. The turmoil was increasing in India at a rapid rate and we needed to be concerned too. So I thought its a high time to move to my hometown.

It had been a month I reached home. To get over the dreary days, my brother, I, and his friend planned a short trip to Shuklaphanta National Park. The park is circa 3km far from my home. As I always have the veneration towards nature, I was excited to be there. My love for photography abetted me to hold the camera during the trip. The wild beauty and natural environment beguiled us and we kept capturing all of them. Some of the best shots taken are presented in this blog.

One-horned Rhino
The greater one-horned rhinoceros is commonly found only in South Asia and South East Asia. Historically, the rhinos were distributed in the floodplain and forest tracts in Brahmaputra, Ganges and Indus river valley. Today, however, no more than 2,000 remain in the wild, with only two populations containing more than 100 rhinos: Kaziranga National Park in Assam, India (1,200) and Chitwan National Park (CNP), Nepal (600). Despite joint efforts between Bhutan and India, the survival of a small population of rhinos living along the Indo-Bhutan border in Manas still remains doubtful (Jnawali et.at, 2000).
