Chitwan National Park: Dug-Out Canoe Through the Jungle

We visited in Nepal in 2014, one year before the Kathmandu earthquake. During our time there, our main goal was to get the rabies vaccination series which was available for about 1/10th of the cost that we’d pay in the U.S. Unfortunately, though the rabies vaccines made us sick. When we visited Chitwan National Park, we’d just had the last of three shots in the series. Rather than have a terrible time, we opted instead to sleep in on the day of our dug-out canoe trip down the Narayani River so we didn’t see any tigers or rhinoceros, which are typically most viewable in the early hours of the morning. Still, it was amazing to ride along the river into the jungle. We see birds and other wildlife. The next year, we saw a rhinoceros in the wild while on safari in South Africa, so it all worked out.
