In a bid to drum up awareness and promote Shuklaphanta National Park, the far western region just finished hosting the Shuklaphanta Tourism Fair 2017 from March 17 to 19. The three-day long tourism fair aimed at promoting Shuklaphanta National Park as well as to celebrate the change of status from Shuklaphanta Wildlife Reserve to Shuklaphanta National Park. The national park covers 118 square miles with a range of animals from the endangered Bengal tiger, leopards, sloths, different variety of deers, wild elephants to rhinos. The grassland of Shuklaphanta National Park is said to be unlike other national parks located in Nepal. Check out the photos and video below and why not try out Shuklaphanta next time instead of Chitwan 🙂
