Chitwan National Park is regarded as Nepal’s biggest third attraction. It is the first national park in Nepal. Formerly named as Royal Chitwan National park was established in 1973 and grabbed the status of World Heritage Site in 1984.Its forest and grasslands extended over more than 2600 km sq and was home to about 800 rhinos. It is the home of the more than 700 species of wildlife and a not yet fully surveyed number of butterfly, moth and insect species. At least 43 species of mammals and also kept the record of getting almost 543 species of bird. The variation of different species of birds and animals is the most interesting and exciting part for visiting Chitwan National Park.

    What makes this trip different ?

    Ace the Himalaya works closely with and is one of the main supporters of local NGO Sambhav Nepal. We support them in a number of ways.

    Donation
    Ace the Himalaya donates up to 10% of its annual revenue to Sambhav Nepal’s projects which cover regular maintenance of school buildings, constructing toilets, rebuilding earthquake-affected houses and schools, and so on.

    Sponsorship
    One of the major activities of Sambhav Nepal is the children sponsorship program, which is conducted with full collaboration with Ace the Himalaya and its sister organizations, Ace Holidays and Ace Xpeditions.

    Partnership (Volunteering Program)
    The Volunteering Program, devised by Ace the Himalaya and Sambhav Nepal, aims to mobilize teams of experts and interested individuals as an effective and economic measure in providing the human capital for education, health and community development in the villages of northern Gorkha district, western Nepal.

    After the Earthquake of April 25, 2015, the Volunteering Program’s focus has been mobilizing the volunteers in various school and house rebuilding projects in the hard-hit Gorkha district.
