Koshi Tappu Wildlife Reserve
The Koshi Tappu Wildlife Reserve is Nepal’s only designated wildlife reserve. It is home to over 485 species of colorful birdlife and 31 different mammals and other animals, including some rare creatures. Flocks of migratory birds, some from Siberia and Tibet, fly to the reserve during the winter and spring from October to March.
The Koshi Tappu Wildlife Reserve, a rectangle shaped reserve, stands 175 kilometers (68 square miles.) It offers abundant flora and fauna. The Koshi Tappu Wildlife Reserve is a freshwater, natural river ecosystem. The Reserve lies in the alluvial flood plains of a snow-fed perennial river, called the Saptakoshi River, a tributary of the sacred Ganges. The Reserve has been protected since 1976 and was designated as a Ramsar site in December 1987. Located less than 100 metres above sea level and set close to Nepal’s southern border with India, it is a less frequented location offering a true escape from the crowds.
This vast expanse of open water and its’ surrounding environment offers an outstanding wetland which has created one of the best and finest bird watching sanctuaries in Asia.
The best ways to explore the reserve is to take a gentle river raft or go on hikes exploring local villages.

5 Short Treks in Nepal
Short treks, when planned the right way, can be quite rewarding especially during the perfect trekking seasons. During peak spring season, one can observe wild flowers, which carpet the meadows, where clear streams run down from forested slopes.
During the fall, the skies are clearer and one can walk on high hills against a backdrop of the stunning Himalayan peaks, most of which are tall 8000 metre peaks in the Himalayas.

Bhutan Snowman Trek
This is the world that Kevin Grange wrote about in Beneath Blossom Rain: Discovering Bhutan on the toughest trek in the world. His acclaimed book is a reminder that a world exists that reminds us to “Live it all”. The Snowman trek is a reminder of why we seek nature out. This trek is difficult but it’s about losing yourself in the wilderness and finding ultimate bliss as nature draws you in and lets you out each minute. As you cross many high mountain passes, you look out to an entire mountain range that seem scattered, floating above the clouds like islands of snow. When you reach isolated hills, you can see the meadows below in a dreamlike series of flashes as the sun rays play across it.
When you cross Nyile La, the mountain pass of the Gods, you can see everything on earth dwarfed and the mountains standing on your shoulders and the only feeling you can muster up is humility! When you reach Shomuthang, you can see pastures uninhabited, unveiling each beautiful scenery piece by piece, allowing you time to process your overwhelming sensations. When you reach Laya village, you will have seen a world that is only about nature, where no one exists except beauty in its most pristine form. This trek is long and may not be for everyone. But it is a trail that awaits people who search for the elusive world of peace and isolation. For it is a world without ego, where everything else fades, where mirrors do not exist and where you can drown yourself and find resurrection. “Live it all” is what the Snowman Trek is all about. e. At the small Chozo Dzong there are some lay monks.
