Situated in the south east of Nepal, the Koshi Tappu Wildlife Reserve is a 'twitcher's (bird watcher's) paradise. Established in 1996 and covering 175 square km., its numerous water holes, marshes and grasslands support a vast array of rare and endangered species of birds - as well as an important population of Asiatic Buffalo. The Reserve can be reached overland or by air. By air the flight takes an hour (Kathmandu to Biratnagar) plus an hour drive to the camp. Alternatively, you can follow the main East-West Highway eastwards from Kathmandu and divert from Jamuwa to the camp site (which is 2.5 km).
