BABAI VALLEY TREK
In a Nutshell
Through the East portion of Bardia National Park flows the Babai River. The Babai offers absolutely fantastic scenery and amazing wildlife watching opportunities and is much less frequently visited by tourists; giving you a true feel of remote wilderness. This area of the park is frequented often by large groups of wild elephants who come to feed on the rich vegetation and also to eat clay from a salt lick that can be found here. There is a large resident population of tigers, and teh area also supports rhino, leopards, sloth bears, jackals, hyena, mugger and gharial crocodiles. For bird watching the Babai has rare birds such as the grey-headed fish eagle, great hornbill, crested kingfisher and the slaty woodpecker. The river itself harbours all forms of aquatic life such as turtles and otters and holds a large population of Golden Mahseer, Goonch and large snake-head fish. This jungle adventure follows the Babai River from the Babai Dam for 45km up to Chepang (the North-Easterly point of the park). The journey will take 5 days 4 of which will be spent camping in the forest in jungle hammocks.
