India outside India - Part 2

And then, Nepal!! 

The first day, in Kathmandu, under heavy rain, I felt like in India.

And then, I realised people were quite different. The Indian doctor accompanying it understood different as “backward” (seriously!). But I meant it like more “relaxed”, more comfortable with tourists. Well that is just how I felt after 4 days! 

Anyways, the reserve we visited, the Chitwan, is really different from any reserve I visited in India.

“At the foot of the Himalayas, Chitwan is one of the few remaining undisturbed vestiges of the 'Terai' region, which formerly extended over the foothills of India and Nepal. It has a particularly rich flora and fauna. One of the last populations of single-horned Asiatic rhinoceros lives in the park, which is also one of the last refuges of the Bengal tiger.” (dixit Unesco) 

The only “vehicles” you meet there are elephants… A royal peace!

Well, the vegetation prevents you from spotting tigers but what a peace…
