Trip Overview

Does Nepal has dolphin?

Dolphin Watching in Nepal is one of the best tours to see river creatures in Nepal. In Nepal, we can find Susu or Gangetic dolphins. These dolphins belong to one of only three species of freshwater dolphins in the world. Like their cousins in the Amazon and Indus, they are under the list of endangered species. A small, isolated population survives in the far west of Nepal. We will get to see them in the downstream of the Chisapani gorge in the Karnali River.

Where can we find dolphin in Nepal?

Nepal River Dolphin Tour will let you see and enjoy your safari with real river dolphins. Before the 2008 flood, one could see lots of dolphin roaming in the Koshi Barrage. This place lies less than a dozen kilometers from Koshi Tappu Wildlife Reserve. Since then spottings have been less frequent. Nepal Army has rescued three stranded dolphins and released them back to Koshi in early 2009.

We can do Dolphin Watching in Nepal on Bardia or Koshi Tappu. Bardiya National Park holds shelter to different varieties of flora and fauna. We can find at least 150 species of reptiles and fish and over 400 species of birds. It also provides shelter to 48 different species of mammals. This is the largest and most undisturbed national park in Nepal. This national park offers us with largest wilderness area. We will also spot Dolphin in this place.
