Kathmandu, June 10. On Sunday, the Bardiya National Park Office announced that despite the rising temperature, there has been an increase in the arrival of domestic and foreign tourists to the park.

“The number of tourists to the park has increased due to the ease of spotting wild animals, including tigers, during the summer season,” Assistant Conservation Officer Badri Binod Dahal told reporters.

According to the official database, the park currently boasts a tiger population of 125, which has become a major draw for tourists. The park also serves as a habitat for 438 bird species, including migratory birds. “Last summer, the park welcomed approximately 1,000 visitors, but this year the number has already reached around 6,000,” Dahal noted.

Dahal further continued, “In the previous fiscal year, 10,000 domestic tourists visited the park, and this year the number has already reached 15,000. Similarly, the number of tourist visitors from SAARC member countries has increased from 400 to 1,000.”
