Kathmandu, September 23
Chitwan National Park, one of the busiest tourist destinations of Nepal, is preparing to reopen the jeep safari following a halt of several months owing to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The park’s Information Officer Lokendra Adhikari says the safari service is resuming in the national park owing to a decline in the number of Covid-19 cases, the end of the monsoon and requests by local tourism entrepreneurs.
He says the jeep safari is resuming by September 28.
The service was halted since the first week of May owing to the rising number of active Covid-19 cases.
In the past, the safari service would close only for three months between mid-June to mid-September owing to rainfall.
