Koshi Tappu Wildlife Reserve reviews
Good sightseeing. Wild buffalo and deer can be seen grazing grass. Few elephant and a baby elephant in the camp site. Great morning and evening view. Sometimes wild elephant visit the area, seen blocking the roads. Famous for bird lovers.
Not many birds to see at this time. To see some wild buffaloes. Very nice is the nature and the riverbed. It gives some watchtowers. Nice view there into the nature. A peaceful place. I am German and on motobiketour in Northeast-India and Eastnepal.
