Biodiversity is a major reason why Jungle Safari in Nepal has an amazing scope in the tourism industry. In the world map, Nepal is actually very small. In fact, it covers just 0.1% of the global area. However, the fact that 3.2% and 1.1% of the world’s known flora and fauna, respectively, are found in Nepal says a lot about its biodiversity.
Nepal is home to several species of birds and animals. The climatic change also favors the existence of unique wildlife in several parts of Nepal. About 45% of Nepal’s total area is covered with forest. Statistics say that there are over 850 species of birds and 185 species of mammals in Nepal.
There is a huge scope for Jungle safari as an adventurous activity for both domestic and foreign tourists. Especially if you are a nature-loving person, you may find a sense of fulfillment by walking the jungles of Nepal.
