The open grasslands
and numerous waterholes of the Royal Shuklaphanta render it an
ideal setting for game visitors. The Royal Shukla Phanta
Wildlife Reserve in Kanchanpur district in West Nepal falls on
the indo-Nepal border near Mahendranagar.
The park is a vast expanse of plain grasslands and Sal
forests, while marsh vegetation is found along rivers and
lakes. The park that was originally reserved, as a hunting
area was later concerted to wildlife reserve to protect swamp
deer. The reserve now shelters almost 2,000 swamp deer, around
50 wild elephants and 30 tigers. Other animals found here are
spotted deer, blue bulls, barking deer, hog deer, wild boars,
leopards, jackals, langurs flycatchers, and the endangered
Bengal Florican. Reptile species include marsh mugger,
crocodile, cobra and python.
The reserve can be reached by driving to Mahendranagar, from
where the reserve headquarter is only eight kilometers south.
Another option is to fly to Dhangadi from the capital and then
drive to the park via Mahindranagar.
