Many Tourists would sure like to embark on canoe ride along the Rapti River inside the Chitwan National Park and get close up views of crocodiles and other wild animals. Canoeing Tourists generally get thrilled out of curiosity watching crocodiles taking sunbath on the river banks and take their photographs with excitement. The crocodiles are truly interesting to watch basking motionlessly under the sun with their snouts wide, and some even smiling with their nasty killer teeth in full view.
The chance to flow along with the rapids of the river for closer looks at the crocodiles and the jungles on the river banks create a major attraction for nature lovers opting for canoe rides. It is also possible to reach Jagatpur, another tourist spot of Chitwan by paddling a canoe some 18 km down stream from Sauraha. A journey down the River Rapti in a traditional ‘dug out canoe’ offers you the chance to quietly observe exotic birds and animals that come for quenching their thirst at the waters edge.
Just make sure you don’t loose your concentration of the crocks that could be hungry and looking for prey, but your river guides are well trained to look after you anyways.
