Flora and fauna in Nepal

Flora and Fauna

Nepal is home to diverse floras and faunas simply because of its various climatic zones and geographical features. Rich in wildlife diversity, Nepal largely depends upon the varieties of animals and plants to attract many visitors. The tourism of Nepal would have been incomplete without the availability of unique and rare species of floras and faunas. To preserve this vast array of biological diversities, Nepal has successfully established several National Parks, conservation areas and reserves which have been continuously protecting the various species of animals and birds in the Nepal Himalayas.

Ever since of passing of ‘The National Parks and Wildlife Conservation Act 2029 B.S.’, Nepal has been establishing many national parks and reserves while increasing the number again and again. By 2017 AD, Nepal solely has formed a total of 32 protected areas; 10 national parks, 3 wildlife reserves, 6 conservation areas and 1 hunting reserve, including 10 Ramsar sites and 2 World Heritage Sites {Chitwan National Park and Sagarmatha National Park}.

The protected areas of Nepal that go all over 1,47,181 km2, the total area of Nepal, covers the savannah or the grasslands of Terai, the foothills of the Nepal Himalayas and the ecological zone of the hilly regions. The elevation in Nepal goes from as low as 70 meters above sea level to as high as 8848 meters above sea level within the small range. This extreme altitudinal gradient has created a total of 11 bio-climatic zones ranging from the tropical zone below 500m to the polar zone above 5000m in the Himalayas. The botanists have found 5160 species of flowering plants and 1120 species of non-flowering plants. Similarly, the zoologists have found 181 mammal species, 100 reptile species, 844 bird species, 43 amphibian species, 635 butterfly species and 185 fish species.

To research and protect these vast species of floras and faunas in the Nepal Himalayas, Nature Lovers Treks and Tours promises to play its part. In collaboration with the veterans in the field of wildlife conservation, we have been organizing several travel and tours in the Himalayas. You are always welcome to join us.
