Shuklaphanta, the other wild Nepal
A film by Fabien Lemaire
Duration : 52mn
The Shuklaphanta Reserve is the first national park created in Nepal in 1973. This area is exceptional on many accounts including its diverse landscapes, hundreds of animal species – 22 of which are critically endangered. It may look like a mix of Europe and Africa yet we are truly in the heart of Asia.
The reserve is a small paradise located in the western part of the country. Despite human pressure, it has managed to strive and offer the wildlife a safe haven. However, the fragile cohabitation between man and animal is a daily struggle for associations and park rangers who must raise awareness and educate the people about the advantages of co-existing with Nature.
