An overview of Bardia City
District of Bardiya One of the 77 districts in Nepal is part of the Lumbini Province of Nepal. The district with Gulariya as its capital measures 2.025 km2, with a population of 426.576 by 2011, according to the 2001 census. Bardiya is located in the middle of western Nepal's province of Lumbini. It is 2025 square km west of the District of Banke, south of Surkhet, Karnali District, east of Sudurpashchim District of Kailali Province. Uttar Pradesh, India is located to the south. Bardiya, the majority, is covered with farmland and forest amid lush Terai plains. The Churiya or Siwalik Hills stretch the northern half of the district. Bardiya National Park encompasses an area of 968 square kilometers, including most of the district's northern portion. This park is Nepal's largest untouched wilderness. For the endangered species of animals, birds, and reptiles, it provides woodland, grasslands, and the river.
There have been more than 30 animal species and over 250 birds. The majority of individuals in this area are farmers. On the Babai River sits the district headquarters of Gulariya. When it enters the Terai, the Karnali, one of the most massive rivers in Nepal, is split into many branches. The west branch marks the frontier between the districts of Bardiya and Kailali. The Garuda is named an eastern branch. In its waters was often observed the endangered Gangetic dolphins, but populations were dwindling.
The legendary history of Nepal
Nepal lost it in the East India Company, following by the territorial concessions of the Sugauli Treaty, after the Anglo-Nepalese War (1814-1816) between the then Kingdom of Nepal and East India Company.  She was subsequently returned to Nepal along Banke, Kailali, and Kanchanpur during the regime of Jang BahadurRana. Bardiya, still lushly populated by indigenous tribal persons, was called Tharu in the early twentieth century. Tharusimmigrated further west from the valleys of Dang and Deukhuri. A majority of Bardiya's population is constituted by Tharu from Dang and Deukhuri. Sonaha is another tribe that lives by the river Karnali and by the west boundary of National Park Bardia, which has historically taken gold ores from river sediments and fisheries.

Bardiya National Park is one of the most intact conservation regions in Tarai and home, in addition to innumerable other species and reptiles, to the endangered Royal Bengal tiger and Nepal's famous One-corned tiger. Located in the far-west district of Bardiya, the park lies near the west edge of the Karnali River, and at the north, it flows along the Babai River. The park is covered by large salt and riparian forests and high elephant grass, giving it a perfect habitat for a wide variety of free-roaming animals. In the park, there are 30 animal species, more than 250 bird species, and many reptile variations. There are more tigers' sightings here than in other national parks that draw visitors that visit the elusive cat over and over again.
Other animals found here include elephants, swamp deer, blackbuck, gharials, and pigmeats. Sometimes the exotic Gangetic dolphin also appears along the Karnali surface. Birds including the Florist Bengal, smaller Florist, silver ore, and Sarus cranes have been identified here. In the Karnali and Babai rivers, the park offers sport-fishing options. Autumn, winter, and early summer are the best seasons to visit when the weather is nice and dry but not too hot. Park activities include elephant riding, jeep safari, rafting, fishing sports, and birding with a naturalist. In Bardiya, more than a dozen safari lodges offer superb accommodation and facilities for wildlife guests. Around an hour by car from the Nepalgunj-Surkhet route is the Park Hauptquarter in the town of Thakurdwara. It is also possible to reach Bardiya via road, which crosses Nepalgunj, only a two-hour journey from the national park.
