Koshi Tappu Wildlife Reserve lies on the floodplains of the Sapta Koshi River in the south-eastern Terai. The 176 sq. km. reserve is Nepal's smallest wildlife reserve. The eastern and western embankments of the Sapta Koshi River define the area. In 1987, Koshi Tappu was declared a Ramsar site, a wetland of international significance. The government of Nepal declared the buffer zone ( 173.5 sq. km ) surrounding the reserve in 2004.

Flora & Fauna:

Tall grasses make up the majority of the area's vegetation. Once a year, thatch grass can be collected by neighbourhood villagers. These are employed in the construction of house walls and roof thatching. Additionally, there are a few smatterings of mixed deciduous riverine forests and Khair-sissoo scrub forests. The reserve provides vital habitat for numerous species of wildlife. This is where the remaining wild buffalo population is still present. There are currently just about 159 wild buffalo left in the world. They have substantially larger horns than domestic buffalo, which sets them apart. Around 20 other animal species, including hog deer, wild boar, spotted deer, blue bulls, and rock pythons, are also found in the reserve.

Currently, 441 species of birds have been identified, including 14 endemic species, 20 duck species, 2 Ibis species, white-tailed stonechat, striated marsh warbler, 30 shorebirds, 114 waterbirds, Bengal florican, endangered swamp partridge, and 30 shorebird species. With 87 winter and trans-Himalayan migratory species, the Koshi Barrage is a significant resting location for many migrating birds. There are 80 different fish species in the Koshi River. There have also been reports of the critically endangered Gharial crocodile and Gangetic dolphin in the river. Many migratory birds can be spotted on the Koshi Barrage and in the river channel throughout the winter. Enjoying the Natural beauty of all those flora and fauna is the best thing to do at Koshi Tappu National Park  Typically, migration peaks in the middle of March. These locations see a lot of animals in the dark and at sunrise.  The mountain guide trek provides the best package with a bit of cost for the Koshi Tappu Wildlife Reserve.
