In Himalayas you can see numbers of unique wildlife. From colorful birds to elusive big cats, you can not see these animals outside the zoo, at home. For information about wildlife in the Himalayas, you can see these beautiful creatures, and see where they can be.

The Yak

A yak is a long-haired animal belonging to a cow or buffalo, which lives in the Himalayan region. It has been used for domestic use, and it is used regularly for transporting goods around mountainous areas because it is very strong.

The Yak

It can stay at high altitudes, and it has too much hair to keep it warm. They mainly eat grass, and spend time like cows, grazing in the herd. When you can find yak in Nepal, the time taken for being a yak is actually a cow-yak hybrid, dozo.

Snow Leopard

Snow Leopard

These animals are elusive because there are not many survivors in the wild (this is endangered in the IUCN red list of endangered species). They live at very high altitude, heavy heavy tails, which help them in balance and maneuvers in the mountains, and mix them completely in icy, rocky landscapes

Red Panda

The Red Panda is much smaller than its more famous distant relative, red and white instead of the giant panda and black and white! It is native to the Eastern Himalaya (and parts of China). Its image will be familiar to someone who uses a fixed web browser, because it is also known as Firefox.

Red Panda

While the Red Panda is endangered, which means that the opportunity to spots a lot is not very much, they are the most common in the Eastern districts of Nepal, such as the areas around Eelam, Kanchenjunga, and the closure of Langtang National Park near Kathmandu.

Royal Bengal Tiger

Royal Bengal Tiger

While not actually found in the mountains, the Royal Bengal Tiger can be seen in Nepal. Although this fantastic creature is endangered, and poaching continues in India and Nepal, the number of tigers in Nepal is increasing. The best places to see the animals are Chitwan National Park, Bardiya National Park and Shuklaphanta Wildlife Sanctuary.

Himalayan Monal (Danphe)

Although it is often called pheasant in English, this word does not attract true images for this fantastic bird. Damp is the national bird of Nepal, and the male is brilliantly colorful and iridescent, almost like a peacock.

Himalayan Monal

It can be found across the Himalayas, and it is likely that you will be in one place in the Sagarmatha National Park while adopting the Everest Base camp trek.

Himalayan Tahr

Due to the loss of prey and habitat, this beautiful animal has been listed as a threat in the IUCN red list of endangered species, so it is very rare. While it is related to the wild goat, it is better adapted for the rocky slopes of the Himalayas, and from far away its long shagra hair can look like a yak.

Blue Sheep (Bharal)

No, they are not really blue, but the brown coat of this animal is sometimes seen in blue color. These animals live in the Himalayas, in the west, from Pakistan to Bhutan in the east. They are a major food source of Snow Leopard, but they do not put themselves in danger or threat, so you have a great chance to see them in the wild.

One-horned Rhinoceros

Rhinoceros

These powerful animals are not found in the mountains of the Himalayas, but no trip to Nepal will be complete without the visit of Chitwan National Park at Tarai. Chitwan is home to the vast majority of a horned rhinoceros in Nepal, because it has run a very successful conservation program there. There is practically a guarantee of a scene during the Safari in Chitwan, with more than 600 animals.

Rhesus Macaque

Rhesus Macaque

This ‘Garden-Variety’ monkey is omnipresent throughout South Asia, and it will be a challenge to never see it during your visit! A favorite place in Kathmandu is known in the name of Swayambhunath Temple (Bolaral Bharwar Temple), where Chik Bibans live in hundreds of thousands. But be warned, they are very naïve, and do not hesitate to snatch food from you, so keep in mind.

Asian Elephant

Elephants in the mountains? Again, no, not at all. But Asian elephants can be found in the plains of Nepal. The journey of Chitwan or Bardiya National Parks should be along with being in Nepal, and many beautiful and soft animals can be found in and around these parks.

Asian Elephant

Be aware that riding elephants is a morally controversial practice, and there are other ways to enjoy wild beings, which are not a threat to your health. At elephants going to Chitwan on a jeep safari and seeing elephants far away is very little.
