The Koshi Tappu Wildlife Reserve was established in 1976, mainly to preserve the habitat for the remaining population (a little over 160) of rare wild water buffaloes. The reserve extends 175 sq. km. To the north of the one kilometer-long barrage that spans the Koshi River. The barrage is the best place in Nepal to see migratory and resident marshland birds. The vast expanse of the open water created by the barrage, and the marshes, lagoons, sandbanks, mudflats and arable land that lie around it offer an outstanding wetland habitat, thus making Koshi Tappu one of the finest birdwatching sites in Asia. The most rewarding and regular wildlife outings at the reserve are done on foot, exploiting the grasslands, river lagoons and woodlands, and the vicinity of the barrage, a short drive away. As mentioned the reserve is an important habitat for migratory birds, especially water birds.
Over twenty species of duck are found here along with ibis, storks, egrets and herons with many species not found anywhere else in the country. Koshi Tappu also provides sanctuary to the last surviving wild buffalo in Nepal; other species include wild boar, hog deer, spotted deer and blue bull. Accomodation is provided either in a thatched cottage style rooms or Safari tents.
