Parsa Wildlife Reserve is a protected area in the inner Terai lowlands of south-central Nepal established in 1984 and covers an area of 499 km sq. The dominant landscape of the wildlife reserve, the Churiya hills ranging from 750m to 950m run east-west of the wildlife reserve. The hills present a very rugged face with numerous gullies and dry streambeds. As the foothills are very porous, water flows underground and surfaces at a distance of about 15 km from the base of the hill. The typical vegetation of the park is tropical and subtropical forest types with Sal forest constituting about 90% of the plant. Chir pine grows in the Churiya Hill similarly, Khair, Sisal and Silk cotton trees occur along watercourses.
