Bardia is a geographic region in the Democratic Republic of Nepal.

Bardia comprises a portion of the Terai, or lowland hills and valleys of southern Nepal. The Terai is over 1,000 feet (300 m) in elevation, and extends all along the Indian border. The Terai once supported a healthy wildlife population in a habitat of 25 foot (8 m) high elephant grass and dense hardwood forests, but had very few people, due to virulent malarial mosquitos.
