  • Elephant have been integral part of preservation effort of the national parks in the country. There is a shortage of elephant for such efforts so this breeding center plays vital role for increasing the number of elephants.
  • This is the place to visit when you come to chitwan national park. You can visit the elephant and watch the sunset by the river.
  • Interesting and cheap (50) however sad to see the elephants all chained. Many were rocking back and forth and did not look happy (I admit I'm not certain what a happy elephant looks like)
  • One of the largest elephant breeding center of Nepal. Which includes more than 10 pairs of elephant in time being.
  • little management over there would be appreciated ticket rate is rs.10 which i guess anyone can afford.
