It was basically an elephant prison camp. Elephants had both legs chained together. It was a horror show.

I leave here with the same feelings I felt after leaving Auschwitz and the Holocaust museum. Like this overwhelming disgust of how horrible humans can be. Front legs of the elephants chained closet together like prison inmates. Of course the baby elephants are cute if...More

We went on a tour of the Elephant Breeding Center while visiting Chitwan this past week and were frankly fairly upset by what we saw. The center consists of several stalls, maybe 15 in total, all housing elephants and some of their offspring. While I...More

There are many elephants in the breeding center, seen many newly born infants with their mother. It was good visit to learn about elephants

A long way on poor roads. Did not notice any restaurants nearby, you would find these in Chitwan town.

Last year one of the elephant birth produced 2 babies at a time. They are growing up OK. This was the first time ever happened in all the breeding centers in the world.
