There is an entry fee of 100 bucks and there are a few crocodiles. If you have no interest in reptiles, stay away. If you are interested then you can visit once. Don’t expect much.

There are a few crocs and other reptiles in closed environs. They are of all size - really big ones to tiny tots. Just lazing around and doing their thing I suppose! You can spend 30-45 mins. Kids will like this place.

You can take your children and families to see the rare reptile that is at the verge of extinction. Here it's bred and conserved. You can also see other animals.

Its a crocodile park probably managed by an individuals and charging few bucks as entry fee. Park is having four small ponds with crocodiles and there similar spices. Good for time pass and obviously must visit place for children.

This place has 8 plus crocodiles with babies. The corcs were all just lazing around, infact they all were so still that one would doubt if they are real. The small ponds are kept pretty clean but the grills look fragile, easily breakable by a...More

The tickets to the place cost 100 bucks . The place is not worth hundred bucks , it is like a private residence , small, shoddy and shanty. Hardly any maintenance. The place is a total humbug. Don't visit .

There are not many places to see in Phuntsholing. This becomes the must visit place, if you are staying in Phuntsholing. You can see huge Crocodiles/Alligators resting. People don't find this fascinating, but I do. If you are even a little bit into wildlife, you...More
