A typical spot to stop for Chitwan visitors, it will spark mixed emotions. While its stated purpose is to breed elephants and it provides easy photo ops for elephant mothers and babies, it's troubling to see them locked in chains. Many will never truly experience freedom in the wild and are doomed to human servitude.
Some will be trained to carry passengers for safaris. This is a matter of commerce, so Chitwan will only shut down their elephant rides when tourists stop booking such tours.
