• Everyone knows Nepal for its snow-capped peaks, high-altitude treks, and images of pristine mountains. We suggest you complete your Nepalese trip with a Crocodile Breeding Center visit to discover the superb crocodile that eats fish in Chitwan.
Crocodile Breeding Center and the gharial
• The crocodile of Chitwan is known as the gharial. The gharial is a crocodile with a long, tapering muzzle, a protrusion at the end, and ill-placed teeth. It feeds on fish. Knowing that this species is threatened, the Crocodile Breeding Center helps to repopulate the rivers of Térail and preserve this engendered animal.
Why should you visit the Crocodile Breeding Center and the gharial?
• The Crocodile Breeding Center is the most important reproduction center in Nepal, dedicated to these crocodiles. While visiting the Crocodile Breeding Center, you will have meetings with the Tharu, original inhabitants of the Terai who, until the mid-20th century, were the only ones to reside in the Chitwan region then infected by malaria. You will understand what made these people “gharial egg eater” abandon this tradition.
• The Crocodile Breeding Center offers you the exploration of scorching heat, thick jungles, wild animals, villages of houses with woven walls, and a crocodile discovery with a mysterious outgrowth today threatened by water pollution and overfishing. In the Crocodile Breeding Center, you’ll find guides to advise you on what to do if you encounter a crocodile. But if you want our advice, just avoid swimming in rivers.
• The Crocodile Breeding Center is a noble institution that aims to protect the natural habitat of Chitwan. A visit to the Crocodile Breeding Center will allow you to learn many things about the gharial and Tharu. So do not hesitate to pay a visit to this center and share your experiences with us. We look forward to reading your comments.
