Elephant Polo in Nepal

BEST MONTHNovember and December


Elephant Polo in Nepal Elephant polo is one of the rare, adventures and only of its kind in Nepal. The World Elephant Polo Association (WEPA) organize an annual Elephant polo tournament in the airfield of Meghauli Chitwan, south west of Kathmandu and north of the Indian border. Elephant polo is similar to the Horse polo but you can easily see a bit difference. A fast (at times), exciting game, like polo but with elephants and longer sticks, this is quite possibly the biggest sport in the world. Every December since 1982, Tiger Tops has played host to the World Elephant Polo Championships. The tournament is played on a grass airstrip at the northern edge of Chitwan National Park, with players and guests staying at the nearby Jungle Lodge. Elephant Polo is a variant of Polo sports played riding on an elephant. The “Game for Kings,” Polo was reinvented to accommodate the friendly animals. The major motto of the sports is to promote Chitwan as a popular tourist destination and to help conserve the diminishing population of wildlife in Nepal. Elephant Polo in Nepal runs between the last week of November and first week of December.
