According to the organiser, Tiger Tops, they are not going to organize the championship, organized for the 35th series successfully in the district, from this year. It remained one of the major attractions for domestic and foreign tourists visiting Nawalparasi.

Managing Director of the Tiger Tops, DB Chaudhary, said, “We decided not to organize the championship to end mistreatment of animals.” This comes in wake of the increasing trend of hoteliers stopping elephant ride in Chitwan and other national parks of the country.
