Coorg: Day II - Dubare - Romancing Jumbos

Dawn over the coconut groves

Sunrise

Morning was by a rivulet in the middle of nowhere. The sunrise greets you as you sleepily crawl out of the tents and head off to Dubare. Dubare consists of an elephant training camp, wherein a large part of the fun is just the proximity with the tuskers and lazing in the shade. The most enticing part of this leg of the trip was to bathe the elephants. Here are some of my favourite shots.

I always wanted to go the Dubare Camp. Now that I have seen the pictures the desire has rekindled. btw did the elephants sprinkle (shower) the water on you through their trunks?
