To reach the elephant sanctuary of Dubare, we crossed this green heaven on a raft.
By the way, this was our vacation 2011 project. Little V and I painted these cute friends on her T shirt
As we reached the other side, we found Kaveri and her baby heading to the river for a bath
This sanctuary has 19 elephants. 30 year old Gopi and 34 year old Kaveri were with us that day. The names of all the 19 elephants, their ages have been displayed on a board. It is in Kannada.
The kids loved the rides on the elephants and fed them coconut kernels
This was 30 year old Gopi
Our next stop over was at Abbey falls and Nisargadhama in Coorg. They say, it has little water because of summer. Nevertheless, it was mesmerising to view the waterfall.
