A scene from Dubare Elephant camp ( Near Coorg )

While we were in Coorg on holidays we made a day trip to Dubare Elephant camp, on the banks of Kaveri river. The soft pastel painting below with light between the trees, illuminating the slopes in the distance, is a scene from the banks of Kaveri river. Coorg and around is covered with dense forest and it is a place where one would want to visit again and again. The weather is pleasant throughout the year. I have not had the opportunity to visit Coorg during monsoons but some day I would want to do that.
