Continued from previous post…

Most of us were late due to heavy boozing the previous night. We started late at around 11.00 AM and reached Dubare Forest at almost 1.00. That was not at all a proper time to go. Dubare forest in best visited during early morning hours and one can bathe the elephants from 6.30 AM to 8.30 AM every morning.

The forest is surrounded by Cauvery River and we need to cross the river to go into the forest. There is also a boat ride where you can row the boat. I experienced this when i visited Coorg for the second time. It looks easy but there are places where the water is too deep and we have to row with our full strength. The hands will pain a lot. We also knew that there is an elephant Safari everyday but unfortunately by the time we crossed the river and went to

the Pickup place, the time was up. So we did nothing in Dubare forest and just roamed for some time and started off to Cauvery Nisargadhama.

Cauvery Nisargadhama is an island in the river and is connected to land by a long rope bridge. There are various types of herbal trees and bamboo plantations inside the Nisargadhama. We can get into the water from one side. But in some places the water is very deep and the flow is fast. And moreover, there are rocks in the river. So one can get injured because of the water flow. We walked for at least 5 kilometres before getting into the water. Se spent some time near the river water and left. There is also a rabbit park, deer park and snake park inside the Nisargadhama. There was not much we could see in Nisargadhama. So we moved from there and reached the most beautiful place in Coorg, the Nyingmapa Monastery.
