Jungle drum

After the heady days in Pokhara and the surrounding area, we went to the Nepalese Terai. Blessed land with lush greenery and an endless variety of animals. In a place called Chitwan we met intoxicating humidity, that was difficult to endure without air conditioning. We stayed in a humble hotel, where we were the only guests, and began looking for an opportunity to visit the jungle. We found out that the hotel is close to the elephant breeding center and they offer unusual safari. To be honest, I am against the use of these giant and smart animals for this purpose, but we were told that elephants receive good care and nutrition, and all this needs money. So I hope we didn't cause great discomfort to the elephant, and sponsored the center. Elephant safari gives the opportunity to see wild animals in their natural habitat, because the elephant smell is stronger than  human and is not perceived as a threat. So finally perched on our huge friend, we went deep into the Terai, cutting by our faces endless spider's web. Gorgeous plants appeared before us - centuries-old trees and creepers entangling their trunks. Between the dense foliage every now and then we could see a herd of royal deers. Coming out of the woods to one of the sunny glades we saw an incredible sight. The female rhino grazing next to her little three-month cub. Baby was incredibly nice! He hasn't even had the horn and tried to stay close to his mother. I'm so glad I was able to see these amazing animals in the wild! That day we also had the luck to meet a small caiman basking in the sun and wild elephant at the watering. These place bring to me incredible delight because nature here is in all its glory and power. I would like to spend more time  there watching the beautiful animals, but out trip to Nepal came to an end.
