19th November 2016, Saturday
We reached our hotel at 9am and checked into our beautiful rooms and had breakfast immediately after. We thought to have rest until lunch time and then planned to explore the areas nearby. After lunch, we left for Corbett falls (waterfall), but by the time we reached, it was closed for public. We tried our best to convince the gatekeeper, but all efforts went to vain. Well, we did what best we could do, i.e. we clicked some lot of pictures and decided to go out somewhere else and explore the place on our own.
We met on the way
We followed the route a friend along knew and continued the beautiful hilly ride. Sun was almost set by that time and we reached the place where we saw the river stream almost crossing the road. To our surprise, we spotted two wild elephants just besides the road. It was almost dark but I managed to click elephant's picture, but the moment elephant noticed the flash, he got angry and he made the noise what we call trumpet, angry trumpet in this case. We asked the tempo traveler driver to accelerate else the elephant might have attacked our vehicle. Well, we left the spot right on time and the whole idea of 'exploration on our own' turned out to be a pleasant surprise.
