We had visited a number of places but unfortunately our camera had some problem.So couldn’t take the pictures of many beautiful places.I have included some.

This is Sauraha.My son,who is four years old, loves this place very much.We have to visit this place again and again for him.

This is one of the most loved place by the people

The river has a lots of Gharials.

As the evening approaches the river looks this beautiful

Cannoying is one of the favourite activities here.

And finally this is the rope bridge which shakes when we walk on it

My son’s most loved animal.Isn’t the baby cute?

Elephant safari is most popular activity

I will certainy include some more photos of my family holiday in comming days.

those elephants are really lovely camellia, to watch people bathing them and playing with them is quite amazing for me and you are so right that baby is cute;)))))
as to the gharial--- I didn't know anything about them or what I was looking for so I google it and again what a fascinating holiday, google says that the gharials are endangered, is it an animal reserve where they live, It looks very beautiful, thankyou for sharing xxx

I so enjoyed all your photos ... what a beautiful place. Loved the photo of the river as evening approaches! It must be amazing to see elephants every day ... beautiful creatures. We only get to see them here when the circus comes to town!
The gharial is an interesting creature ... haven't seen a crocodile like that before. The bridge is also interesting ... not sure I could walk all that way with the bridge shaking!!

I am very happy that you liked it Bornagain.

Glad you had a nice holiday, Camillia. Nice pictures, especially the river one! I liked it very much, too. The elephants look fantastic, over here in the UK we only see them in circuses & zoos.

The first photo hasn't come out. The garials are strange looking crocodilians with very long thin jaws used for catching small fish. I found this on Wikipedia.

This is a wonderful blog, Camillia.. What is a gharial? is it a crocodile? Will have to look it up. How beautiful your area is and how different from where I live! This is one reason I have stayed on goY, there are many gardeners on here from all over the world...

It is a close member of crocodile.But it has a longer,slender snout and is probably smaller than a crocodile.Its scientific name is gavialis gangeticus.Thanks Lori for liking my blog.

Are they dangerous to people, Camillia? Or are they a scavenger species? Like a sanitary maintenance crew?? lol... As soon as you mentioned the long slender snout I remembered seeing pictures of them. Crocs are really interesting animals and very ancient in origin. From the picture it looks quite huge! gavialis gangeticus...does that mean it lives only in the Ganges? Sorry to bombard you with questions... I find them fascinating. The elephants are beautiful too. Such large creatures but for the most part gentle. Saw a video on the i'net of a pair of rogues which attacked a village...the world is shrinking and habitats are disappearing...we have wild animals showing up in towns now over here too. bears, moose, coyotes, wolves, elk...just depends on which part of the country you're in. And the interaction isn't always a happy one.

Of course they are Lori.They are not scavengers.They feed on a number of invertebrate preys and some smaller vetebrates like frogs but their main food is small fishes.The name Gharial is derived from the Hindi word Ghara which means a mud pot.The bulbous structure on the tip of the snount is considered as the mud pot.They are abundently found in the Ganges ( India and Nepal ).But they are found in other part of the world too.Are the bigger animals are dangerous but again I think we are responsible for that .No problem Lori with the questions :)I have tried at my level best to answer you.Hope I have put some light on it.Have a great day.
