The Accommodation in Anuradhapura, Sri Lanka

At the night, on the way, we were going to the booked hotel by car. We passed through the town, and the road was darkened. Suddenly the driver stopped the car and turned off all the lights of the car. The guide whispered to me, “There are  wild elephants over there.”

They disappeared into the dark forest immediately.

According to the guide’s description, at the beginning of the 19th century there were 19,500 wild elephants in Sri Lanka 100 years later and indiscriminate capture, hunting for ‘pleasure’ and the destruction of elephants as agricultural pests have catastrophically reduced the figure to just 2,000. There are approximately 6,000 wild elephants in the country now.
