Let me blunt.... the elephant camp is a total waste! We paid Rs.100/head for an elephant ride, and believe me, it was just one small round around a small house like structure. Not even 5 mins. Not worth at all!!! And an extra entry of Rs.20 for entry! Just a total waste.
But, there is something more to this place. The access to the camp is by taking a boat (rs.30/head - to n fro). It is just a 5 mins ride across the river. Now, the interesting part is, when we want to get back to the parking lot, we opted to walk across the running water! we were 8 of us together. And it was total fun! took about 30 mins to cross! quite slippery at certain points and yes, quite a risk too!!!
So, you may choose to walk either to or fro or even both if you have the time! :)
