Elephant Herd Crossing | Manas National Park

Best watched in Full HD (1080p).

A herd of about 18 gentle giants including sub-adults & babies crossed the road in complete silence. The babies were protected & surrounded by adults & sub-adults, accompanied by the matriarch of the herd. It was just a matter of luck & timing that we happened to witness this awesome sighting, a minute late & we would have missed this wonderful moment. The whole crossing lasted just over a minute & the herd disappeared in the woods.

Filmed at Manas National Park, Assam, March 2019.
