These Langur monkeys actually posed for us!!
Then we found an elephant with only left tusk. He appeared mild and I took a photo from a very close distance. (Later, I heard that the elephant was quite infamous and has had some bad encounters with the tourists).
The next point was Gopala Swamy Betta. It is the highest point in Bandipur range and provides a panoramic view of the sanctuary. The place used to be normally deserted in my previous visits. But this time it was filled with tourists. There is a temple built by Cholas at the top.
The rest of the journey from Gopala Swamy Betta to Bangalore was uneventful with only busy Mysore-Bangalore traffic to watch.
