Morning Rush, Nagarahole

Vehicles await the last elephant in a herd to cross a well-used road near Nagarahole Tiger Reserve

The Mysore-Mananthavadi road passes right through the Nagarahole National Park. This particular stretch of the road is quite smooth and most vehicles zip across, at good speeds. People who have visited this park have seen a lot of wildlife around this stretch and know how dangerous it is when so many vehicles drive past every day.

This image is the last elephant of a herd that crossed the road one evening inside Nagarahole National Park, as safari jeeps and regular vehicles proceed on the road.

A proposed alternative road bypasses the park and also connects several villages that were previously isolated. Hopefully, that will curb fragmentation of the park and bring down roadkills.
