Elephant Gathering - Minneriya National Park


The 'Gathering', the largest concentration of Elephants in Asia, happens when over 300 gather on the grassland that sprouts on the receding shores of Minneriya Lake. The Gathering at Minneriya is now ranked sixth amongst the world's greatest wildlife spectacles by Lonely Planet and occurs every year from around June to October, with numbers peaking from August onwards.
