ശ്രീലങ്ക കിടു ആണ് – Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage Srilanka EP #2


We are at Srilanka. 2nd day here. At Colombo now Now we are at the hotel room. Had stopped yesterdays video saying about the specialty of the hotel This is what we had to say about. Look out here.. This is the view from our room. Thats the Indian Ocean Yes, the Indian Ocean. This is not the only specialty here. In front down there you can see a railway line. Just next to the railway line you have the road Thats awesome. I have not seen anything like this before. I am sure there is no place in India where you have a railway track just next to the sea. This is surely a beatiful view. Can see the waves hitting the shore Since the room is sound proof, we cant hear the sound of the waves Instead of that its a glass here. If it was a balcony, we could heard the sound of the waves But maybe a balcony isnt safe here Anyways the water isnt so clear but all over its beautiful We could see the ship lights at night. Now you can see them like dots here and there But a beautiful view. Now lets have breakfast Woke up early, so very hungry When I checked the room rent online, its around 5000/- The hotels name is Ozo Colombo. It seems there is a roof top swimming pool. Not sure We shall have breakfast and come. Where are we then going to? We are going to Pinnawala and Dambulla. What all are there? We shall go there and see all that. Then lets have breakfast and come. Its already 8am An awesome pool here. Its an infinity sea view pool You can swim in the pool and enjoy the sea view too We dont have time to get into the pool because we have some long drives today This is a roof top restaurant here. Look outside. Awesome Thats Colombo city. The Indian Ocean next to it. The road Here you have a more clearer view of what I showed earlier The road and the railway track. Its a double line track and train passes through here It would be awesome to have a train ride through here Trains run through here Really? That ride would be super Super for sure I liked the visual that we got from here. The other side also has the same view. Waves are splashing on the shore. You can see the railway station there, Swetha There. You can see the platform. This might be the closest railway line and platform to the sea. Do we have any like this in our coastal area? Alapuzha? Is it like this? Not this close but little away from the sea. I have not seen it so I dont know how it is. Alapuzha is somewhat like this but here if the wave hits hard the water will reach the railway track Look how beautiful Colombo city is Its a well developed city and being developed too. We saw some last evening on the way Most of it is almost developed. Its not very hot here Usually when you go to sea side places, you feel sticky Theres nothing like that here. We are very happy Now we have reached our restaurant. This is also sea facing Its a huge restaurant and we have buffet here What all are there Swetha? You have fish curry and rice too. In the morning itself? This is our Appam. This smells good. I cant understand what it is These are pickles and chutneys. Coconut chutney and Srilankan chilli paste Fish curry You can make the tea you like and have Srilanka is famous for tea also. You have different types of juices here Fruits also. Dosa, vegetable sambar, Sweet potatoes It doesnt look like our sambar. Shall try it out. They have chicken curry, upma, steamed rice.. I have taken upma, chicken curry, sambar, potato fry and 3 types of their chutneys This is my breakfast. What have you taken? I have taken dosa, sambar, some vegetables and the chutneys, sweet potatoes Boiled ones. Enjoy your breakfast! We got to see the train going now Its a local train. Wow! Its Awesome! We can also go one day by train This is the hotel we stayed in. Its a huge building This is the road, rail and sea in front of the hotel. We can cross the railway track and go to the sea. But here there is no beach as such. You can just see the sea. They have put rocks like they have done at Alapuzha I am 1st time standing between a railway track and sea Super Our hotel is also located in a beautiful place. The train is coming. Stand aside Awesome A variety experience The autorickshaw guy got scared seeing us here It was a different experience. Seeing these so close itself is exciting. Janakan has reached. He is our driver cum guide Today we are going for a long drive. Its actually a road trip at Srilanka. When you come to Colombo, try to travel by this local train through this route I dont have the time and space for it. I will surely do it next time If you come do give it a try. I am sure it will be awesome So lets go Today let me get in the front Its full of Janakans books in here You have a library in here Its full of his books. When I enquired about him, I came to know that he is a Chauffeur Guide I didnt understand what he meant. What I understood is that to be a guide here, you have to study You get a license too. They become a driver cum guide. He will be with us this 1 week He will stay with us at the same place we stay too. Thats good Thats so nice. Poeple who are passionate on travelling can travel and work together Thats the guide job here. Its a respectful job and you get a good revenue on it. I liked it. Another train going. This looks new and is good looking We are now going to Pinnawala elephant camp. Its a 3 hours drive from here. Lets say bye to this place and go The place looks neat and clean The infrastucture is so good. Huge buildings and neat and clean streets. The place is not crowded. How beautiful it looks. We have to see and learn all these. I never had this concept on Srilanka. Its so different from what I thought You can really feel an international country feel. What is that? Thats the Indian Embassy In front you have military guarding. All embassies this road. You have the US embassy too This is the Indian Embassy. Lots of huge buildings are here Its like our Gulf countries. The sea is flattened and they are making a new city that side The guide has told us that all these are done with the help of China This is a beach. Sand is taken from there and modified the shore to a modern look Thats how the land is being developed in this area I loved the buses and autos that you see here Its so colourful. The buses and autos are all in different colours They are all Ashok Leyland vehicles. Its written Lanka Ashok Leyland on it. Its written in the front and back. Good job. The vehicles have yellow number plate behind and white number plate in the front. Black on yellow and black on white in the front All the buses are good looking. I liked it. The red buses are government buses. Rest are private buses This car is an electric hybrid vehicle. It works on electric battery and petrol too. I liked the front design a lot The sound inside the car is very less. Right Swetha? I wouldnt say its pin drop silence. But its calm and quite. You can even sleep. You have good leg space too. Are you studing like Hariska? Usually she sleeps as soon as she enters the car. I dont sleep like that. If the view outside is good, then I look outside Then you may enjoy the views I forgot to tell you. We are shooting this the next day and including it in this video Indians dont have to take a Visa to come to Srilanka You have to take an ETA. Its a travel permit. If you go to the official website of Srilanka, you can fill it in 5mts and in 10mts you will get the permit. You just have to give your basic passport details. Its 20 dollars as fee for that. You have the facilities of paying online. Before travelling by flight you will be given a card. Fill the purpose of visit and the hotel you are going to stay in You dont have to show any permit or anything there. You can complete your immigration and come out The immigration process was very simple. Yes Usually in our place we take a long time for immigration. Here it got over fast It was very simple and got over fast Now we are on the road to Kandi. It shows 100kms from here I liked the info here. The driving is very systamized Buses and autos might have little problems. But comparatively disciplined driving is seen here Most of the places have very good roads The main thing is that its neat and clean. Like we have Scania and Volvo in our town, here they have Zong Tong Its Chinese I understood that the petrol rate here is higher than our place Its higher than our place anyhow. Diesel is cheaper here. Its just 50/- here. Vehicles here are little expensive just like Nepal. Thats because most of them are imported You might get that Chinese bus for 25lakhs. But to buy and Alto car you may have to pay 10 Lakhs I am talking about the currency in India. What you buy for 3-4 lakhs in our place, you pay 10 lakhs here Ie 20 lakhs here. Only then you will get that vehicle here Such vehicles are expensive here. Thats because the import tax here is high Now we have come from a 4 lane road to a 2 lane road I feel like we are going through our home town. The only difference is the vehicles here If you keep the autos aside, all the other vehicles are new ones. You have more new vehicles than you have in India There is Mitsubishi, cars of Toyota that are not there in our place, lots of MG Motor vehicles too. They have Isuzu, Suzuki.. Though Srilanka is a Bhuttist country, you dont see monastries or flags here I have not seen any so far. Dont know if it will be seen further down Overall is different 210/- for 3 tender coconuts. Its the currency here So its 100/- INR. See the note here. These are 5000/-, then 500/- I gave 100/- note, got 50/-and 20/- Since the value is less here, they have 5000/- note. Roads are just like in our place. You have small shops also like in our place. So far all are alike. Lets see the rest Look at those flowers Swetha. Looks so pretty. Now we are reaching the Pinnawala village. We traveled for around 2 hours now. Here we are going to see an elephant orphanage. I shall tell you all about it in detail once we are there Its a beautiful village. Elephant loves come here the most. Most of them are tourists and you have lots of hotels and resorts there There are lots of things about elephant to see and know here This is the Pinnawala elephant orphanage. Its open here daily There are two counters. One for locals and the other for foreigners. We already have our tickets booked. Our guide has gone inside with it. He has taken our passports with him. Lets go and see The entry fee for foreigners is 3000/- Srilankan currency. We also belong to foreigners But we are a part of the SAARC countries. They have to pay only 800/- Its 400/- INR which is reasonable I guess. For kids its 400/- Srilankan currency It opens at 8.30am. They have fruit feeding at 9am 10am bath at the river, 12 noon return, they write all in schedule Till 6pm they have activities here. So they have things happening here from morning to evening By the time we have reached here, the elephants are having their bath. Lets go and check out Here are some Malayalee friends. Where are you from? They are from different places of Kerala. Are you here on a tour? How is Srilanka and its climate? All good. Its safe and clean. Thats the doubt all has. They want to know if its safe to come here Its safe Ok then carry on and enjoy Now lets go and see the elephants taking a bath or we will miss it. Our guide is taking is fast. We are already late for it. People are drinking tender coconut water. Small shopping shops are here There are lots of variety things here. You can see Elephants dung here. Looks like the elephant in pattabhishekam It has lots of hair on its head Good looking. It has a chain on it Oh wow! This is really good. Swetha come fast and see this. This is awesome You have ladies in Srilankan style of sarees. Look at the way the elephants take bath. The are returning now Lets go and shoot soon. Most of them are female elephants Thats what they have here more. The elephants are returning after their bath. Awesome Its shower bath fot them. The elephants are enjoying their bath there On the other side some elephants are going back after their bath. All female elephants here Its in 1975 the concept of Elephant Orphanage started It was an Elephant by itself. Even in our place we have lots of elephants now. This is the first elephant orphanage concept in the world This place lies in 25 acres of land and there are nearly 100 elephants here In the beginning we could see orphan elephants here. Those that got lost from their gang like Those elephants were brought here. But now here its like family. You have all the generations here Anyways its surely a place for elephant lovers Lets see the rest of it now. I loved this a lot. They are spraying water on the elephant and giving it a bath. The spraying helps the dirt of the elephants to go. People are feeding it from there. Its super all over This is a well flowing river. They pump water from this river and bathe the elephants Thats an awesome concept. Its been a variety Have you noticed that all the elephants here are so cute. Another thing is that its white on top of their forehead These elephants dont have a chain on them. Very few have chains They are not a disturbing type I think or maybe they are descent in front of us Anyways we dont see any harsh mannerism here. There is an elephant place in Guruvayoor. I am not saying bad but they dont even allow to use your camera Do you know why? Thats because the cruelity should not be leaked out. Its after some people shot the cruel shots there and posted in social media, phones also got restricted If they see you taking pics then the security guy there comes and catches you All are looking at the elephants from up here. Lets also see Lots of tourists here. Awesome view from here Look at this, how many elephants are standing close to each other. OMG, please dont take my mobile. Swetha you can touch it. Why are you calling it like calling pet cats Look at the way that man is showering water on them. I like the cuteness in these elephants I touched it. Swetha, now you touch it. Go fast. It will go now. Poor thing is seeing if we would give anything to eat. I dont have anything with me. Luckily it got something Those watching this, when you come here you can bring something for them to eat I feel so sad for it. Look how close by its coming. Its coming closer with its trunk. I am touching it many times I think this is a place where you can see the elephants close by without any fear See how many of them are standing here. People here are feeding the elephants Its been superb. So nice to see so many of them together Had their bath and they are going back now. Its searching for food and might go away with my camera Now all are out from the river. They are going back home to have good lunch Look at the way she is coming close to you All are going back. The Mahouts here are all freaky. The next set of elephants are coming now The mahouts make way for the elephants to come They are being taken for a bath. Lets stand aside They will just play for fun otherwise. There are naughty ones in them. Look at them playing with each other. This one is aged. Its skin has shrunk. They happiest moment for them is to stay in water to cool their body temperature Thats why they throw mud and sand over the elephants, to reduce body heat Dont kick the dung. I will stamp it somehow to grow my hair Hair grows when you kick elephant dung? For that you have to kick it without knowing. I was going to do that. That when you called me. This is a statue showing elephant putting dung. Its the paper made of these dung that are sold here You have calenders made of that paper These are calenders made out the paper using elephant dung When I see this, it reminds me of Jayasuryas movie Punyalan Agarbathis. In that movie it was how to make agarbathis out of elephant dung. He had succeeded in that That movie was a good one. Swetha is taking the elephants photos Its for her to post in Instagram. Actually I love elephants. I like to see them from far off. Not close by I will touch it when it comes to us. These are the elephants that had their bath some time back. Now its food time for them. Its such a royal life for them. All they have to do is eat and live. They might be working. We as tourists dont see it. There are so many elephants here. They are not too small or too big Some are tall and some short. This one is small. Its a baby elephant just 5ft tall I am 5.5ft. Dont make me too short. That one will be 6ft and the other one will be around 8ft. Thats pretty big Elephants love coconut leaves and palm leaves. They dont want anything else once they get these So we saw the elephant orphanage and its bath. Now we are leaving from here We shall see the next place in our next video. Thats better Do come to Srilanka. Come for 5-6 days. There are lots to see around and enjoy You will see them in the coming videos. We are doing a road trip here We came in Srilankan Airlines but doing road trip here We have a guide and a well planned itenary for our trip. Thats the only difference here. We usually go whenever or wherever we like But here its a fixed itenary for us. So see you with the views from Srilanka tomorrow. Until then Bye…

  34. സുജിത്തേട്ടാ സുജിത്തേട്ടൻ പറഞ്ഞത് വളരെ ശരിയാണ് ഗുരുവായൂരിലെ ആനകോട്ടയിൽ ആനകൾക്ക് നേരെ ക്രൂരപീഡനം ആണ് നടക്കുന്നത് ആവശ്യത്തിന് ഭക്ഷണം പോലും കൊടുക്കാറില്ല
