Hi there,

Habarana. They do it for 1 hour and have a casket. M Foundation is bare-back riding and AFIK shorter. At Habarana around 50 USD per jumbo.

Have fun,

<Erik> & [Sandya]

I was told by an English girl we met over there that she was unimpressed with the millenium elephant ride and it didn't seem as good as the one we had at Sigiriya. She said it lasted half an hour and they walked along a path next to the road.

We did our ride at Sigiriya so we had a great backdrop for the photos taken by the chap who came with us. He told us about some plants and the wildlife etc... He also took us into one of the lakes that surround Sigiriya Rock and the elephant had a splash around and we got our feet wet!! I can't remember how much our ride cost us... I think it was 8000. It lasted 1.5 hours. The elephant was called Monica!

I'll upload some pictures so you can see what we did.
