Along the way later, we see an elephant-trail. This is a very special ancient trail that wild elephants use to pass from place to another. The elephants have been doing this route for centuries and will continue to do so in the future. They will, according to our guide, never ever deviate from this trail. These trails are rough, rocky, dirt paths winding through the forests and tea estates, uphill and downhill. The guide also mentioned that it is inviting trouble if you loiter around these trails when a herd passes through. The locals, who have a deep understanding of the forest and its fauna, respect these ways of the wild. Similarly, the bison too has trails that they have used since time immemorial.
