Dubare Elephant Camp

Dubare Elephant Camp is located at the edge of Dubare forest, on the bank of the river Kaveri, on the Kushalanagar - Siddapur road in Kodagu district.
This is mainly an elephant-capturing and training camp of the Forest Department. Nearly 150 elephants are trained in various camps. The wild elephants are tamed and trained with the help of other tamed elephants and local tribes (the Kurubas). The Elephants tamed here, attend various jobs during the day and at night they come down to the river to bathe and to be scrubbed clean by their mahouts.

The Elephants used for the famous Mysore Dasara procession (also known as Jumboo Savari) held on the streets of Mysore city are trained at Dubare Elephant Camp.
