has to be my highlight of nepal, and given that ive 4 days to go i dont think it will be surpasssed by anything.
bathing with elephants entailed: jumping on the back of an elephant in the river, getting thrown off when s/he rolled over or tried to stand up, getting back on, and so on and so forth.
the funnest bit was holding on to its big ears and climbing on the trunk, which then lifted my body up to stand on its back [before being hurled off again]. although my mother was standing on the river bank taking photos and watching in horror as i was potentially swept down the river with the current or crushed by the elephant.
i told her to chill out and keep on taking pictures as was her duty.
