Elephants are pictured here moving towards the Bundagala sanctuary after spending the night around Deegavapiya. The elephants do this migration at nightfall daily and go back to the sanctuary at sunrise.

    Why are you searching for Ranil among the elephants, I meant UNPers?

    KD Saturday, 13 April 2013 08:23 AM

    Yeah, right with power lines on sides. Have you ever seen a runway?

    Gajaman Saturday, 13 April 2013 02:50 PM

    A runway not only with power lines on the side, but also with bends on it???

    Seelawathie Saturday, 13 April 2013 08:39 AM

    What a beautiful sight. We should preserve this heritage.

    Abracadabra Saturday, 13 April 2013 08:42 AM

    Super like :-) this is truly a blessed land, minus the people running the show!

    Athakolla Saturday, 13 April 2013 03:47 PM

    Strange you have a picture of freely roaming elephants, some of the responders thinks of terrorists some thinks of politics. Think of elephants and the environment and how protect our environment . Please support the environmental activists on the Meethotamulla garbage dump issue and other equivalent issues.

    Saj Saturday, 13 April 2013 05:08 AM

    At the moment I look at the pic I shocked is it in Mattala airport run way????????

    Vincentabraham Saturday, 13 April 2013 05:18 AM

    Soon all this will be gone! It will be casinos and hotels! Paradise lost!

    Citizen Perera Saturday, 13 April 2013 09:27 AM

    Wild elephants are more reliable , trust worthy than UNP elephants.

    moda pissa Saturday, 13 April 2013 04:57 PM

    Just like the two-legged elephants, they are wandering aimlessly !

    Frederick Saturday, 13 April 2013 05:47 AM

    I read somewhere about an UNDERPASS which had been constructed for elephants to cross which very soon they had picked up on and were USING Was it in Africa?.Ask the conservationists.
    Otherwise with the way Sri Lankans drive there is a national tragedy waiting to happen.

    S.Peramunagama Saturday, 13 April 2013 09:50 AM

    Are they the 18 that crossed over? Where is Karu? The " Nopaayana Tharu"?

    MRN Saturday, 13 April 2013 05:14 PM

    it is more beautiful when you live in another country

    asoka Sunday, 14 April 2013 04:50 AM

    Rush hour in paradise.

    Punny Pellow Saturday, 13 April 2013 02:36 AM

    Terrorists?.

    ANTON Saturday, 13 April 2013 02:42 AM

    IN SHORT, UNP IS MOVING TOWARDS THE BUNDAGALA SANCTUARY. SEE THE BEAUTY OF THEIR TEAMWORK WHICH DOES NOT POSSESS IN HUMANS.

    ANYWAY EYE- CATCHING PHOTOGRAPHS, LOVELY.

    Pluto Saturday, 13 April 2013 02:50 AM

    Oh! my island the sun. How beautiful.

    PissuGootha Saturday, 13 April 2013 02:51 AM

    AT LEAST THERE SEEMS TO BE SOME lAW AND ORDER WITH THESE ELEPHANTS, AND CROSING A ROAD IS EVEN DONE SO PEACEFULLY. wHILE HUMAN IN SRI LANKA ARE BEHAVING WORSE THAN ANIMALS LEAD BY THE POWERFUL. GOD SAVE THE ELEPHANT FROM THE TWO LEGGED IDIOTS IN THE GOVERNEMENT.

    meranchi Saturday, 13 April 2013 03:05 AM

    Cobra Saturday, 13 April 2013 03:48 AM

    On their nightly raids on chenas for food! We have reduced these majestic elephants to mere thieves by encroaching and grabbing their land but they know just what to do!!
