Dubare Tourism

In the district of Kogadu, Karnataka is a forest camp nestling along the river Kaveri called Dubare. The very less explored Dubare is also known as an elephant camp.  It is a very important hub for the Karnataka Forest Department's elephants. Dubare is also a popular tourist attraction as visitors come, watch and also get involved in various activities with these elephants. This place is settled in the dense green forest surrounded with backwaters all around. There are various jungle lodges and hotels that provide a lot of other activities that keep you entertained. One can also spend their entire day just basking in nature's lap and rafting through these backwaters.

Nisargadhama and Veerabhoomi are two other main attraction around this forest area. Tourist indulge in many adventure sports like trekking, river rafting etc and also on leisure activities like fishing and elephant riding. Treks around this area are on well-defined routes and are completely safe. The significant point about this place apart from the elephant camp is that one can experience still water rafting, especially those who are afraid of river rafting in general. The forest area is mostly covered with deciduous forest and is home to many wild animals and birds. One can always see the Asiatic wild elephant passing through these forests along with spotted deer, tigers, leopards and gaur. Being around a swampy terrain, the Dubare forest is also home to many reptiles and non-venomous snakes.
