ELEPHANT VILLAGE AT AMBER JAIPUR :

Kindly note that the India's first and the world's third elephant village The ambitious of haathi gram (elephant village) was of the project is to shift 51 families of elephant owners and mahouts to the village located at Kunda near Amber. The idea is to accommodate all the elephants and their caretakers at one place. Besides, the tourists would be provided an opportunity to see the elephant activities together in a cluster.

Three years after the concept of an exclusive retreat for the elephants and their mahouts was mooted, the Hathi Gaon' (Elephant Village) finally seems to be witnessing some action. However, the project was slated for completion by the mid of 2010. The Amber Development & Management Authority (ADMA) has asked the mahouts' to fill the requisite application, to further the process of transfer of elephants to their natural habitat. While the sheds for 51 tuskers are ready, and the boundary wall and the pond have been constructed, the trees, which were planted last year, over an area of 30.05 hectares have failed to survive.

India's first and the world's third elephant village .The estimated Rs 50 million projects, over an area of 30.05 hectares with a fancy boundary wall and concrete structures is ready, the elephant housing is still awaiting electricity and water connection.When completed, the project had envisaged basic comforts for the pachyderms, besides creating several attractions for tourists and will provide a natural park-like shelter for elephants with extensive plantation, a well-equipped veterinary hospital and proper sewerage facilities. A museum, "shilpgram" and a cafeteria were also planned for visitors, who could opt to view the elephants from the "machans" (tree huts) .

Under the project, the tourism department will provide shelter to about 100 elephants in the first phase, while 60 more dwellings will be built in the next phase. So far, the village has a single water body, with a little water collected through rainwater harvesting. A few trees were planted in the courtyards but all that stands today is bare stumps of trees.

An elephant ride to the top of this fort is one of the most popular activities in Jaipur .This is the chance to ride an elephant up to the Amber Fort like the royalty of Rajasthan once did. In Amber fort about 100 elephants were used to ride to the historic fort.Mount the animal from a raised platform and sit comfortably in a specially designed, secure seat as the majestic animal winds its way up the ramparts of the fort.The elephant is a gentle creature and the mahout (a person who drives the elephant) uses an ankush (a sharp hook used to guide a tamed elephant by prodding it on the back of its head) to guide the animal up the ramparts. The animals look beautiful as the mahouts decorate them, especially the trunk, with floral and geometric patterns using coloured chalk and powders.Once guests reach the top, will enter the Fort through the grand Singh Pol (Lion Gate) gateway and continue to Jaleb Chowk, the courtyard where you will disembark from the pachyderm

With the summer regulations for the use of elephants coming into force, limiting the number of rides and timing, according to the summer regulations an elephant could be used for either 03 Rides or till 10.30 am,whichever is early TILL 30 April 2010 and from 01 May to 15 July 2010 will be only 02 Rounds.
