Elephant Gathering at Minneriya National Park is known as the largest wild Asian elephant gathering in the World at any given time. The gathering peaks during the August to september of dry season. At dry season herds up to 350 elephants are seen at the Minneriya National Park within a few square kilometers of the Minneriya Reservoir. Experience “The Gathering,” a name given to the elephants that assemble on the banks of the Minneriya Reservoir during the dry season. View the famous elephants as they graze on the grasses growing on the tank bed.
Wild elephants migrates from Wasgamuwa National Park to Minneriya National Park for search of food and shelter. Tourists visit Minneriya National Park largely because of elephants, especially in dry season.
