Elephant Migration between Minneriya, Kaudulla and Hurulu Eco Park:
There are three national parks in the close proximity within that region. They are the Minneriya National Park, the Kaudulla National Park and the Hurulu Eco Park. All of the three parks are immensely popular among locals and foreigners the world over for their large herds of elephants. Generally, each year during the months of July to September large groups of elephants are found in the Minneriya National Park and then they migrate to Kaudulla National Park during the months October to November due to high rains and lakes getting filled up. Then the elephants move on to Hurulu Eco Park for the final leg of their migration during the month of December to January.
