Do people still ride elephants in India?


Yes they do, for various occasions, such as temple ceremonies, but for example forestry has gone down since many forests are today protected. Those former timber camp elephants are now used as safari riding elephants instead, taking people for rides in protected forests, that previously was harvested teakforests. This is maybe the situation, where you most likely may ride an elephant in India today.
