Wild Asia: Nepal and India
Season 2, Episode 8 of Art Wolfe’s ‘Travels to the Edge‘
Beyond India and Nepal’s crowded cities lie precious remnants of wild Asia where tigers, rhino and bear still roam.
In episode eight, Art Wolfe travels by elephant deep into Kipling country in search of the last of the planet’s Bengal tigers. Here, through the lens of his camera, he captures images of mahouts—handlers bound to the elephants they’ve cared for from childhood—as they bathe and tend to their animals. In Nepal, Art encounters exotic wildlife including rare Asian rhinos, elusive sloth bears, and crocodile-like primeval Gharials.
