Dubare is an elephant capturing and training camp of the Forest Department of Coorg. Dubare is located in between Kushalnagar and Siddapur on the banks of river Kaveri.
The wild elephants are tamed and trained with the help of other tamed elephants and local tribals. Elephants for the famous Mysore Dussehra were trained here sometime back.
Dubare is a home to many wild animals and birds. Even though Elephants being the major attraction one can also spot the Deers, Bisons, Peacocks, woodpeckers, kingfishers etc in Dubare forest range.

Visitors can not only watch and enjoy but also take part in various activities involving Elephants and the way they are trained by the mahouts.

It is a scenic beau to watch the tamed elephants bath in the river and to be scrubbed clean by their mahouts.
