Man turns to elephant to get around flood-hit Nepal

Text size Aa Aa

This is the moment a man used an elephant to negotiate the flood-ravaged streets of southern Nepal.

More than 220 people have died in Nepal, India and Bangladesh in recent days as floods and mudslides affect the region.

The footage was shot in the village of Sauraha, an area popular with tourists near Chitwan National Park on the country’s southern border with India.

It comes after elephants were used to help rescue hundreds of tourists, who had been left stranded after the Rapti River burst its banks.
