text: The night and morning were quite cold in Dimapur as well. An enormous difference to the humid heat of July. I had heard that there is an elephant camp in Dimapur and I started off earlier than necessary so I could see it on my way to Kohima. The car in which we had parked all our things was then supposed to meet me there.
