You’re right in the heart of Kerala’s resplendent greenery. How about a really local experience in viewing elephants being trained? Located about an hour and a half from Kochi is the Elephant Training Centre at Kodanad. At the elephant kraal you can also see the pachyderms relaxing in the sun and being fed and groomed. If you are lucky, you might just be able to view them getting bathed.

Go for a short walk that takes you to the interiors of the forest, on the south bank of the Periyar river – a guided tour with a naturalist who will introduce you to some of the flora and fauna in the area. Also on the way is an animal rescue and rehabilitation centre that you can visit.hh
