A home to many elephants, Kodanad Elephant Training Centre is the largest of such in the state. You can see the forest ranges that flank the centre, with the Periyar river to the south. You can watch the pachyderms being fed and groomed. You may even join in to bathe them, a ritual that’s engaging and interesting. The forest surrounding the centre is known for several medicinal plants and herbs. On a walking trail, you will also be able to visit the Deer Park and the Butterfly Garden. An absolutely rewarding day out for friends and family.
