good and try elephant ride at thekkady elephant junction. here the elephants are really bigger. its a private farm, for one person 400rs-30min ride. but i guess elephant ride in munnar is much better. munnar is much beautiful place than thekkady.

Me and wife travelled on an elephant.For my wife it was her first experince and she was afraid to do so Also the elephant was 40 years old and was not comfortable to take us.For me - i was having pain on sitting on the elephant.So we took less time rather than the allotted time

Finding this place was a diffcult task as it is not on the main road but the whole experience of the place was really good.You might find the place lil pricey but compared to other elephant parks, it is worth the price. They have different packages,you can choose according to your budget. I opted for elephant ride and elephant bath.... More

Children's like the most . Taking photos with Big elephant after a ride is memorable. Riding on top of Elephant in the green garden is superb.
