We, especially kids, enjoyed elephant riding. Activities of elephants - bathing, eating, saluting by their trunk etcetera were remarkable.

Complet Humbug. Don't step into the jeep ride free of cost. Complete cheating. Be careful. You'll have to shell out 3500 per trip to sit in Mahindra Commander Jeep for 2 hours to do nothing. Be aware.

It was an experience that is highly recommended. The staff is knowledgeable and is passionate about their elephants. Even the water for the shower by the elephant was very clean. A must place to visit! Ms. Karthika Biju was especially helpful and very quick to respond to our queries on email too. Good Luck team "Elephant Junction"

It was almost 30-35 mins of rides which my wife and 2 daughters took. The elephant care taker took photos and shoot video of entire ride, only to say he also uses his sharp weapon... More
