Karthika was very helpful via emails to ensure I booked the best package for my time in Thekkady. In the end we booked the half day tour. There are 5 elephants at the junction and they seem looked after and calm, it'd definitely a touristy place but an enjoyable experience, all it needs is some extra information during the activities,...

No one should not miss the elephant ride at Thekkady. Very adventurous one. If you have any hip problems, kindly avoid it as you have to stretch your legs. Waiting time is some what irritating, because we were not informed about the correct time for the ride

We weren't as interested in riding the elephants as we've done that before but enjoyed seeing them and being with them.

A day with elephants is really good. Riding the natural forest up the hill on the elephant in a scenic view is never before experience. Elephants were trained well and were calm all the time. Bathing the elephant and elephant shower were really fantastic. Must visit place. But rates are high.

I had been here with my son who thoroughly enjoyed the elephant ride across the tree plantation.he learnt about cardimom,coffee plant,cloves,cotton etc.he enjoyed giving bath to elephant and enjoyed the shower given by them. I feel its bit pricey (rs 2400 for 2) but then its fine as its one time visit and one must experience it...

We had a great afternoon here. The Elephants are very well looked after. After a ride through the jungle we was able to bathe them, this was one of the hilghts of our trip, it was great! And so wonderful! It is a quiet place and we felt it wasn't touristy. They let us take our time with the elephant,... More

When we got there, there was a very long wait... when we finaly saw the elephants, the first thing we watched was them dragging along some wood- the owner was MEAN to the elephant and hitting it. He was not allowed to talk to the elephant but when he was, he was shouting at it. IF you book, do the... More

Went there with my siblings in the month of Jan 2017. The place is accessible and elephants are well trained and cared for. A good visit for animal lovers.

We took the 30 min ride, and thoroughly enjoyed it. You ride astride the elephant (rather than in a howdah, as in some places). This is close up and personal - you can stroke her ears as you ride. The position can be uncomfortable for some people, as it is a very wide straddle. Do not wear your best clothes!... More
