I've been to sanctuary several times and had the opportunity to see elephants. Beware of monkeys while you enter the gate.

The roads are actually not good but still you are able to travel. We actually travelled from valparai-pollachi-chinnar-munnar. Its very hot during summer. I don't know what the road will look like when its raining. The trip is actually good.
