Elephant Sanctuary - Review
The Elephant Sanctuary or the Kodanad Elephant Training Centre in Abhayaranyam is one of the largest of its kind in Kerala and is a paradise for animal lovers. Located near the southern banks of Periyar River, the Elephant Sanctuary offers a natural habitat for the majestic elephants amid the mountainous forests. Under the surveillance of the Mahouts, you can bathe and massage the baby and adult elephants in the river in the early morning. Take an elephant safari at the main park to watch other elephants feed and roam about in the area. The most heart-melting experience here is seeing the baby elephants grow and get trained for interaction with the human beings, timber loading and also for performing at the religious festivals.

Elephant Sanctuary, Kodanad Reviews
Reach by 8 in the morning then it is good. That's the time when they take elephant out for bath and other stuff and we can follow them. Note the holidays.
Nice place to visit. Calves are trained by well experienced trainer elephants called "താപ്പാന". For the kids, it will be a wonderful location to spend their time for a while. River Periyar flowing by the side of the sanctuary is another attraction for children as well as the old. Owned and maintained by the Forest and wildlife ministry, Govt. of Kerala. The Eco Park and the small zoo attached to the Elephant Sanctuary are now shited to Kaprikkad, a nearby location.
Wow super experience
