Trip Planner: Asia / India / Kerala / Ernakulam District / Kodanad / Kodanand Elephant Training Centre
Elephant capture was banned in India in 1977, but the long tradition of elephant training--reportedly in a more humane instead of torture-based manner--is still very much alive at Kodanand Elephant Training Centre. The site also teaches mahouts (elephant handlers) how to handle elephants with care. A small adjoining park is home to deer and other wildlife. It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to Kodanand Elephant Training Centre and many more Kodanad attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Kodanad driving holiday planner.
Kodanand Elephant Training Centre Reviews
It used to be an elephant training centre, now more of a rehabilitation centre. There are about 10 elephants. Good for a casual walk with family. Entrance fee is there. more »
The Elephant tourist industry (in Asia) is HIGHLY abusive; Im ABSOLUTELY appalled!! People (including me) dont see how these beautiful creatures are treated! more »
Very good place for a one day trip. Parking fee 25/- Entry fee 20/- For kids 10/- Have a deer park and elephant park. Can see elephat bathing.. Nice view to watch. It happens 9:30am to 10:30am... Good walking through the area.. Gives a feel of forest.. The park opens by around 8:30-9:00. If we enter by that time, the full circuit will be over by 11:30. Kids will enjoy a lot...
Good place to visit. Very calm place and we have a handful of things arranged by the eho tourism department. Main attractions are deer Park, elephant camp, children's park and butterfly garden. We can have walk for few distance through forest and the river view and the elephant bathing pool is another attractions on this place.
