This is an interesting activity as it gives the visitors a view of their surroundings atop an elephant. There are a host of activities like Elephant Bath which involves indulging oneself (and the elephant) in a playful session in the pool built to bathe the elephants. During this session, you can have your photos taken as you immerse yourself in total bliss. Other sessions which are of a longer duration include a two-hour long elephant ride, a session on commands and communication with the elephants, a session where there is a display of how timber is dragged by the elephants combining their immense strength and incredible dexterity. More options are available for those with strong heart-you can enjoy elephant rides to the forest interior and have a thrilling close view of various animals like Bisons, Sambar Deer and other Elephants.

Spice Plantations Visit in Thekkady

Elephant rides are organised at the Periyar Sanctuary by the private people. The excitement lies in the unique vantage point of perceiving the forest and its rare flora and fauna from the back of the largest land mammal on the planet. The sways and movements and the reality of the loneliness of the forest, the feeling that this is where carnivores and herbivores have cohabitated in a tense equilibrium for centuries, is a truly intense experience. Kids and adults both enjoy a new and exhilarating vibe that they will never forget.
