History of Kodanad Elephant Training Centre

Kodanad was known as one of the largest elephant training centres in the year between 1950 and 1960. Newly captured elephants from neighbouring areas were trained here ever since. It was in the year 1970 that government of India banned the capturing of elephants. After this ruling decision by the Government, Kodanad has been known as a rescue training centre of elephants.

Kodanad Elephant Training Centre is now relocated to Abhayaranyam near Kaprikkad. It is a famous tourist destination for many visitors who come here during a vacation. The Centre is bordered by high mountain ranges which make it a picturesque destination for many visitors. As the Kodanad is built along the southern banks of River Periyar, you can enjoy sightseeing at the places nearby. There are two more elephant training centres in Kerala - Muthanga of Wayanad and Konni in Pathanamthitta. At the PunnathurKotta in the district of Thrissur, more than 40 elephants are specially trained to be kept at the Guruvayur Temple.

    We wanted to thank Back2travels company, and especially Mr Ansh, for all that they did for us to make this vacation perfect. We really had a wonderful time. We just completed 5 days; 5 days and 4 night in Munnar, Thekkady and Alappy which was really amazing. We both enjoyed it, all the trips were su
    ch fun, and we especially appreciated that the logistics were all so well planned. Absolutely nothing went wrong, all tours were on time and everything was flawless! The highlight was definitely the Tree House in Spiceslap which was really special, but all of the trips were fantastic. Mr Jobi, our driver was so kind and was really sincere. His suggestions and planning really helped us to make the trip much more special. The hotels and locations were perfect. House boat trip in Alappy was really romantic. We will never forget the cake cutting and the candle light dinner ❤️ you arranged for us for a lifetime. Also the decorations in the room. And thanks Mr. Byju chetta for the hospitality and the tasty native foods
