    There are different packages that vary in cost according to the amount of time, but an elephant ride of about 1 and a half hour is ideal in Thekkady. These can be found at Elephant Junction. 

    In Thekkady the cost of a one and a half hour ride from the Elephant Junction is roughly Rs. 1300. 

    These rides can be enjoyed in any season. Monsoon is fairly heavy in this area however, so it's a good idea to visit in either the summer or winter months.
