Elephants are one of the main attractions at Periyar National Park. Sabrina, our daugther could not miss her favorite adventure in our trips. Elephant ride! We opted for the Elephant Junction located in Murikkady (30 minutes drive from the Spice Village). It is a very busy place so I suggest you book at least one day in advanced, unless you don’t mind waiting 2 – 3 hours. There are many activities you can do with the Elephants from riding to washing with the elephants. The views are stunning! It is a journey through spice gardens, hills draped in lush greenery and washed in fresh spice scented air of Cardamom, coffee and pepper. I highly recommend at least one hour ride to experience the panorama of the hills. The staff is very helpful they are willing to take pictures for you and even film you.
