Fun elephant ride.

Young kids will love this. The gentle giants walk along a kilometer within a plantation of coffee, cardamom, coconut etc. Great opportunities to take some pics with the elephants

The elephants seems to be well trained and well maintained. As we had traveled during the weekday the waiting time for the ride was around 20 min. The elephant ride was around 30 min. 400 rupees for a 30 min ride per head seems to be economical. Enjoyed it with my family.

Easily the highlight of the trip. Got a chance to bathe & feed an elephant. The fun part is that the elephant sprays water on you through it's trunk. Totally worth it.
