Elephant Junction in
Periyar Wildlife Sanctuary

Programs start from a half-hour ride (₹400) up to full day that includes elephant bathing, plantation tours, breakfast and lunch. This is a better option for interacting with elephants than the touristy operation in Kumily village.
Prices ₹400-5000

Guided three-hour jungle walks cover 4km or 5km and are a better way to experience the park close up, accompanied by a trained tribal guide.

departures 7am, 10.30am & 2pm
