Elephant Rehabilitation Centre

One cannot imagine a festival in Kerala without the presence of an elephant. Flanked by the water of the Neyyar Reservoir and the moist deciduous forest and grass lands, the Elephant Rehabilitation center at Kottur spreads over 56 hectares and is surrounded by trenches to keep wild animals at bay. This provides enough space for all the elephants accommodated here. One major highlight of the Centre is the chain free life these mammals enjoy and they are free to roam in well protected vicinities. It houses 22 elephants (including baby elephants) and is taken care of by a team of experts.

Ideal time to visit: 9.15:00 hrs or 15:00 hrs
