The Konni Elephant Training Centre
Konni is a major elephant training centre. Located 11 km from Pathanamthitta , it is a major tourist attraction. The prime attraction here are the huge cages built of wood to house elephants. These cages are locally known as Aanakkoodu and can accommodate 3- 4 elephants at a time.
The trainers here train the baby elephants which get separated from their herd, or are found wounded or roaming in the forest. Experienced trainers using their systematic training methods, tame the baby elephants. Visitors can get a close look at these elephants and can observe and understand a lot about their behaviour, especially that of baby elephants, which are often endearingly mischievous.

Kerala’s famous Achankovil river has its origin in some of the small streams in Konni.
Achankovil and Aluvamkudi are two very ancient temples worthy of visit.
