konni is located in pathanamthitta district in kerala. nearest airport is trivandrum or cochin. elephants caught beacuse of being dangerous to human life are brought here by the forest department and trained before being handed over to interested people. for this purpose trained elephants are used. cages are made of teak wood. it is interesting to visit and be close to the trained elephants and watch those which are being trained. the place also is beautiful.
