At a distance of 10 Kms from Pathanamthitta, Konni is famous as an Elephant Training Center. It is located near Iravan village (less than 1 Km) on SH67 between Pathanamthitta and Pathanapuram.

Located in thick forest environment, this training center was used to train wild elephants. However, this place is not used for elephant trainings any more. The big wooden cages used to put newly brought wild elephant for training are still an attraction. Elephant safaris are available at this place along with adventurous trekking programs. Konni has the largest wild elephant population in Kerala.

This place is connected by frequent bus server with Pathanamthitta.
