elephant mountain Anamalai, the "Elephant Mountain," is located in southern India, mostly in the state of Tamil Nadu, though a small section of park does extend into the bordering state of Kerala. It is approximately 400 from the capital of Tamil Nadu, Chennai (also known as Madras.) The Anamalai Wildlife Sanctuary is at an altitude of about 5,200 feet, and consists of a forest area spread over roughly 600 square miles. Most of the trees in the forest are teak, though there are some evergreens.
