Truly an amazing experience! The day was part of my Bucket List! Allow yourself to be a part of nature to experience this.....don't go with the Circus Ride attitude! Read their ad to get the complete details. I chose them because of their top-rated Eco environ for the elephants! One on One with your chosen elephant...to be so close, so... More

I visited as part of a group tour. It was truly the highlight of my three-week trip to Thailand. First, we had a play and get acquainted session with the elephants, adults and babies. I just fell in love with the baby elephants. Then we were shown how the elephants were cared for and how to know if they were... More

Best place ever!!! You will regret going with another company. Worth every cent! Would do this every day if I could. All the men and their elephants are amazing. I've done it three times it's the only reason I come to Chiang mai really.

I chose patara elephant farm out of all the other places because of the good reviews and I believed the write up on their page saying they treat the elephants well. The day was going great until I saw an elephant a lady was on in front of me started to wander off track.... In order to get it back... More

This was the best experience I have ever had. We did the 'elephant owner for a day' trip and learnt about how to approach them, washed and fed them and learnt about how to check an elephant is healthy. The trainers live on the mountains with these elephants and spend all day and evening with them to make sure they... More

Such an awesome place! They treat their elephants like family, and everyone is so nice. Nowhere in Chiang Mai can you get one on one with an eleohant for half the day and ride bare back....you can't beat Patara Elephant Farm!

This was a great experience! We learned a lot about elephants in general and about the farm. We believe that this was a quality place that were really in-tune with and cared about their elephants. We had a very personal and up close experience with multiple elephants of all ages. We did everything imaginable with the elephants including feeding, washing... More

Did a half day tour at Patara while on our honeymoon in Thailand. This place is amazing, and a must-do in Chiang Mai. Pick up from the hotel in Chiang mai was nice and easy. When we arrived, we met our elephants for the day. We then spent the next few hours feeding, bathing, swimming with, and riding our elephants.... More
