Its a non-profit sanctuary for former working elephants. There’s a 2.30 pm elephant show (adult/child 500/400B), which demonstrates training techniques, and one-hour (adult/child 900/700B) and 3 hour (adult/child 1900/1300B) elephant treks. Saddle up and go for a ride on an elephant trek across a river and through the forest, or watch the war parade as the elephants stride past dressed... More

Good for those who havnt done elephant ride earlier. The elephant ride is very expensive . So if you want to enjoy elephant ride you must go otherwise it is not worth going at this place

Nobody should ever go on one of these trips. Elephants are dragged away from their families, forced into chains and restricting small holding crates so they can be"trained" to carry people. Those poor creatures endure abuse and pain. They are intelligent and love their families like we do and they need to browse and swim and hang out with their... More

This is an amazing experience to get up close and personal with real life elephants...... The down side of course is that they are generally chained and also sometimes hit in front of you. The ride through their tourist built track was beautiful and I really enjoyed my ride. I also bought my photograph at the end for 300 Bart.... More

You can go on a wonderful long elephant ride! My only complaint is that the man taking care of my elephant very rudely demanded a tip. Otherwise, I'd give this place five stars. The staff took a picture of everyone on their elephants, and you had the option of buying it for 300 baht. The staff also video recorded the... More
