Traveled in the year 2010 along with my parents. Had an elephant ride at a very nominal rate. The elephant was really very cute & friendly. Our elephant rider helped take lots of photos & we have a good memory of this place.

I absolutely love elephants so I just paid a quick visit for some photos - am not into those usual tourist offers such as riding them, doing the wood, the water spraying etc. The elephants looked well after as far as I could see but one of course doesn't know what happens when the gates are closed….

Its worth the wait of 20 mts promise which will drag on to 1 to 2 hrs , but its once a life time experience , so go for it . You will love it more with family and friends .

Rode an elephant through their jungle here. The elephants are treated kindly (as far as I saw) and their handlers just talk to them instead of hitting them. We were allowed to feed thereby putting bananas in their mouths. Definitely, something you should do while here.

Good life time experience of riding on a elephant. Good Photos that were clicked by the person are good.

A wonderful experience, elephants are very well cared for and looked after. They seem happy, especially when they get a bath! I recommend the bath and shower, although it's imperative you take a full set of clothes to change into. A hot shower and towels are provided.

I enjoyed the ride but i felt pity for the elephants there. the elephants looked tired when i asked the person there to make elephant rest for some time (on my time) he refused to do so.
