I was very relectuant to go elephant trekking. At first I wasnt keen, but as the ride went on I was happy.
The instructor tells the elephant commands and the elephant responds. He also touches his ears. I was worried about what people were saying about the metal rod they use. Our instructor had to use it once, this was because the elephant was trying to go off route down a steep hill. Dont forget you are on a huge, tall elephant, its a dangerous activity. If the instructor didnt have this, god knows what could of happened.
The ride is pretty steep, but when your at the top, you have amazing views.
Afterwards, we showered the elephant and gave him water and bannanas. The elephants look well looked after. Enjoyed the day :)
