We had a ball at this elephant sanctuary. We had an educational session regarding how the elephants are raised and trained by the great trainers. We were instructed how to ride and give commands to the elephants. We prepared the food and then we fed...More

From what I saw, these elephants are loved. They do appear to have a lifelong human partner (mahout) to help care for them and yes, train them to some extent. Actually, our tour guide said she personally knew the individual who had started this sanctuary...More

One of the highlights of our trip. Bath, feed, ride bareback on these amazingly beautiful and gentle animals. A ride on the back of an elephant on a seat is also available and well worth it.

This is a must-do, must-see while visiting Chiang Mai. You get to bathe and scrub the elephants in the stream-feed pool and learn about their skin and how playful they can be. Next you will get to mount an elephant from the ground and sit...More

No better way to spend a half day. A must do when in the area. Lovely people & gentle elephants. Try to get the small group experience & definitely get in the water & help bathe them.
