Wat Doi Suthep: Amazing Sunrise on Mountaintop & Stunning Chiangmai City Views

182 reviews
See the gleaming golden spire and elaborate sculptures of Wat Phra That Doi Suthep in peace and quiet on this serene sunrise tour. Watch the light spill across northern Thailand from one of the region’s highest points, and witness a morning alms-giving ceremony that most visitors miss. Your guide is a former monk, so you'll get first-hand insight into temple life and the Buddhist faith. A delicious Thai breakfast is also included.

We did the half day tour and it was excellent. We got picked up on time and were quickly on our way to see the elephants. The group wasn't too large for how many elephants. You do get changed into a outfit and you are quickly on to feeding the elephants, before making these fat balls for them. You also get to go into the water to wash the animals. There are showers to clean off afterwards and the elephants are clearly very well looked after. A fab day

This was a dream day. The elephants have come from working and groove on the changes made to their lives. The mahouts care deeply for their animals and it shows. I think this was one of the best investments we have ever made in a vacation event. This could be reason enough to visit Thailand.

An oppertunity to interact with these gentle giants in their own environment but only if they want to. Spent the time learning about how the elephants came to the sanctuary and their daily life. Also spent time feeding them and bathing them. An amazing way to get close and observe the personalities and individual quirks of the elephants. Fantastic time in an amazing environment with staff who really care about the elephants they look after.

An opertunity to get close up and personal with the elephants in their own environment but only if they want to interact with you. This gave us a chance to learn about their story and how they came to be at the sanctuary. Also we were told about the daily life they enjoy at the sanctuary and the medical attention they receive to ensure they remain healthy and happy. To spend time with these gentle giants and observe their personallities and individual quirks was amazing and will stay with me forever. Well worth a visit!!!

What another amazing experience here in Thailand. We had the morning session with Woody he was so educated and informative about all things elephants. We fed the elephants, made elephant medicine and fed again, bathed and had pictures with the elephants. It was a nice experience because we were worried about the conditions the elephants could be in after hearing things from people about elephant sanctuary’s in general but this one was amazing. The elephants are left to their own things, Kanta rescues elephants from other sanctuary’s and circuses. Amazing pictures. Pictures are available to purchase from the photographer on site. She charged us 250 baht for all single photos of us. You can take your own phone in and the guide takes photos and uploads to Facebook after the day anyway. DEFINITELY A MUST DO TOUR
