I have had the misfortune of finding myself on not one but two Chok Chai tours on two separate trips to Chiang Mai all because I wanted to go zip lining and water rafting. These two things were fine, but their elephant camp is nightmarish....More

We felt very bad for the elephants. They were hit with hammers. And i saw one of the elephant hit was bleeding. I wish I did not go to this tour. I totally wasted my day and was really sad the whole time.
