Super knowledgeable guides. They seem to be really in to making people aware of the crimes greedy people in SE Asia can commit against those poor animals. All the elephants were victims of miss treatment before and now they live in this retreat resort. Everything...More

What an amazing day, if you visit Chiang Mai then I can’t recommend this highly enough. The elephants were amazing I would recommend the trek with the elephants as it allows you to get up close to them.

We went into this program with the wrong expectations. Not good or bad just different. So here’s what to expect- working for the week you are mostly behind the scenes. Every morning you clean out the elephant shelters then you have free time before lunch,...More
