It was a wonderful experience just being able to interact with the elephants so close up. We had a great day in spite of the weather. Of course we were there in monsoon time so when it rains it really rains, consequently the ground was sooo muddy and the elephants were loving it

This is one of the nicest Elephants rides we’ve been to in Thailand. Exquisite and small privately owned and they don’t force the animals to do all kind of tricks to amuse the tourists. I just love these big animals and they have such a gentle look in their eyes. Pity I left my camera at the hotel but when in Chang Mai we will visit again.

This experience allows the visitor to mingle with the animals in a comfortable, natural setting. The animals are not challenged or forced to do things to amuse the tourist. The elephants have developed a gentle affection for the visitors and their intelligent and kind nature is revealed.

Amazing place, stunning location in the middle of the jungle. Small centre (only 2 elephants) owned by a family. It was a group of 9 of us and it felt very authentic and natural to interact with the elephants. You get to feed them, walk with them and wash them with mud (so much fun!). Half day is good I think.1600 baht which is cheaper than the big centers around Chiang Mai. Also south of the city where there is less traffic. About 1 hour to get there. Highly recommended!
