Elephant trek is great with children. Guides have very basic English skills, but they trip is good. It seems the turist activities contributes to the housing of the locals. Elephant looks quite ok, but birds and large cats looks a bit sad as in most zoo's in asia

Went for hour treck through jungle and in to the lake. The elephant rider would then let you ride on the head if you wanted to. My daughters loved this experience. You could buy food for 100 baht to feed them on way round. The rider also took photos of you plus their own photographer. A tip to the rider... More

Elephants are not treated nicely. It's torture for them and not fun at all. This place is depressing.

A bit pricey compared to other excursion. You pay for everything. You pay to ride. You pay for bananas to feed elephants, they take pictures of you and they video your ride. Pictures are over priced. But over all a lot of laughs. Only bad thing was elephant handler ask for a tip and told you how much.

The elephants are well treated and you can see those who are healing. The ride is good and even through water; so cool! There is a cheesy Thai dance performance prior. The food quality was quite good. Not easy to find, but wort h the drive. Nice staff.

So I all in all.. I would do it again and bring people back. The driver picked us up from the hotel on time and with a/c van. He was very nice. We arrived and was sold bananas ($100baht a bag). We boarded the elephant and had a great ride. When we got off the elephant masters want $100-200 baht... More

We were there late afternoon, was not crowded, had 2 elephants taking us (2 adults and 2 kids). The ride was shorter than what was told to us, within their compound, into a short stream and some fields then it was along the road all the way, lasted abt 30 to 45 min max. Nothing compared to Chiangmai, but nonetheless,... More
