I was informed that this camp was one of the better ones where the elephants were happy and treated fairly. This is not the case! While the mahouts will not use sticks or weapons in front of tourists, they do indeed beat the elephants in secret. I witnessed an incident where one mahout actually bit the baby elephant on its ear and cruelly forced it to perform tricks. The baby screamed in pain. The elephant I rode had bloody holes all over its skin. I really thought this place would be different but I was horrified to find out what went on there. Boycott.
