I've seen lots of review saying the elephants are mistreated here. This is not really true, if you consider that an elephant is an animal, and not a cartoon character with high IQ, very active social life and a strong sense of ethics. Yes, some of them are chained, the younger ones. Keep in mind that there are a highway and a road nearby. So better keep them away from careless drivers around. I've checked some of the elephants skins, and seen no trace of wounds of any kind. During my visit, a young mahout was teaching an elephant the hard way, and it took almost no time before an older mahout kicked the youngster's butt.
This said, it costs about 800B per person, including the elephant bath. Take the bath, you won't be disappointed. Bring dry clothes either. You will get soaked, hair to toe. There's also a short show before going to trek, featuring baby elephants. Very funny. Elephants have a good sense of entertainment.
