This place is amazing! We get to feed the elephants and bathe with them in the river! They cook thai lunch for us and they drop us off at the hostel! Super easy! It is a must!

We got to ride elephants as part of our tour. The elephants are well taken care of. They guide the elephants through the trails and up a shallow river. Great experience.

My fiancé and I booked an adventure day: bike/elephant ride/raft ride. The trip took us here for the elephant ride. I had wrongly imagined it would be similar to riding a horse, camel, or donkey, experiences I've had in the past where the animals were...More
