Elephants! :D

Is there somewhere where you can ride elephants relatively close to KL?

You used to be able to do so at the Kuala Gandah Elephant Sanctuary, but this has been stopped.

Thankfully no.

[shoot me down if you want] We don't do any trips or things that involve animals unless it is a bonefide 'sanctuary' there to preserve and save animals with little or no human interaction and not making profit for the humans from the elephants. The Kuala Gandah Elephant Sanctuary have come to their senses and realise that to be a Sanctuary you can't exploit the elephants.

We belive that whilst there may possibly be one or two better / good santuaries in the country, most tourists want an 'experiance with elephants' and want that as reasonably priced as possible, so you will find cheap operators, and who knows what the wonderful elephants will be put through.
