Depressing-Please Avoid. June 2014 review says it best! Please read it, I wish I had before going!

The animals should be cared for with respect and kindness. I had to leave because it was heartbreaking.

This amazing place is home to elephants and loving Mahouts who take care of their animals for life. A ride in the forest is an absolute must and it may be that such rides are now getting less and less due to animal rights pressure. We could see no evidence of mistreatment, abuse or neglect. These massive creatures are gentle and would not do as asked if they were not kindly treated. The ride was amazing, short and a little uncomfortable but truly an experience that should not be missed. The staff are very attentive and there are demonstrations of a working elephant. After all that, you can bathe with an elephant, give it a scrub and receive a shower in return.
An excellent place to be up close and personal with pachyderms. Truly amazing.

Set amidst lush greenery . offers choice of packages .However prices a bit high for the elephant ride packages considering the time spent . The mahouts could be a bit more considerate of what the travelers are saying
