Highly recommend this experience!

Highly recommend this experience! The guides were lovely and set the stage well by giving us a history and culture lesson of domesticated elephants, why they continue the tradition, and then the fun starts. There’s a few hikes and lots of interaction with the elephants! And the provided lunch was delicious and enjoyed from a beautiful view point.


ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE!!! Worth every moment & frankly didn’t want to leave

Fun way to interact with asian elephants.
