Traveling for one and a half hours from Chiang Mai.


Elephant Feeding

As you go higher, the road gets smaller. Then from afar, you see small villages popping up here and there, and one of them is where Elephant Village Sanctuary lies. Hop out from the truck, carry what you can, and walk down the hill to have a little rest. If you are getting tired here, you will be surprised that you need to hike a bit more to your first encounter with the elephants. Here you will be provided with fruits to feed the elephants.


Jungle Trekking to Waterfall

Then we will part with the elephants for a while, and trek to find the waterfall. A little pathway leads into the lush green forest. And before you know it, the waterfall is now in sight. Get change, bring out the swimsuits, and enjoy swimming with natural waterfall slider.


Elephant Bath

We are probably crisp and fresh, but our day is far from over. Trek back to the village. The elephants will march down from the hill to have the mud spa. Get in and join the elephant, splashing the mud on them, they love it. Continue to the bath in the running stream. Grab your bucket and get to work. Wash the elephants while waving for photos for your experience of a lifetime. Enjoy eating lunch provided by the chef of the village, nothing fancy but sure to fill. We have had a great time, but it is now time for the good-bye.


Trek back to the truck and depart for Chiang Mai.
