Maeklang Elephant Conservation Community - Two days

Who never dreamed about a place where humans and animals would live in harmony? In Maeklang Elephant Conservation Community, we have created this special place for our elephants to retrieve their natural habitat and for you to meet them in a sustainable way.

Hidden in the jungles of Doi Inthanon mountain, we have created two eco-friendly sanctuaries for our dear friends. Without any rush, you will have time to feed them with organic food, taking them for a mud bath, splash them in the river and of course relax and observe their behavior. In the end of the day, you will know everything about the circumstances that brought them to this sanctuary and how our wonderful team cares about these gentle giants.

We will spend the night at the Maeklang Elephant Sky Camp and sleep in a traditional Thai bungalow right by the river. The elephants will stay close to your bungalow and wake you up in the morning for breakfast.

Do yourself and our elephants a favor and do not leave Chiang Mai without a visit to the Maeklang Elephant Conservation Community!

Children 4 - 9 years of age can join the trip for 2500 Baht per person. Children 1 - 3 years of age can join the trip for free.
