Get close to nature and Thailand's friendly elephants with this trip north to Chiang Dao. The district is known for its Elephant Camp, reportedly one of the best in the city. Spend some time getting acquainted with these lovely, massive creatures' morning routines, before getting on their backs and enjoying an hour and half's ride to Lisu Hill Tribe village. The path takes you along a quiet river embraced by verdant forests, before you settle into a delicious, local lunch, and then embark on a quiet bamboo raft ride. You'll then see the Chiang Dao Caves - a complex of 100 caves, five of which are open to the public. Glimpse the incredible Buddha images in the interiors. You may even opt for the company of a guide and their gas lantern to light the path and your photographs. The journey wraps up with a refreshing dip in the Bua Tong Waterfalls, and a cool swim by the pool's limestone rocks.

The trip was amazing. Service from klook and local agency are good. Mr. Yu Zhongcheng is really a nice guide. The route is reasonable and had fun with all the activities, especially the waterfall. Lunch was good also.
The trip was pretty well planned and each experience was nice for tourists, especially bamboo rafting that allowed people to feel about the nature. Our guide and driver were so friendly - shared with us stories and history. Our guide walked us everywhere and kept us accompanied which was heartwarming. They even took us to local market when time allowed. Advice was to live to city hotel to reduce travel & start off time. Overall speaking, the tour was fab and highly recommended.
The elephants are taken care of with love and affection by the trainers. We were able to see them being fed and there was a show where they demonstrated the skills of the animal. The hour-long elephant ride made the travel north from Chiang Mai worth it.
