    I feel the elephants are treated very well here. They seem very happy. Baby elephant Jackie was very entertaining. It was raining when I went but still fun. Well didn’t do the 30 min because of the rain. But overall it was a good experience.

What To Expect

Spend a fulfilling day at Chiang Mai Mountain Sanctuary for an opportunity of a lifetime! Start the day with a pick up from your hotel in Chiang Mai, then drive for an hour to the sanctuary, nestled in the jungles of Northern Chiang Mai. Once you arrive at the family-run sanctuary, change into your traditional Lanna clothing, and head inside for an experience you'll never forget! Together with a small and intimate group, learn about these fantastic creatures, and how to care for them! Get a chance to make their food, groom them in a natural mud bath, and even go on a thrilling trek to the nearby jungle! If you choose the half day tour, your tour will end with a delicious Thai meal with seasonal fruits. On the other hand, if you choose the full day tour, you'll go on a longer trek into the mountains, plus get a chance to learn about the elephants' daily lives. Your day will end with a trek to a nearby river, where you can get the chance to give the lovely animals a refreshing bath, before heading back to Chiang Mai. The best part? The sanctuary is absolutely cruelty free – which means no chains, no hooks, and no riding; just lots of love to give these animals all year round - the perfect way to interact with elephants!

  • Kit Man 15 Aug 2018
    a superb activity! Yet it's not easy to walk with the elephants for around 2 hours. the floor is slippery and young kids may not be able to handle. Anyway, it's a very memorable activity for my family! highly recommended. super fun for urban dwellers!
  • Man Keung 10 Aug 2018
    very good experience. Well transport arrangement. If you are fan of nature, never miss this activity in Chiangmai
  • Iris 10 Aug 2018
    One of the best experiences of my life (if not the best). Would recommend it to anyone travelling in Chiang Mai. I like that the sanctuary lets the Elephants walk around and they are not chained or ridden. All in all a once-in a-lifetime experience
  • VAN JEFFERSON 8 Aug 2018
    It was a great experience. I learned a lot about elephants, thanks to our guide. My favorite is feeding them and the trekking part because the baby elephant is very playful. The shuttle is punctual and really adhered to the schedule. There is a canteen selling fair priced chips and drinks.

    Really fun and memorable experience! The guides were really friendly and very inclusive. They looked out for everyone in the group! I really enjoyed my time here :)
  • Marcel 3 Aug 2018
    The day at Chiang Mai Mountsin Sanctuary was amazing. While feeding the elephants banana’s to become friends you feel really clise to these large animals. The elephants are treated with respect and seem to be in good condition. The walk through the jungle was muddy and amazing. The final part bathung them was the highlight. We can truly recommend this sanctuary.
  • Alexander Jr 30 Jul 2018
    It was an amazing experience for a half day activitiea with the elephant. We got to meet a lot of them. feeding them lot of bananas and sugar cane. Walked with them to the nearby hills and play on the mud. Even assist them with bathing. Great Transfer also and value for money.
