    The elephant sanctuary contacted us the day before pickup to confirm time and location. Once we were all picked up, the guide explained how the day will go. They first took us to the elephant poo poo paper making then to the actual sanctuary. Even thought the tour offers cruelty free experience, the sanctuary is located next to other activities such as zip line and elephant riding which is not something you expected to see. Spent some time feeding them then walking and bathing. Once we were done with the elephants, pad thai was served for lunch and the half day tour was driven back to they hotels. The guide was great though.

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!

    it is good to see the elephants in such closer. they are very friendly. however, the elephants seem have a schedule. they can repeat their actions in 2 hours.
  • Edmer 14 Jan 2019
    It was such a great experience. It wasn’t very touristy and the experience was super genuine. Really enjoyed the time with the elephants.
  • Liling Cherine 13 Jan 2019
    Awesome experience, didn't expect that I'd be able to interact with the elephants in such close proximity. The baby elephant was really adorable and played in the water exhibiting behaviour just like any human child. Spent some time cutting sugarcane to feed the elephants as well.
  • KI CHEONG 11 Jan 2019

    Amazing tour! pickup/dropoff at hotel was prompt and lunch was simple but more than enough. Elephants were so friendly and tour guide explained everything well.
  • Andrew 9 Jan 2019
    Highly recommended for both kids and adults alike. Wonderful to be up close to these majestic animals
  • dirk 6 Jan 2019
    For lovers of nature, good people and good food. I chose this activity to hug, play and feed the animals. The take good care of the elephants! One of the most beautiful memories ever!
  • WEICHIH 1 Jan 2019
    Good experience ever! Friendly treat to elephants and know how they are doing!
  • Luiz Otavio 31 Dec 2018
    That was an emotional amazing experience! Enjoying the company of the elephants and having them playing with us is really rewarding! They did say they take people to different camps, so just be aware of that as Klook does not indicate that. The weather wasn’t hot so the elephants didn’t want to play on the mud, but all the rest was amazing! ;)
