  • In the middle of the jungle, about 90 minutes drive from Chiang Mai, we found two local men who, through sound, let the elephants (who walked freely!) come to them. After we had the elephant with baby elephant, we had food prepared for them and given to them. There was in the meantime a delicious Thai meal freshly prepared for us and after this lunch we took with the elephants their escorts and a very enthusiastic guide made a walk in the jungle. Very entertaining. Back at the open place by the river, where the elephants and we had eaten before, we were allowed to wash the elephants. The river in with such kounloading is a real experience! At the end, the elephants without guidance are left free in their familiar environment. The escorts are very caring for the elephants, do not use a hook, just their voices and of course you cannot sit on the elephants. As authentic as possible, fantastic experience with these beautiful animals; Highly recommended!
