  • Elephants are trained for years painfully so that you can ride on you and you can go swimming with you. In addition, the frame for the tourists permanently damages the elephants. It simply unsupported.

  • Me and a friend are gone today on the way to the waterfalls it, these elephants there have done us so terribly sorry. You can see them a little joy or love of life. You are held in small shelters on foot chains and have a heavy frame all the time on their backs to horse riding for tourists. A smaller elephant stood in the middle of the camp (probably still too small to be ridden) this was very briefly chained all day and could be fed for 50THB cruel... we were in the ElephantDreamValley in Chiang Mai and have seen how happy such Elephants can be. There they were allowed to live freely, and because you're there so well they don't run away also. You can play there in the mud and river and were really happy. Please support camps with animal welfare better.

  • We stumbled by chance on this elephant Center and we were very saddened by their condition... we saw many other centres, them, respectful with the elephants, which were released in a pen, without chain. See the mahouts with their hooks is really sad for those poor animals...
