  • We had some extra time and drove by this place on our way from Karon Viewpoint. It was a nice stop. Our group of 6 did 3 rides of 30 minutes each. It was lots of fun and we enjoyed being on the elepha...  more »
  • Elephants are treated in a compassionate, we went there because we thought it was an experience of a life time and that it will be because I will never again have a penny to those who treat the poor animals. In our case we made the 45-minute Trek, where after 10 our exhausted elephant refused to continue, writhing and wailing, we got scared a lot. The Guide to make it go forward hurt him behind the ear with a kind of Pickaxe. After our ride for us was discounted given the elephant a moment's pause, instead it was used immediately for another Trek in as many minutes, with a little girl over. YOU DO NOT DESERVE SUCH TREATMENT.

  • Me and my friend walked past the spot on the way up to Big Buddha, where we were greeted by a baby elephant, which was chained to a tree, where it had a radius of 1.5 meters to move around on. It stood all alone, while the tourists took pictures with it, inconceivable they could not see how terrible it was for it. Other elephants was incredibly dirty and had holes in their ears. NEVER visit this place, since it was clear that elephants are not felt good.

  • Animal abuse at its best. Elephants endure so much torture just so people can ride on them. This is disgusting and I do not support this, especially after seeing the mental distress and physical wounds elephants have as a result of this.
  • If you are honestly an animal lover you would go see elephants somewhere that they are treated well. AKA not somewhere that you can ride them. unfortunate but true
  • Don't waste your money. Ridiculously overpriced and not worth the energy. Environment was scattered with beer bottles and the crack of a .308 projectile from the gun range next door. I normally support local industries but this was a scam.. they should be ashamed of themselves.
  • It’s animal abuse. Anybody claiming to love animals shouldn’t ride an elephant. They are abused to the point where it’s safe for humans to ride them. They are not meant to be ridden.
  • Don’t know why someone would ever think this was a good idea. The most cruel thing you could do to elephants.
