Elephant Dream Valley, Full & Half Day Tour Prices, Chiang Mai Thailand
The Karen hill tribe members are experts at taking care of elephants; it is part of their customs and traditions which are passed down from one generation to another.
They offer a range of activities to suit visitors with varying needs and preferences. The half-day visit is ideal for guests who may want to return to Chiang Mai town by the afternoon and includes elephant feeding and bathing. The full-day visit allows you to walk in the jungle with the elephants at your side, with no riding involved; true to their commitment to responsible tourism. They also have an overnight package which combines elephant interaction with soft adventure while accommodation is provided in the village of the Karen hill tribe; an exciting bamboo riding activity follows the next day.
For the adrenaline-seekers who also want to spend time with the elephants, check out their Elephant + Zipline package, which is one of their newest offerings. You’ll go abseiling from 40 meters high, above the lush Thai jungles combined with a remarkable elephant encounter. The Elephant + ATV allows you to explore the picturesque countryside of northern Thailand on a 4×4 car.
Perhaps the most thrilling of all is the Elephant + Whitewater Rafting package, where guests are treated to a fascinating journey on the Meatang River of Chiang Mai. If you’d like to explore more of the natural surroundings, the Elephant + Doi Inthanon National Park package is highly recommended.
