They offer a full day elephant encounter program that starts at 8:30am with pick up at your hotel or preferred meeting point. Once you arrive at the park, you will be given a history lesson where you can learn about elephants and their behaviours. Get to walk alongside these creatures, instead of riding on them (a harmful practice still present in Thailand’s tourism industry) through the beautiful jungles, and finally, you get to participate in an exciting activity where you get to feed them. Then, it’s time for a delicious Thai lunch.
Afterwards, guests will also learn how to make elephant medicine, followed by bathing in a natural mud spa. The Elephant Jungle Paradise Park ends the tour with guests and elephants both enjoying a delightful swim in the waterfalls before returning to Chiang Mai.
If you are looking for ethical and fun animal encounters, this should be on your list!
