The Elephant Nature Park is situated in the Chiang Mai province, around sixty-km from the city. It works on a mission to provide a safe sanctuary for more then thirty distressed elephants, collected from all regions of Thailand.
The Park is located in a natural valley which is bordered by a river and surrounded by several forested mountains.
The Park offers various fun activities to be enjoyed with elephants, like feeding, bathing and learning to control the elephant. The mahouts (elephant keepers) are extremely knowledgeable and provide great amount of information, both interesting and educational, about these royal animals.
The park offers various packages ranging from a single day to several days.
They also have educational trips for schools and colleges. One can even volunteer to work at the park for about a week and look after the elephants.
