Riding an elephant through the jungle can be one of the most memorable experiences you can have in Thailand. There are more than a dozen elephant camps operating in the Chiang Mai area offering everything from one hour elephant rides to full-day experiences riding, feeding, and bathing these gentle giants.

Most elephant rides take place in the countryside outside Chiang Mai and sitting high on the elephant’s back you’ll have great views of the verdant mountains and rice paddies. You’ll be amazed how nimble the elephants are as they climb up rocky hills and wade through shallow streams. Each elephant is led by a mahout – a traditional elephant trainer – who communicates with the animal via signals and words.
