Meet your guide upon pickup at your Chiang Mai hotel in the morning and relax on the approximate 1.5-hour drive by private vehicle toward Lampang. On arrival, watch a short video about Mosha and Motala, two elephants who survived landmine injuries, including one who received the world’s first elephant prosthetic. You’ll meet these gentle giants at the elephant hospital and learn about the foundation’s efforts to improve the fate of Thailand’s elephants.

Your guide accompanies you next door to TECC, where you can see elephant moms and their infants at the nursery.

Departing for Chiang Mai, make a brief stop at Mae Ta, a small market selling local goods. You’ll visit Ban Chang Nak, a museum and artist workshop founded by a master carver of wooden elephants. Admire hundreds of works by local artists on display, and later have the opportunity to paint your own miniature elephant during a crafts workshop at the Elephant Parade House in Chiang Mai (additional expense), before hotel drop-off in the early evening.
