The best elephant riding in Northern Thailand

These Maetaeng elephants will take you on an unforgettable journey walking with their incredible sure footed swaying motion through rivers and forests and back to the park.

This is guaranteed to put a smile on your face.

Along the way local villagers have set up stalls to sell food for you to feed to your elephant. We do not encourage this as the elephants then get upset if they get to these stalls without being fed something. We are trying to work with the local villagers to find a better solution. In the meantime feel free to treat your wonderful elephant to a snack along the way.

  • We take every precaution to ensure that you and your elephant will have a safe and enjoyable ride
  • We ask you to respect the elephants and take note of instructions by their mahouts at all times
  • There are plenty of photo opportunities along the way and your Mahout will jump down and take pictures for you
  • The Elephant Ride is included in all park visit packages except the Mahouts Elephant Experiences

Check out the packages and rates and avoid disappointment by booking on line as soon as possible.
