Create an itinerary including Thai Elephant Home
Spend a day in the company of elephants at Thai Elephant Home. Don traditional northern Thai clothing, pay your respects to Ganesha--the elephant god--then ride an elephant along scenic jungle trails in the Mae Taeng Mountains. Along the way you will enjoy lunch, traditionally wrapped in a banana leaf to carry, take a dip (with your elephant) in the Black Mud Spa, then ride the elephant to the river to bathe it. Back at the elephant home you can also feed, bathe, and play with baby elephants. If one day isn't enough with these majestic animals, you can choose from a number of extended-stay and volunteer programs for a more comprehensive experience. Make Thai Elephant Home a centerpiece of your Mae Taeng vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Mae Taeng trip planner.

  • Do your research before coming here. Even if they seem to be treating the elephants nicely, behind the scenes they are abusing them. Humans should NEVER be riding elephants, this causes severe back damage for them.
  • Amazing experiences to be had here with a small community of elephans and caring staff. I recommend this place for sure
