A half-day package to the Elephant Jungle Sanctuary offers you an enjoyable opportunity to spend quality time with elephants in their natural habitat as well as gain an insight into their history and behavior. It is here you will create cherished, lifelong memories of your time spent with these amazing animals!
You will be picked up from your hotel and will drive through scenic, agricultural areas before arriving at the sanctuary. There you will meet your English-speaking guide and learn a little about the elephants before changing into traditional Karen clothing.
After receiving bananas and sugar cane to feed to the elephants, you will walk with your guide through the sanctuary where you will find free-roaming elephants and hear their individual stories. You can touch, feed, photograph, and interact with the elephants at your leisure while you learn about their lifestyle and behaviors.
After sharing time with the elephants, you will head to Doi Suthep Mountain. Climb 309 steps to the top (For the less active traveler, a tram is available for a small surcharge.), enjoying the truly breathtaking scenery all along the way. You will find Wat Phra That at the very top, one of Northern Thailand’s most sacred temples. At the top, rest and relax while marveling at the panoramic views of the city of Chiang Mai.
