We came here for a half a day which included feeding the elephants, riding them bare back and bathing them in the river. The elephants were treated very well and the staff treated them with respect. Excellent staff and would definitely recommend!!

I went on the 2-day/1-night trekking trip. There wasn't as much hiking/trekking as I expected, which was fine with me b/c the bit of trekking we did on the mountain was strenuous (very steep)! Really enjoyed staying with the Karen Longneck tribe and the elephants...More
