Journey into the Heart of the Jungle

Absorb the crisp mountain air and get a glimpse into the local life as you journey towards the sanctuary. An experienced guide will accompany you throughout, enlightening you about the elephants and the intriguing local Karen culture. Immerse yourself in this experience by donning traditional Karen attire, beautifully woven by the local tribe.

A Day with Gentle Giants

Armed with bananas and sugar cane, befriend the elephants by feeding them their favorite meals, and gain insights into the elephants' dietary habits. Replenish your energy with a traditional Thai meal and fresh fruits, then enjoy feeding the elephants herbal medicinal balls that you get to make from scratch!
