Elephants in Thailand
The elephant is the national animal of Thailand. It is an animal deeply embedded in Thai history and tradition. Historically they were used in war and for labour, but these days they are more useful in the tourist industry and it’s probably a lot more fun for them too. A trip to Thailand must include a visit to see these majestic creatures. For an even closer appreciation of these animals, why not clamber aboard and go elephant trekking?
Elephant Trekking in Khao Lak
Elephant Trekking in Phuket is very famous, however, elephant rides in Khao Lak offer the best views and experiences as these friendly giants take you through the jungle and to waterfalls. Visitors are carried on the back of the elephant, led by a mahout (elephant handler). They are taken through lush green rainforest and rubber plantations. When the trek is over you may feed the elephants by hand before heading to Ton Pling waterfall nearby to refresh. Finally enjoy a traditional Thai meal in authentic tropical surroundings. People of all ages will enjoy this trip.
