Once you climb aboard the elephant and start your journey, the swaying rhythm allows you to relax and take in some of the most amazing scenery you will ever see.

Tourism assures survival

Elephant Trekking In ThailandToday there are hundreds of elephants living in Thailand and working in tourism. And of course it would be much better if all the elephants were able to roam the wild, but this is simply not possible in certain areas of modern Thailand. It costs approximately £250 per month to feed and care for an elephant in captivity, so regulated and controlled elephant trekking can help keep these animals employed, which in turn allows them to be fed, cared for and assures the survival of these majestic creatures.
