Asian elephants are endangered and one of the planet’s most amazing, gentle creatures. While in Chiang Mai, I had the opportunity to visit the Elephant Jungle Sanctuary to spend some time with these gentle giants. The sanctuary is an ethical and sustainable eco-tourism project located of the mountains of northern Thailand. It’s a 2 hour drive into the mountains in the back of open-air van to meet a half dozen of the friendliest Asian elephants.
The company has multiple camps located in Chiang Mai, Phykey and Pattaya.
The activities include feeding them, playing in the mud and washing off in the nearby stream. Overall, this project has excellent intentions to protect the dwindling population of Asian elephants with your help.[sociallocker id=1511]
