Tour Detail:

Duration: 8.30-16.00

From Chiang Mai we head north and then make our first stop at Mae Malai Market to get some food for elephants and snacks for us. Continue on another 25 minutes we arrive at elephant camp. Next, you will be introduced to elephant trainer and start learning how to speak to elephant with some basic words. You will change your clothes to Mahout (elephant trainer) clothes. After that you will meet your elephant and have a chance to practice some commands that you just learnt. Practice few different ways of getting on and off elephant. Then it is time to make a journey bareback on your elephant through the bush and down to the river where you are then given bucket and brush to bathe your elephant or you will perhaps get sprayed water by elephant as well. Return to the camp and say good bye to your elephant. After that you will have fun with an hour white water rafting on Mae Taeng River, which has plenty of calm, relaxing water and some moderate class 3 rapids surrounded by beautiful scenery. After lunch at local restaurant, we will drive 10 minutes to Long Neck Village. Here you will see the most distinctive tribe in the region, Kayan-Long Neck people, as well as other hill tribes such as Akha and Yao. Later, if you would like to visit Tiger Kingdom we can take you there without extra charge. But if you would like to go inside enclosure to play or have pictures taken with tigers you will need to pay for your tickets. We then make our way back to Chiang Mai.
