We booked this super last minute as one of the cheaper tour companies (1000bht), significantly lower than the rest. We had pretty low expectations considering all these (over the top) reviews. We did the 1 day trek which included orchids/butterfly farm, elephant camp, hiking to...More

I don't recomend this place for anyone. The animals are not treated well. I could observed the scars on their heads and trunks. They are forced to stay all day chained to the tree or beeing ride by tourists. Elephants are really tired and unhappy...More

I must admit that I am dismayed by the variety of reviews. From great to terrible. Seems that the terrible ones involved the tour or rafting and a full package. Mine was great as I simply wanted to get near and touch an elephant. I...More
