If you want to see elephants in Chiang Mai, this is THE place to do it. It is extremely well-organized (they pick you up at your hotel, teach you about the elephants, let you feed, bathe, and gaze at the elephants, provide an amazing lunch, take you back to your hotel). The price for the day trip may seem high, but you can tell that all of the money earned by the park goes right back to the animals. Lek is one of the best people on the planet--she rescues these abused elephants and brings them to live a life of love and happiness at the Elephant Nature Park. Visitors can touch the elephants, feed them, bathe them, have pictures taken with them. It's not a place to ride elephants or watch them do silly tricks or paint pictures (thank goodness). I tried to go back to ENP on my last visit to Chiang Mai but it was full! I'm so happy to hear it's doing so well and will continue to send donations when I can. Thank you, Lek, for having such a huge heart and for teaching visitors about the plight of Thailand's elephants!
