Chiang Dao Elephant Jungle Trek & River Raft

  • Duration: 8 Hours (approx.)

Have an unforgettable adventure in Chiang Dao’s tropical jungle: Ride an elephant with an experienced mahout, discover a traditional village, join a river-rafting tour, relish a delicious Thai lunch, and visit Mae Sa's Orchid and Butterfly Farm on this full-day excursion.

Depart from your centrally located Chiang Mai hotel and travel to the Chiang Dao Elephant Camp—a refuge and training space for elephants. Start your adventure into the rural jungle by riding on an elephant with an experienced mahout before continuing your exploration on foot.

Take an educational excursion to the remote Lisu hill-tribe village. An ethnic group originating from Tibet, the Lisu people introduce you to their daily lives, customs, and heritage. Afterward, enjoy a tranquil rafting voyage across the Ping River in the midst of exotic flora and distinctive fauna native to Thailand’s tropical rainforest.

Break for a delicious Thai lunch at a local restaurant before visiting Mae Sa's Orchid and Butterfly Farm. Take time to wander around this beautiful setting before you journey back to your hotel.
