We did the Saddles Off Elephant Twilight - Half Day tour. It was fantastic. About an hour outside the city in the rural countryside and we had a small herd of elephants ready for feeding and bathing.
The tour guide was great and lead us along the way.
It was great seeing the elephants in a natural habitat instead of being used for trekking like other Chiang Mai area tours.
We started by feeding bananas to the herd, followed up by a quick bath and then a river walk. After, we did a 15-min walk from the river to their home for a final feeding of sugarcane. After we said bye, we had a great Thai meal and watched a traditional Thai dance performance.
Got back to Chiang Mai around 7:30p. Altogether it was an awesome experience and quite fun. Highly recommended!More
