We are located in a stunning area of rural Thailand, South-West Chiang Mai in the district of Maechaem. We believe you have found us as you are a responsible traveler looking for an ethical experience with elephants in Thailand.

We feel it is our responsibility to lead by example and encourage the highest welfare standards possible.
