Chiang Rai Elephant Safari: Description

Meet some of Thailand’s most iconic residents on this action-packed all day adventure! Ride on the back of your very own elephant and visit two tribal villages to learn about their way of life and the history of their people.

Tiger Trail will take you on a thrilling jungle journey, travelling by long-tail boat and by elephant to visit the remote and culturally diverse hill tribes, on this unforgettable experience.

Our journey begins with a brief stop at the Hill Tribe Museum. This gives us the perfect opportunity to learn more about the hill tribes and to gain insight into their history and their way of life. We then board a traditional long-tail boat, and set sail on the winding Kok River, to arrive at the Karen village of Ban Ruam Mitr. The village is not only home of the Karen people, but also of many elephants, which we will ride through the jungle, on an hour long safari experience. For many, this is a real highlight of the trip, and few experiences can rival the sensation of riding through the mysterious forests on the back of one of these enormous gentle giants!

We make a stop at the Yao village, where your guide will tell you more about the people and their lives, before heading to the beautiful scenic spot of Huay Mae waterfall; the ideal location for a picnic lunch. We take the time to relax and enjoy the surroundings, before finally visiting the Akha village close by; who are famous for their brightly coloured clothing and unusual headgear. It is a truly remarkable experience, to be able to converse with the villagers and gain incredible insight into their lives.

The Karen Elephant Safari promises to be a truly memorable day’s adventure and gives you a wonderful opportunity to visit the hill tribes and to learn about a way of life that is so completely different to our own.
