Visited the amazing http://www.elephantnaturepark.org/
north of Chiang Mai in the Mae Taeng Valley. As far as I know this is the only Elephant park in the area where you cant ride the elephants and the elephants dont perform at all, thats what makes it so good. You just get to see and interact with 40 or so elephants in thier natural environment. The park is committed to the rescue and rehabilitation of injured and mistreated elephants from all over Thailand. If you go to one Elephant park in the area please make sure its this one, as well as meeting the elephants you will be contributing to the parks conservation work, besides who needs to go and see Elephants play football? not really thier normal behaviour?
