Elephant Nature Park
Monday-Saturday 9:00–17:00. (Local time)
Elephant Nature Park is located on the outskirts of the city at the foot of the mountains, about an hour by car from Chiang Mai Old City. The park is a rescue and rehabilitation center for elephants and provides them with a natural outdoor environment. The park has dozens of elephants, which visitors can pet, feed and even spray them down with a refreshing shower. Visitors here can also take part in a four week-long volunteer project where they take care of animals rescued from abusive environments. In addition to elephants, the park also hosts wild animals including cats, Soi dogs, water buffalo and goats, among others.
