Elephant Riding in Mae Wang

About elephant riding , Every times I went to the zoo when I was young, I always stop by to see the elephant because they are big and powerful.

When I watched the elephant show, those trained elephants were so cute and adorable that I almost forgot about their wild instinct.

Recently. in December. I went to Mae Wang. Elephant, Elephant riding in Mae Wang.

Elephant riding ,Camp in Chiang Mai, located on Sanpatong-Maewin Rd.(26 KM) The road is connected to Khun Wang Mae Jon Luang. You can either go to Inthanon and back to the city or stop by at Mae Jam on this way. I chose to go to Sob Win, a 100 yrs old village in the hills. Natures are still valued for its fertility. Mae Wang River is the main stream from Doi Inthanon. Pa ker yaw, Hmong and Thais all live there in unity. For those who want to learn the about the hill tribes and to ride the elephant can overnight at the home stay. First I wondered how elephant riding at Mae Wang is different from other tourist spots, but after I had my own experience, I can’t stop talking to myself that this is really wonderful.

Elephant riding in Mae Wang is unique because the forest here is genuinely productive. The elephant took me to the narrow path where I can be so closed to the fine nature. I saw many kinds of plant. I tried to take pictures as I usually do, but it was too difficult for me since I was on an elephant!

I stopped taking pictures and made the impressions of nature instead. The mahout told me that the elephant riding tour has an important part in changing the villager’s life. The family income was increased after and elephant are happier when they no longer work hard. When elephants walk in the trail, they can stop and eat some fruits from the tree. I had fun looking at them while they ate. If you are not afraid of the elephant, I’d suggest you to try sitting on their neck. You can control them by using your leg to make it turn left and right. For me, it is more comfortable than sitting on the back.Elephant riding in Mae Wang
