Elephant Sanctuary

Situated beside a Karen village in a densely forested mountainous region, the Jungle Sanctuary is surrounded by spectacular scenery and provides a safe environment with happy and friendly elephants. Full day tours allow more time to be spent with the animals and a delicious traditional Thai food buffet.

Please note that the Jungle Sanctuary doesn’t allow elephant riding as it can harm the animals.
