Overview

As from 1st October 2017 we are proud to announce that trekking will no longer be offered at Hutsadin, instead we offer our visitors a range of activities that promote a close interaction with our elephants. In a safe environment for both elephant and visitor. Here you can take a bareback ride, walk with an elephant, shower and feed them or simply visit us. We also offer educational talks 3 days a week and a 3 hour mahout experience is available twice a week. Check out our website activities page where you will find full descriptions of the activities that we offer along with costs.

We walked, feed and washed an elephant called Songchran with her her mahout Jackie. We didn't ride an elephant as we think this is cruel. They encourage bare back riding so they don't damage the elephants spine. We learned lots about elephants and got to...More
