Our time with the elephants was a once in a lifetime experience. I appreciated the info we got on the very good treatment the elephants get at Phang Nga, I wouldn’t want to reward a park that mistreated them. Very fun. Very informative

Chose this park as it located within the National Park and status is an "ethical" park, not a sanctuary which can often be misleading. We opted to walk, feed and bathe the elephants and it was the most incredible experience. Jess (volunteer) was an absolute...More

It's included in the package and it's only about a 20 minutes trek both way. You can also walk beside the elephant if you don't want to ride it.
