1:45 PM
ELEPHANT RIVER SWIM, BATHE THE ELEPHANTS
  • Without any question, this is a favorite among all our guests. Not many people can say they swam or bathed an elephant. Get ready to remove this item from your bucket list. This is an incredible experience, truly majestic. 
2:15 PM
START OUR JOURNEY TO THE WATERFALL
  • They say it’s all about the journey, not the destination.  In this case, both the journey to the waterfall and the final destination are both great FUN.
2:30 PM
ARRIVE AT THE WATERFALL
  • Now, we take a small ten-minute hike to the waterfall. Here, you can swim or sit back and enjoy the scenery. This is one of those hidden spots you would never find on your own. 
3:30 PM
  • After our fun at the waterfall, we will make our way back to the camp. It’s time to freshen up, grab a coffee or water (included), and prepare for our journey back to Chiang Mai. 
4:00 PM
  • Sadly, the day has come to an end. The memories you have will last a lifetime. We start our journey back to Chiang Mai and wish our new friends all the best with their travels. Your support for the Elephant Freedom Project means the world to us.
WHAT IS A MAHOUT
  • Mahouts have been used since antiquity for both civilian and military use. Traditionally, mahouts came from ethnic groups with generations of elephant-keeping experience, with a mahout retaining his elephant throughout its working life or service years. Mahouts would often ride on a howdah placed on the back of their elephant.
