There is an elephant camp situated approximately 3 kilometers west of the town centre on the road leading to the Pala U Waterfall. Upon arrival ot the camp, you will be introduced to and familiarized with the animals and given the chance to feed them bananas.
Afterwards, you can go for a ride on the backs of these huge beasts. Your carriage will be a wooden bench, that is perfectly safe and the elephant is guided by a “mahout” who sits on the neck. The price for an hour's trek around the surrounding countryside is approximately 800 Baht and includes an example of logging, seeing the elephants take their morning bath, and lunch at the camp.
