The atmosphere is natural. If you’re worrying about how these elephant live, you’re worrying for nothing. These elephants live happily for sure. They live their natural lives. At the elephant camp, there are trees, grass, and water resources for them. They don’t have to walk on burning concrete floors. Everything is peaceful, for both people and elephants.
As soon as you get there, first, you would want to ride on an elephant’s back. Now, riding elephants at this place is quite different from other elephant camps. Other elephant camps regularly put seats on elephants’ backs before letting tourists ride on. But, basically, at Thom Phai Elephant Camp, there aren’t any seats on elephants’ back. Tourists just have to ride on elephants’ bare backs.
Each of elephants contains 2-3 tourists, one on the elephant’s neck and two on the elephant’s back. It requires only 400 Bah per person. However, if you want a seat on an elephant’s back, that’s fine. You just have to pay more money for it.
