Overview : 08:00 am leave from Chiang Mai to Lampang, one of ancient cities of northern Thailand. Visit the Thai Elephant Conservation Center, with more than forty elephants lovingly trained for the purpose of entertaining you. You will love the antics of these amiable beasts. The centre also serves as an elephant hospital.
The Thai Elephant Conservation Center (TECC), founded in 1993 under Royal Patronage, cares for more than 50 Asian elephants in a beautiful forest conveniently located near the famous city of Chiang Mai. Beyond being an exciting tourist experience, the TECC is also known for its pioneering work in conservation and science. The TECC also proudly houses six of HM King Bhumibol’s ten white elephants in the Royal Elephant Stables.
Active in Conservation, the TECC operates an onsite Hospital and manages Thailand’s first mobile clinic, treating needy elephants free of charge. The TECC has an excellent natural breeding rate, usually producing at least two baby elephants a year.
The TECC offers many enjoyable Activities. Day trip “musts” include watching elephant bathing, the elephant show and a visit to see baby elephants. Most guests take an elephant-back ride and tour the elephant’s hospital which we are able to provide a trip for you.
