The waterfall trek was long but so worth it; & the elephant riding was an exhilarating experience of a lifetime. I learned so much & laughed so much more. I really can’t say enough good things about Samart & the rest of the Spicy family! My only regret is that I didn’t stay longer. Spicy is such a special place & I can’t wait to go back!

Bathing with elephants - loads of fun for elephants and humans :)

Bathing with elephants – loads of fun for elephants and humans 🙂

During the two days you spend with us, you have either two shorter lessons at the elephant camp or one longer. This depends on your schedule and the availability at the camp.

On these lessons, you learn about the habits and life of the elephants. You get your own elephant and mahout teaches you how to communicate with him. You do bareback elephant riding, sitting behind your elephant’s neck. At the end of the lessons, you take your elephant to the river and give him a bath.

Most of all you and your elephant have a lot of fun together and bond with each other!

We will pick you up at your accommodation in Chiang Mai and take you back at the end of the trip. You will spend a night in either a private or a family bungalow at Spicy Villa Eco-Lodges.

  • Elephant riding and bathing

Good treatment of elephants is paramount to our company, so it is our priority to take you to a local elephant camp, where the elephant trainers (mahout) treat their elephants humanely and care about their wellbeing.
