  Elephant trek...
by leebee1

Everyone always asks me where you can do the elephant trek in the North...

I booked a full day tour through my hotel. These tours can be booked before you leave home through your travel agent, or a few days prior through your hotel.

My day tour was a combined one. I was picked up in the lobby of my hotel and from there we went to the Orchid Farm. After that we proceeded to the Elephant Training Centre in Chaing Dao, where we watched a bit of an elephant show. From there we went on our trek which Went for an hour or two (cant quite remember how long?). Afterwards we had lunch and rafted down the Ping River, before the drive home and being dropped off at my hotel.

All in all it was a very good day, and I would recommend it. My sister went to Chaing Mai 2 years after me, and done the same tour. I think if you asked specifically for the tour combining the Orchid Gardens you will find it easily enough!

Directions: Ask your travel agent before setting off or your hotel upon arrival.
