The Hug Elephants Sanctuary is a family run project for the elephants. Their vision is that the elephants no longer have to work with the elephant riding parks. They rely on visitors and volunteers to give the elephants the love and care they deserve. And you can experience one of the greatest experiences of your life.
Their mission is to provide the elephants with utmost care, comfort and freedom. Their methods and information are transparent and honest. The health and happiness of their elephants is their highest priority. You can stay with the elephants as a traditional Mahout (elephant keeper) and learn to understand the lives of elephants.
They are located in the Mae Wang District / National Park approximately 1h south of Chiang Mai.
