We did our research and found Elephant Trekking visit was worth the money and time. Staff were very friendly and fun. The elephants were treated and looked healthy and not stressed in anyway.

Went with my partner for 30m trekking. The tour guide explained how they look after the elephants: food, hours of work and training. Followed by 15m with Milo, a baby elephant, who was well trained and people friendly. Finished with the trekking itself. Worth it!
