We got our very own elephant for the day at the Patara Elephant Farm in Chiang Mai Thailand! After doing some research and visiting it first hand Patara is the BEST elephant sanctuary in Chiang Mai Thailand. We got our very own elephant for the day and became their keeper. We bonded with an elephant with food and a soft touch / petting. After we bonded with the elephant we brushed them down to take off some of the dirt we headed down to the stream for a light bath. After the elephants got a bath we learned how to get on and ride the elephants. We rode the elephants through the forrest for about 30 minutes which brought us to a larger body of water. There we gave them a proper bath and had lunch. It was an amazing experience and we learn so much about the well being of elephants and how they are treated. These elephants get pampered all day everyday.
