Travel through a national park and stunning mountains inhabited by local hill tribes until you arrive in our unique village. Meet your homestay family, our friendly staff and the other volunteers, immerse yourself in hilltribe culture by cooking with your homestay and learning how to basket weave from one of the elders in the village.
Day 2: Wake up early to hike in the forest and find our elephants. Once we find the elephants we will spend the morning observing, recording and learning about these amazing animals and their natural behaviours.. Have lunch in the forest with the elephants. Return to the village late afternoon and learn more about our work, the local language and culture, and you might even get the opportunity to take part in our community & teaching projects.
Day 3: Another early start to hike to observe our elephants one last time. Return to Chiang Mai in the afternoon.
