Mae Taeng on Elephants

Mae Taeng on Elephants

During a day tour that included a stop a an Orchid Garden, the Long Neck Tribe, and Elephant Park, we had the opportunity to ride elephants through the Mae Taeng District of Thailand.

While I wouldn’t recommend this trip, due to the rushed feeling we got from our tour guide, I will say it was quite an experience. While we were waiting for the elephant rides to begin, I was given the opportunity to walk down to the river and photograph a couple elephants enjoying themselves in the cool Mae Taeng River (posted soon).

The elephant ride was quite an exciting experience, with the terrain the way that it was, there were times when I thought my son and I were going to slide out of the front of our seat. The forests and mountains around this area are extremely beautiful and unlike anything that I had seen before.
