The Elephant Village,Hua Hin

Elephant Trekking

Close to Hua Hin, the Elephant Village is the place to go for an exciting ride on one of nature's biggest gentle beasts. Your elephant's mahout (keeper) will take you trekking to Wat Itisukato Buddhist Temple with its unusual statuary, then through forest terrain up to a mountain top to get a bird's eye view of Hua Hin and the sea, then, wading through a small river, back down again to the camp for an elephant show, which shows off both the intelligence and playfulness of these remarkable animals.
