This fantastic sanctuary is located in Baan Lao, north of Chiang Mai where Lek Chailert – our founder spent her childhood. The sanctuary is home to four female elephants rescued from elephant riding camp. Nong Pop is 27 yrs, Mae Pond is 37 yrs, Kham Paeng 47 yrs and Kha Ting Daeng who was rescued in late 2017. Mae Pond and Kham Paeng are best friends, Nong Pop is so sweet and very friendly to people. Kha Ting Daeng has now formed the relationship with the other elephants. Four of them enjoy spending time on the mountain top, grazing on the tall grass. They are socializing and interacting as a herd. We are delighted to see elephants living peacefully in the most beautiful surroundings and fed by variety of plants grown at the project.
It is truly amazing to visit our ladies, take mountainside walking with elephants, feed them with bananas, refresh in the pond on top of the mountain with elephants hanging around and sitting near elephants to observe the herd living tranquilly.
