An elephant calf with its mahout

Taking part in a sustainable travel project makes a trip even more meaningful. Visiting and volunteering at an animal sanctuary is an experience that everyone should experience. At the Elephant Nature Park in Chiang Mai, local mahouts look after their elephants. This elephant calf and its mahout are roaming the field until feeding time.
