National Parks and Elephants Treks

Posted by karyn on 11/6/2006 at 21:17

I was wondering if you have information about National Parks in Thailand on the site? And are there a couple that you would definitely recommend, that would have accommodations in them?

Are there locations that you would suggest for going on an elephant trek? I don't want one that is a circus type and was hoping for a location in the south and north, if possibe!

Thanks for your reading through the message board for ideas and other answers!!

Hi again Karyn,

We cover some of the National Parks, but not the majority... and while you can do an elephant ride in many places in Thailand, the noprth is the best, mainly due to the lanscape - - the Elephant Centre near Lampang is an excellent spot to visit. But also, any trek in the north can include elephant riding.
