ITINERARY: This is a good value, half day excursion with either a morning or afternoon start. Take a gentle trek on the back of an elephant, travelling through palm oil plantation, forest, and along a stream. After feeding the animals, continue on to Wat Tham Seua, or Tiger Cave Temple, where you can independently explore the large grounds, with its many shrines, rainforest nature trail and jungle caves. Around 1.5 hours is allowed for those who wish to climb the 1260 steps to the mountain top shrine – aching legs the next day are worth it for the amazing views from the summit.
Note: the morning session of this trip in particular is strict on timing; latecomers down from the mountain may have to take a taxi back to the hotel, and / or miss out on the elephant trek, depending on what order the activities are done.
Expected group size: 6 – 14 pax, depending on the day and time of year.
