Hello and welcome to Chiangmai Elephant Home
Our teams at Chiangmai Elephant Home are part of an ethical and sustainable eco-tourism project, located in a village close to Chiang Mai surrounded by mountains and a national park nearby. We have talked with the elephant carers (Mahout) and invited them to join our project. Our special project purpose to take the chain and saddle off of the elephants, like some projects of Elephants nature park. They are our inspiration. All elephants care takers and owner agree to take a saddle off which is a good sign and good start for the elephant welfare here. No more being ridden and treat them with respect. We try to do all the best we can for the elephants, elephants care takers, elephants owner and community here.

WHAT WE USE THE MONEY FOR
Elephant welfare is important to us and it is one of our main goals. With the money that we raise from visitors and donations, we can feed them, provide veterinary care and land for a secure environment. You can ensure that the elephants here have an excellent way of life. With your support, we can provide jobs to hill tribes and local people so they can support their families. Finally improve the quality of their life as well as the community. Some of the money is earmarked to compensate local owners of elephants to let us continue caring for them, instead of making the elephants work. Funds raised are used to maintain the sanctuary and invested for upcoming projects.
