Be an Private Elephant Caretaker & Climb the Sticky Waterfall!

★★★★★★★★★★

ABSOLUTLY AMAZING

We started out morning at 7.55am. Kanda and a male friend picked us up from our hostel in their car and we started our drive to see the elephants. We stopped once to get coffee, which was much needed on out part! We arrived with the elephants around 9.30am. Kanda was amazing, she was filled with knowledge about the elephants and their backgrounds. She help us to feed them, teaching us how to make their food. While we were feeding the elephants she was taking loads of photos for us on our phones! We then got to take them for a walk and the best bit, bathing them! Kanda again was brilliant at taking photos for us. After we said goodbye to the elephants, we went to a cute little cafe for lunch. It was amazing and up there with one of the best meals we’ve had since being away. After lunch we went to the sticky waterfalls. We had so much fun climbing up and down the waterfalls. Kanda again was very knowledgeable about the do’s and dont’s of the waterfalls. She sat with our bags while we enjoyed the falls. We were then driven back to our hostel.

The whole time we were with Kanda we felt safe. She was brilliant in telling us things about the local areas while we were driving. Her English was amazing aswell. I cannot recommend this tour more. We will deffinetly be shouting about it for the rest of our travels.

Explore Doi Inthanon & Mae Ya Waterfall to See Sunrise at the Highest Spot in Thailand!

★★★★★★★★★★

Incredible day in the nature

Everything went smoothly from the beginning. A day before our trip we got a message from Kanda for more specific instructions for what to bring with us etc. Kanda and his husband picked us from our hotel at 4.30 as planned and she had brought us hot buns and orange juice for breakfast. We exchanged a few words but then she let us sleep during the trip to the mountain (we were very sleepy and this was appreciated). She took care of all the payments during the trip including entrance fees so we didn't have to worry about them (or anything).

We arrived at sun rise watching place early and had time to use the toilets and talk. She also had warm coats for us, which were necessary even though we are Finns and are used to cold. The sunrise was beautiful and there was not too much tourists around us, mostly local tourists.

After this we headed to pagodas. We were the first group to get there so it was very peaceful and serene! At this time of the day the pagodas were even more beautiful than in all the pictures we had seen. We had about an hour here. After this, we grabbed a little snack here and then headed for the trekking part.

The trekking part was our favorite, the scenery is so beautiful it is hard to describe it, you have to see it yourself. The trek was in good shape and easy to walk. We saw several monks here and not a single western tourist.

The next stop was a local market, but we were not that interested in shopping so we stopped only briefly to have a look at it and then continued to drive to the waterfalls. At the first waterfall we had lunch, the food was authentic and good and Kanda paid for it. We spent some time here and then headed for the biggest waterfall in Chiang Mai. It was about an hour drive here which might be one reason there wasn't almost any people even though it was very beautiful and powerful. In addition to us, there was only a few Thai families on a picnic. There was a chance to swim if you wanted to and the water looked clean but we didn't have swimming suits with us and were a bit tired so we decided to skip this and left for hotel instead.

All this time, Kanda took very good care of us and asked if we wanted to slow down/grab a bite/use a toilet and so on. She told us interesting things of the nature and Thais and answered all of our questions. She speaks very good English and is very intelligent and fun. She really seemed to be enthusiastic of the trip herself and photographed the nature and us a lot. She sent us the pictures and videos later which was a nice add. I honestly can't make up a single complaint of this trip. It was well worth the money and the best thing in Thailand this far (and maybe one of the most beatiful days I have ever spent). We usually prefer to do trips like this without a guide but there is no way we could have spent a day like this ourselves even if we had planned it for days. Kanda was very good company: she left enough room for us to just be in our thoughts and marvel the surroundings but was always ready to chat about anything. If we ever come back to Chiang Mai again, we will be joining his tour, no matter what it is! Thank you so much for this amazing day!
