Elephant riding  Feeding elephants with fruits
Elephant riding through the forest. There were three elephants: two adults and a child. They are expert all terrain walkers. They can walk in the mud, in the water, on the steep slope, climbing down and up with ease. If you trek in the rain forest jungle of Asia you would likely use the forest trails originally made by elephants. At the end of the ride we gave them fruits we bought in Chiang Mai.
