We visited Elephant Nature Park outside of Chiang Mai today. They are an elephant sanctuary that takes in and cares for formally abused elephants and a few that happened to be born at the park. They aren't involved in giving elephant rides or putting on shows unlike many of the places marketed to tourists around here. Currently they have over 70 elephants, majority of which are female. We were able to feed, bathe, and get up close and personal to specific elephants that didn't pose a danger. It was super neat to say the least.
