With more than 90 elephant camps in the region, Chiang Mai serves as the world’s epicenter of elephant tourism. According to these standards, riding elephants is harmless as long as the animals carry less than 10% of their body weight, or about 600 pounds for a 3-ton elephant .
True sanctuaries never buy, sell, trade, breed, exploit, or profit from elephants . They never use bullhooks or punish elephants in other ways (even out of tourists’ sight), and they don’t force animals who naturally avoid humans into close contact with them.
(C) Elephants are very big and very strong Thailand has a few wide-open, chain- free sanctuaries (see below) that earn an A+ rating from animal rights groups. Yet, they too have critics who say humans shouldn’t be that close to unpredictable animals.

Elephant Jungle Sanctuary is an ethical and sustainable eco-tourism project based in Thailand. Founded in July 2014, it began as a joint initiative between members of the Karen hill-tribes of Northern Thailand and Chiang Mai locals who were concerned about the welfare of elephants in Thailand.
They are also starved and deprived of sleep, in order to crush their spirits and become submissive to humans. This is an accepted practice in Thailand , and many elephants you will see in trekking camps will have undergone this horrific process.
A socially excited elephant lifts and rapidly flaps her ears and widens her eyes. Tails: Just like a dog, when an elephant’s tail is swishing from side to side swatting away flies, it is happy . As soon as the tail goes stiff, normally held out to one side, it means that the elephant is anxious.
Any activity the group feels may cause pain or bring harm to the elephant —walking a tightrope, riding a bicycle, or doing headstands, for instance—has been prohibited. At the same time, people who do care about animal welfare are avoiding elephant riding altogether because they’ve been told it’s a bad idea.
