Paul and the crew at the Rescue were amazing. We fed, walked, and bathed the elephants. During this time Paul told us the story about how the Rescue Park started and answered questions throughout the day. Very nice guy!

I am not familiar with an elephant sanctuary with bamboo rafting. We left Chiang Mai at 9 and drove out to the sanctuary for the day then drove back at about 3.
