Notes: While it is possible to have elephant rides at some of the sites on our trip, AdventureGreen strongly suggests our travelers to skip elephant riding trips. It is just that for the last 20 years there have been no single successful elephant births as the baby elephants have always been dead before they are born. This is somehow attributed to several reasons one of which is over-exploit of the mother elephants for logging and carrying tourists.
