Elephant Trekking on Koh Lanta

Page Navigation
Day-trip Details



Stop press - after recent bad feedback about this daytrip, we no longer recommend it.

The negative feedback is that the trip is pretty boring. If you have children with you and you are only visiting Lanta then this trip will suffice to keep the children happy, but it is not one of the best trips in the country - these are at Khao Sok and near Huay To waterfall at Phanom Bencha National Park.

lanta elephant When Thailand banned hardwood logging in 1980, many elephants became unemployed.  Before anybody could decide which social security benefits they qualified for, however, someone had the bright idea of moving them all to the tourist areas in southern Thailand and employing them as mounts for elephant riding tours.


There is now a small herd of elephants on Koh Lanta, living happily in the island’s jungle-clad interior. The elephant trekking here is not the very best in southern Thailand (that is to be found at Khao Sok), but it is well-organised and popular with visitors, particularly children, and the animals are well cared for and not bullied and beaten with steel bars, as is the case in other destinations in Thailand.

Trip Details

lanta elephant

We offer a one-hour elephant trek. The elephant trek trip runs every hour, starting from 9am and finishing at 3pm. The trip takes a total of 2 hours, depending on where we pick you up from. Enjoy a one hour elephant ride though the lush tropical rainforest at Phra Ae Camp. Watch and participate in the feeding of the elephants.

Feeding them is pretty boring compared to bathing and swimming together, as you can do after the elephant trek near Huay To waterfall in Phanom Bencha National Park near Krabi Town.


THB 1,000 / adult, THB 500 / child (5 - 11 years old). Children 4 years old and under are free of charge.

The tour price includes hotel transfer, a guide, drinking water and insurance.
