BLUE TAO ELEPHANT VILLAGE
This unique place is located among the hill tribe rice paddy fields, natural streams, waterfalls, large beautiful pine woods and lush
forest of the backside of Doi Inthanon Mountain, Southwest of Chiang Mai.

WHERE ARE THEY FROM ? ( Majestic elephants ).
They are the important treasure from the White Karen hill tribe ancestors since 400 years ago, from generations to generations until
nowadays. The original village of these elephants is a small White Karen tribe village called " Baan Sob Mae Satop", it is located in the
middle of the mountain jungle of Mae Chaem District, further Southwest of Chiang Mai Province, Thailand. In the past they were the
important vehicles for hill tribe people to carry rice, salt, tobacco among Mae Chaem - Chiang Mai - Mae Hongson.

They used to work really hard in timber industry in Northern Thailand region for some British timber companies, later they had entered
into tourism by carried tourists with the howdah chair on top of their back, then became a part of team elephant shows in some large
elephant safari camps in the North of Chiang Mai. Nowadays the Karen hill tribes who own the elephants decided to dump the trekking
howdah chair and regrouped into an Eco tourism way at Blue Tao Elephant Village.
