BLUE TAO ELEPHANT VILLAGE
This unique place is located among the terraced White Karen 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, Northern Thailand.

Where are they from ? ( These giant pachyderms ).
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 village called " Baan Sob Mae Satop", which is located in the middle of the mountain of Mae Chaem District, further Southwest of Chiang Mai Province, Thailand. In the past they were the important vehicles of hill tribe people to carry rice, salt, tobacco among Mae Chaem - Samoeng - Chiang Mai - Mae Hongson.

How it becomes Blue Tao Elephant Village ?
They used to work really hard in timber industry in Northern Thailand for some British timber companies, later they had entered into tourism by carried tourists with the howdah chair on top of their back at some elephant trekking camps in the North of Chiang Mai. Recently, the elephant owners decided to dump the trekking howdah chair and regrouped into a sustainable Eco tourism & ethical elephant experiences with us, and it becomes " Blue Tao Elephant Village " till nowadays.

How do we support community ?
Our project is not only to improve the living conditions of the elephants, but also supporting the hill tribe people who live in villages near our base camp. We buy some agricultural products from them to use for elephant's foods such as Napier grasses, corn stumps, rice grains, tamarinds, sugar canes and bananas. We also sponsor some village' activities for instance Children' s Day.
