Historical Snapshot

Hardwood logging was banned in Thailand long back in 1980. After the ban, many of the elephants were left without any job. Their mahouts neither had any social security benefits nor do they had enough resources to feed the pachyderm. Then came the idea of employing the elephants as mounts for elephant trekking tours for the tourists who wish to explore the rainforests in Koh Lanta. Currently, Elephant Trekking Koh Lanta is among the most popular indulgences among the tourists of all ages. You get a completely different view of the jungle from the back of an elephant as it takes you through the woods and the jungle interiors. You also get to know about rubber plantation in Thailand which also provides livelihood to the natives. Learn how the rubber tree plantation serves as a source of rubber. See how the rubber is extracted from the woods as you walk your way through the forest observing the people at work. Get an altogether different flavor of Thailand with the Elephant Trekking Koh Lanta.
