Monday Moment: Waiting For Elephants in Khao Yai National Park, Thailand

Khao Yai National Park, ThailandWe had seen elephants at the elephant camp near Chiang Mai but I really wanted to see them in the wild. We headed out to Khao Yai National Park in central Thailand specifically for the hike through the jungle and grasslands where a pack of elephants were known to live.

The hike was beautiful but oh-how-it-rained! We took refuge in a wildlife viewing platform where we peered out into the rain for a couple of hours willing the elephants to show. Turns out it didn’t matter how much I wanted to see an elephant; it just wasn’t in the cards for that day and we returned to town with no elephant sightings.

  1. I know that you have a great experience at Chiang Mai, I think I need also to gain that kind of unforgotten things.. This coming summer vacation is a perfect time for that.

  2. Almost the exact same thing happened to me about a week ago. I wanted to see elephants in the wild so badly but it wasn’t meant to be. To make matters worse, the group that went the next day was successful :(
