My favorite part of the trek was the elephant ride. 

The elephants we rode on seemed very well treated and fed… but it’s always hard to tell.  Elephants are no longer really being used in day-to-day manual labor like they were before.  As keeping an elephant is very expensive, the best hope for these amazing creatures in Thailand is (responsible) tourism.
