Welcome at Kerchor Elephant Eco Park

Kerchor puts the elephants first

Kerchor ECO Elephant Park and Elephant Sanctuary in Chiang Mai, Thailand, employs a thoughtful approach to sustainable elephant-friendly tourism, operated by the local community of Karen people, who have a long tradition of elephant keeping and consider these gentle giants as their own family members.

Our Mission

Care for elephants & local community

Local Karen communities have a long history of caring for elephants and consider them a part of their family. We established Kerchor ECO Elephant Park in cooperation with local Karen community in Ban Sop Win, Chiang Mai province. We are not only an Elephant Park but also an Elephant Sanctuary, where we have only our own elephants, but also take elephants like orphan elephants.

Our Vision

Respect for Thai elephants and their communities

By following our approach, we hope to make visitors see how strong ties are between Karen communities and their elephant family members and to spread the understanding of how the elephants should be taken care of, loved, and pampered.
