Elephant Trails

Unique Malaysian Riding Experience

Located at the foothills of Mt. Machincang, Elephant Adventures plies the only elephant adventures into a UNESCO Global Geopark in the world. Since 2006, adventurers from more than 80 countries have participated in our elephant adventures.

The Malaysian elephant riding experience is different from those offered in other parts of Asia. Unlike elephant chairs in Thailand or "howdahs" in India, elephant riders in Malaysia will sit inside an "elephant basket," on a carpeted elephant's back. While we were tempted to go the way of our northern neighbours, we have decided to retain a Malaysian tradition.

Adventurers in an Elephant Basket Limit Two (2) Adults per Basket

For safety reasons, we do not allow adventurers on the elephant's neck, or "driver's seat," and limit each basket to two (2) adults only.

Elephant Trail Options

On August 26, 2014, Elephant Adventures relocated to new grounds (about 300m away from its previous location). As a consequence, new trails were marked and these are the trails currently offered to guests:–

The Garden Trail
For a elephant-back riding experience, guests may opt for a 5-minute ride around our Garden Trail that is located within a secondary forest. Our garden features more than 1,000 plants transplanted from our previous location. A "thank-the-elephant" feed basket is included with each elephant ride that turns each experience into a positive one for the elephant and adventurer alike.

The Geopark Trail
The Geopark Trail is an all-new option that takes our guests deeper into our secondary forest. Lucky guests may also encounter local wildlife such as insects, birds and primates but one will not miss the sounds of noisy cicadas in the canopy overhead. Each Geopark Trail will last at least 10-minutes and includes the customary feed basket.

The River Trail
The River Trail is our longest trail at (a minimum of) 15 minutes. On this trail, guests will ride deeper into the forest before crossing the Seven Wells River upstream. It is only at this point that our new trail intersect with our older ones but each trail is different.
