Pang La elephant sanctuary
First elephant1992
AddressPang La Village, Ngao District
RegionLampang Province

Located in Ngao, east of Lampang between kilometers 57-58 on Highway 1, the road to Chiang Rai.

This sanctuary was previously the government Young Elephant Training School, the TECC's precursor. In logging days, the school's duty was to nurture and train calves during the 20 years before they became big and strong enough to drag and stack logs. In 1992 all of the healthy and good-natured elephants at Pang La were moved to the Thai Elephant Conservation Center (TECC).

The Young Elephant Training Center changed its name to Pang La elephant sanctuary, and became an Elephant Rehabilitation Center, a last home for elephants, where unwanted elephants from all over the country are sent.
