Elephant Trekking in Laos

February 7, 2013 by Khiri Travel | Filed Under: , , , , ,

Although historically known as the “Land of a Million Elephants,” Laos is gradually losing its biggest and most regal animals to human development. The Elephant Village is investing in community eco-programs in Luang Prabang to give Lao elephants a new home. As forests disappear, the elephants used to log them can become neglected. The aim of the project is to give these elephants a brighter future. So far, many elephants have been freed from logging work and given a new home in the park. Experienced mahouts (elephant trainers) and veterinarians help the elephants adapt to their new environment.

This project makes a perfect addition to any program and is suitable for the young and the young at heart!
