Elephant Village, Ban Xieng Lom

(4.3/5 based on 480+ reviews on the web)
Nestled near the winding banks of the Nam Khan River, Elephant Village provides a safe haven for the rescued elephants of Laos. The village focuses on the rehabilitation and integration of the elephants, many of whom are victims of severe brutality within the logging trade. Start your visit with an elephant walk, then initiate your self with some simple "mahout" training--learning commands and gestures to communicate with your elephant. Take a rest in leafy surrounds at the Elephant Camp restaurant, then walk down to the river’s edge for elephant bath time, and be prepared to get wet. Contact the village to arrange your full- or half-day experience, which includes transport to and from your hotel. Make Elephant Village a part of your Luang Prabang vacation plans using our Luang Prabang trip builder.

  • With saccharin as travel agencies participated in the half-day tour. Ride on the Chair on elephant back riding elephants in Thailand, India and Cambodia, but only did. As has been said of other, directly can catch up the elephant. Me let me ride in on the Chair first, down the mountain, reaching the river and directly. Mahout who was taking pictures a lot of pictures. Nervous when you go into the river. Playbill Basha or water in the nose, it is so much fun. I had a large bathroom, wet nice 着替えれば in there. There were people in bathing suits.
