tour description

To commence your once-in-a-lifetime elephant experience, your English-speaking guide will pick you up at your hotel in Luang Prabang. From here you'll transfer to the picturesque "Elephant Village Camp", located approximately 15 kilometres outside Luang Prabang. After a welcome and a short briefing, you are ready for your adventure! Start by being a mahout Lao style, followed by a 3 kilometre trek on foot through the diverse environment. Having worked up an appetite, dine on a picnic lunch in the beautiful forest surrounds.

After lunch, enjoy a one hour walk through the jungle valley, admiring the limestone cliffs as you make your way towards the Tad Sae Waterfall. At the waterfall take the opportunity to go for a swim or just relax. A short boat trip in a traditional Lao longboat takes you back to the Elephant Camp. On the way look out for traditional fishing methods and villagers enjoying the river. Depart for Luang Prabang, arriving back at your hotel between 15:00 and 16:00 hours.
