Activity Details

Luang Prabang is one of those small yet stunning cities that is surrounded by two rivers and magnificent mountains that create a spectacular backdrop to it. The serenity of this town rouses your imagination with its blend of spirituality and world-class comfort. It has been an abode for fervent travelers who keep coming back to experience the rare mix of tranquility, mysticism and adventure.

Elephant Village has been the habitat of elephants since 2001. It is taken care of by a group of empathetic animal lovers who have been striving to shelter, rehabilitate and protect elephants in Laos from abusive logging work.

These elephants make their own living and also take pleasure in the harmonious life with nature and caring humans.

You will undoubtedly cherish the tours at the Elephant Village that will create memories for a lifetime with these magnificent, majestic companions. Moreover, you will also be helping to create and sustain the livelihood of many skilled people such as elephant food suppliers and care takers, restaurant staff, chauffeurs, boat drivers, tour guides, gardeners and farmers.

This is a half day tour that includes activities such as the bareback elephant ride, visiting the Tad Sae waterfalls in the long Lao boat and enjoying the lunch buffet at the restaurant in the elephant camp. You will come back to the hotel on time to enjoy the rest of the day at Luang Prabang.
