Trekking og besøg i elefant Campen

Your guide specialized in Elephant conservation will take you for a rewarding day in the forest surrounding Kalaw encountering elephants, their mahouts and people living in the surrounding.
Young tourism professionals originating from Kalaw decided to set-up a project in Kalaw that is focused on protecting the nature, elephants and traditions of local people living in an area close to Kalaw. In a big part of this private protected forest the nature can grow undisturbed creating a natural habitat for animals that could otherwise be easily hunted down and killed. The project includes creating a natural environment for some Myanmar elephants from this part of the world and helping the local population to grow out of the vicious circle of poverty through education and micro finance.
We go by private car from the airport to the starting point of the trekking and walk leisurely, mainly downhill, through the forest for about 1,5 – 2 hrs.
We arrive at the main camp where the specialized staff will explain you more about their project and daily activities at the camp.
A delicious lunch with local specialities (often from Nepalese origin) will be served in in the camp and you will help planting trees.
After lunch it is time to help the mahout washing and feeding the elephant and we drive back in the afternoon to the Kalaw town.
