Elephants, Laos was once known as the land of a million Elephants.
Once these majestic animals were the mainstay of travelling, hauling long distance and logging.
Even as recently as the Vietnam war, elephants were used to supply the war effort along the Ho Chi Minh trail.
Today the Elephant is no longer required for hard toil and is protected. The are a number of Elephant conservation efforts in Laos and many conduct programmes of activities, to help fund their operations and provide their Elephants with stimulating activity.
Below is an example of Elephant activity, offered by Green Discovery Laos.
