The best in Laos!
From Luang Prabang to Sayaboury, we took the shuttle service. When we arrived we were welcomed and brought to the centre - again quite simply. Sweet little hut right at the pond with a little veranda, oh, it was the sky! We' ve learnt so much about the elephant, the elephant and the work in the centre.
It' not just any place for bulls. You' ll hear from all the places on the LP that your trip to Elephantland (or whatever it's called) helps the bulls, well, it's not. Conduct some online research and ask how many lessons a days the bulls carry around the humans in these cages.
Her ECC experiences will be a true glimpse into the life of the saved bulls. Had I had an unforgettable travel to see the elephant, I would have made the special westbound journey.
