Elephant riding

Near the town of LuangPrabang, you can live a day in the life of a mahout, or elephant trainer.

All the elephants here have been rescued from hard toil and mistreatment in the logging industry and after making friends with your elephant, you’ll spend the next few hours learning the commands you need to control it on a trip through the surrounding jungle.
