Communicating with Giants in The Afternoon
- Half Day
Be picked up from the hotel in Luang Prabang (around 14:30) and be transferred to the village of Xieng Lom. Upon arrival, enjoy some tea or coffee while the guide provides an in-depth introduction to elephant behaviour, their connection with humans and the best means of interacting with these majestic creatures.

After the introduction, begin the ‘cooking’ portion of the itinerary. Spend some time alongside the mahouts and learn how to create delicious snacks for an instant connection with the elephants. Using rice as a base, combine fruits, herbs and seasonings into what is described here as an elephant health ball.

With the food prepared, the first meeting will take place. Embark on a boat ride across the Nam Khan River where the elephants await. The guide will provide instruction on how to approach and interact with the elephants, as well as the best means of delivering their special handmade snack.

Then, watch and observe how the elephants and their mahouts interact and bond during bathtime in the river.

After the bath, embark on a short 1 km trek up Hoy Kang Stream side-by side these gentle giants. This trek is flat and can be catered to clients’ needs or physical abilities.

Enjoy a final drink and snack overlooking the Nam Khan River, followed by the short journey back to Luang Prabang, arriving around 16:30 - 17:00.
