Inside The Heart of Giant
- Full Day
Start this full day elephant encounter with a pick up from the hotel in Luang Prabang. Transport will be provided to the nearby village of Xieng Lom. Upon arrival, enjoy a coffee/tea while the guide provides a breakdown of the day’s experiences and explains both elephant behaviour and how to interact with them.

After the brief introduction, take a short boat ride across the Nam Khan River where the elephants await. The guide and mahout will help to introduce the gentle giants, and there will be a chance to feed them some healthy treats shortly thereafter.


Elephants and Mahouts will interact and continue their on-going bonding in the river,
while you watch them and enjoy the majestic elephants during bathtime.

Cross through a beautiful stretch of Lao gardens before arriving to the jungle-clad Huay Nok Stream. The trek is not only naturally stunning, but also helps to establish a profoundsense of understanding,respect, and caring for these amazing animals. After the trek, indulge in a traditional Lao lunch in the jungle, followed by a walk to the beautiful Tad Kuang Song Waterfall. Take a dip in the waterfall’s pool, cool down under its spray or spend some time soaking in the private beauty of this natural treasure.

Continue with an interactive mahout lesson, learning how to read and communicate with the elephants. The demonstration displays the special skills each elephant has and provides some deeper insight into their individual personalities. After sitting through the presentation, enjoy some uninterrupted private time with the elephants. Experience first-hand why humans and elephants have shared such an unwavering bond for thousands of years.


Wrap up the experience alongside the mahouts, taking the elephants to their nighttime feeding grounds. After saying goodbye, reflect on the amazing experience and begin the trip back to Luang Prabang. (L)
