Day 01 Living Like a Mahout:  Elephant riding and bathing full-day experience and waterfall

We’ll pick you up between 8:30 and 9:00 a.m. at your hotel and drive you to the Elephant Village Camp, where the camp manager will provide a short briefing about elephants before you go for a 3km ride (2 riders per elephant). Afterward, you’ll start your basic mahout training on how to control an elephant by yourself. For lunch, you’ll dine at our Elephant Camp restaurant; it’s a buffet lunch served with coffee / tea and drinking water (vegetarian options available).

After lunch, you can bathe your elephant in the Nam Khan River. It’s an exhilarating experience, followed by a boat trip to the Tad Sae Waterfall (seasonal)* , where you can relax with a swim in the cool water. Then we’ll give you a ride back to your Hotel or GH in Luang Prabang. You’ll arrive between 3:00 and 4:00 p.m.

* Tad Sae Waterfall can be low or dry from February to August.  The tour is still great and offered year-round.
