Help Bathe Elephants (3/8)

The beautiful animals are prevalent in Myanmar, and there are lots of chances to interact with them, like at The Green Hill Valley Elephant Camp. There, you can enjoy the magnificent creatures safe in the knowledge that this is an animal-friendly environment operated with the principles of sustainable tourism in mind. 

Surrounded by the stunning, forested scenery of Kalaw, guests will meet, feed, wash and interact with the resident elephants – who are cared for by the mahouts (elephant caretakers) and the resident vet. These elephants have been rescued from the logging industry – having been retired by the government – and are now living out their senior years in the peaceful sanctuary of Green Hill Valley.
