DAY 2: PHO KYAR ELEPHANT CAMP [B/L/-]

Early breakfast at hotel and 1hr drive along forest track to Pyo Kyar Elephant camp. The camp is a small community of timber industry workers and their elephants. Early morning the “Mahaut” elephant handlers gather their night time free roaming elephants from the nearby forest and harness for the day’s work pulling logs from the jungle.

By using elephants in the timber extracting damages to the nature are minimized. Elephants work during the cool morning hours and enjoy free time most of the day. The Oozies take great care of the valuable life partners and are arguably most skilled elephant handlers in the world.

After lunch at the camp guest house we take elephant ride into the forest and will see some skills of the elephants before driving back to Taunggoo for the night.
