Show trip route
The morning starts out with a bath for all the elephants in the river and then an elephant show. The show has the elephants moving logs and following the commands of the mahouts. For the big finish they have the elephants paint a picture. You can see one elephant painting and then the final picture; after the show is completed they sell the painting to the visitors.
We also went up to the nursery to feed the two male babies they have (see the video and pictures). We also stopped at the hospital to see some of the work they are doing to help sick elephants from mine wounds (in Myanmar), owner mistreatment and general bad physical condition.
Each time we see these enormous wonderful animals, we grow to love them more and more.
