The Mekong Elephant Camp sits on the banks of the Mekong opposite the village of Pakbeng. The Mekong Elephant Camp offers visitors the chance to discover the privileged role elephants play in Lao culture while also taking in the spectacular natural surroundings. The camp offers visitors the chance to go on short elephant rides of 1, 2 or 3+ hours or to go on full elephant trek of two days through natural surroundings well off the standard tourist trail.
