The Elephant Village Sanctuary is home to elephants and their Mahuts, giving them a new, safe home, away from abusive tourism practices that so many elephants endure in South East Asia.
There are nine elephants and mahouts here, each mahout has been the elephants trainer from both their childhoods
Here we go cruising in the Nam Khan, the elephants would splash around and play once they got belly deep
Way too much fun!!
Maxi the baby elephant, he is roughly 2 years old now
Oh, hey there big guy. After noon, the mahouts take them to bath and cruise around the trails for fun
Me and the famous Touly cruising through the Nam Khan, 10 second boat ride to the trails
Beginning to hike to the Ban Huayfaiy village
Beautiful village under the hot sun
There were many kids roaming around, all of them happy to flash their pearly whites
This is their album cover
And this is their manager
Everyone in the village was making brooms, here are a bunch drying in the hot sun
She was no more than five, but working her butt off to make brooms for the family to sell
Coming back from school
These guys wanted candy, I had none, they laughed at me
