Caravans of Laos

Laos - Hongsa
46 images


Once known as the land of a million elephants the kingdom of Laos is still home to over 1,000 of these majestic creatures. Half are domesticated for working in the forests, and some are friendly enough to help travellers instead of loggers. A week with the elephants is the best way to slowly explore the forests and the villages within.

Riding elephants is a contentious issue for some people, but a domesticated elephant out of work is not a happy animal. When treated with respect and given the chance to work an elephant will be happy and healthy. More information on the welfare of elephants can be found here:

"Photography is about showing other people how to see, to share the beauty of life. It's not a job, it's a lifestyle. We only get one lifetime, one chance to add some light into the world. Photography competitions are mostly silly. Cats are excellent."
