Day 3 Phoe Kyar Elephant Camp – Taungoo – Yangon
If you can leave out self-pity, that is, getting up early in the morning, you can enjoy another Detective Ways of Elephant Search. As the elephant can not live by the food provided by the Camp, they don’t sleep near the Camp. And therefore, they are always released after a day work for the night stay in the jungle. Thus, they go freely on their own, eat, search for food and sleep in the jungle. The amount of food they need is approximately 3 metric tons of leaves, twigs and the mother nature of jungle is the food reserve for them. So, early in the morning before the dawn, the Oo Zies or the master, the trainers of them start their search for their respective Elephants. There are a lot of interesting stories to hear fromÂ them and also the techniques of finding the elephants. You should not miss that opportunity when you visit the Elephant Camp it is ‘Merece la pena!’ sort of chance during a visit to Elephants. In the afternoon, drive back to Yangon (approximately 4.5 hours).
The Elephant Show: It starts with the lovely elephants walking on the SquareTeak Beam in a file. It is believed that among all the animals in the world, the elephant walks most modestly and subtly in the mood of Royal Elegance. Therefore, no doubt that the Royal Kings of Burma used the Great Elephants as their Major Royal Transportation as well as one of the Weapons of Warfare.
Being the Overland biggest animal in the world, its strength is steered by the people not only for the battle in the yesteryear, but also in the timber enterprise then and now. In Myanmar, according to the Forestry Departmentâ€™s estimate, around 10,000 Elephants remain both in the camps and in the wild.
At the moment, for the tourists, we normally organize the Elephant Camp visits with two Elephant Camps, Myaing Hay Wun and Phoe Kyar. Both are situated on the vicinity of Bago Yoma Mountain Ranges where timber is extracted mostly with the labor of Myanmar Elephants.
When you visit the Elephant Camp, taking Elephant ride gives you the grandeur of Royalty as well as feeling in the Jungle. Enjoy elephant ride and viewing the fauna and flora provides you with unforgettable memory of your visit to Myanmar. Hearing the stories of the Sin Oo Zies or the Patron of Elephant, is really touching. There is telepathy connection between the Elephant and its Sin Oo Zie.
