Introduction to Wild Elephant Valley (野象谷)

Wild Elephant Valley is located in the south of Xishuangbanna Autonomous Prefecture. It is a most visited place by the wild elephants. The mystery, fantastic, and elegant landscape with exciting exploration activities will offer you a one time of life memory. Originally there was a pond where wild elephants always came to play and drink. Since 1988, the natural reserve administration began to put salt there and plant the favorite food for the wild elephants. From then on, more and more wild elephants began to gather in this place.

If you are lucky enough, you can see the groups of wild elephants wandering in the forests at dusk or dawn. In the valley, you can also enjoy many shows performed by these clever animals. There are 16 domesticated elephants raised here. They can do bow, handstand, dance, and even massage.
