Our three day visit to the Elephant Conservation Center, about 2 hours from Luang Prabang, northern Laos, was a highlight of our two month trip through South East Asia. The center is about returning elephants to the wild. Sadly, Laos, once known as the land...More
1st point: yes, do not go expecting this to be an hotel or to be a slick guest experience. As they will point out to you they were set up primarily from an elephant Foundation to look after elephants and the tourism came along to...More

I think most have views of the lake, we were in number 3 with what i think was a good view, some further down the hill might have been better but I'm not too sure but there is a viewing platform like a fale with great views.

Le centre ne propose pas de séjour de 5 nuits sur place. Néanmoins nous y avons passé 10 jours sans se lasser grâce au programme de volontariat. Ayant fait un autre centre en Asie celui ci était radicalement différent, bien plus intéressant. Les éléphants sont libres et ne travaillent pas dans ce centre. Je ne sais pas où vous avez entendu ça mais c’est complètement à l’opposé de l’éthique du centre... et donc complètement faux!!
