Memorable Experience

The LIFE program developed by the Mahouts Elephant Foundation provided me the chance to be closely immerged in a small Karen community.

I took all my meals with them and discovered their main activities like handloom, bamboo weaving, tobacco processing, forest harvesting operations and habitat conservation.

I also could appreciate the fundamental importance of the elephant for this community and how the mahouts care their “companions”.

Besides this genuine experience, staying in a remote village provides suitable conditions for introspection and relaxation.

The lodge accommodated by the Foundation is clean, functional and provides you enough comfort you need for such experience.

Potable water is available. As the lodge is equipped with solar panels, I would recommend to get a power bank and some extra batteries.

What would you improve about this program?
Could be interesting to provide some historical data about the Karen, what is their origin... to better understand today's situation
