Myanmar Elephant CampIn an attempt to attract more tourists, Myanmar has turned the Thitgatoeaing Elephant Camp into an elephant conservation camp, the official Global New Light of Myanmar reported. The Elephant Camp loacted in in Pathein-South, Myanmar’s Ayayawaddy region.

 

Among the 18 elephants in the camp, six have been chosen for tourism as they are clever enough to pose photos with tourists who can also feed them and wash them as well as travel on them to study the natural environment of the camp.

 

The elephants at the camp once belonged to the state-run Myanmar Timber Enterprise and are now retired from logging activities.

 

Located on Pathein- Mawtin Road, only about one hour away from Pathein, the region’s capital, by car, the camp is also on the way to famous Ngwe Saung Beach, Goringi Beach Resort and Mawtinsun Pagoda.
