We are setting up a project in the Kalaw area which is focused on protecting the local ecology, elephants and traditions of the local people.

Nature grows undisturbed in our private preserved, where we plan to include a Myanmar elephant camp. We are offering the opportunity to learn about Mahouts and their Elephants, as well as seeing elephants in their retirement at their home land in nature.
In addition, we have created trekking routes through the forest. Local trekking guides lead excursions form Kalaw to the elephant camp. So far we have prepared 3-4 different treks and we connect with our main camp. Along the way, clients will be introduced to local village traditions and to the natural beauty of the surrounding forest. The area is known for fauna (birds, butterflies) and flora (orchids, teak and bamboo forest). Trekking programs range from easy to more strenuous.

It is our intention to support and improve the health and education of the local villages. We also wish to maintain the natural environment by re-planting and conserving of the forest. Our main camp is located 16 miles (25kilometers) down from Kalaw and it is a 45 minutes drive by car.

We have created the following programs for Elephants in nature.
