Elephant Volunteering in Mondulkiri, Cambodia

Elephant Volunteering I have been to Thailand and some other parts of Asia and these big elephant tours are no longer a stranger to me.

It is the most popular attraction in Burma which rivals Cambodia’s Angkor Archaeological Park and Peru’s Macchu Picchu  –  minus the tourism crowds, minus the attention it deserves.

When illuminated by the sun they are...
