Our last destination before heading back to KL. This is mark the end of Taman Negara trip. This unique place will give everybody an opportunity to get close-up with elephants, and also chance to ride them. You thought elephant only can be seen at Zoo, but never thought of visiting their sanctuary.

Kuala Gandah – Elephant Sanctuary

The Kuala Gandah Elephant Sanctuary, located near the Krau Wildlife Reserve, was established in 1985 by the Development of Wildlife and National Parks. The name Kuala Gandah is taken from the nearby small stream running near the electric compound enclosure which houses the elephants during the day from 8.30am to 2pm before they are transferred to the roofed holding area.

My visit was a rare for me, from riding and taking the elephants down to the river and gives them a bath. Or can I say bath with them together?
