The Dee Doke waterfalls
elephant camp, established
by the Myanma Timber Enterprise
in Pyin Oo Lwin, will
hold its opening ceremony on
The elephant camp is near Three-Step Falls, nine miles and three furlongs from Kyauk Chaw-Ye Ywa Road in Pyin Oo Lwin, Mandalay Region.
“We had planned to establish the elephant camp since November. We expected to open the camp in December but could not do so, because we were trying to solve the land issues. Now, everything is fine, and we plan to open the elephant camp on 13 January. The grand opening ceremony will be on 20 January,” said U Aung Myint Htay, General Manager of Myanma Timber Enterprise.
“Safe and secure elephant riding services will be provided to visitors. They will also get an opportunity to feed sugarcane to the elephants,” he added.
The authority is planning to keep six elephants at the camp. An entry fee of Ks1,000 will be charged at the camp, while an elephant ride will cost Ks3,000. The Myanma Timber Enterprise has established 10 elephant camps in Myanmar: Wingabaw, Hmawyawgyi, Nathmaw, Pawlangyaintba, Wawma, Warphyutaung, Natmauk, Chaungtha, Kyarzwe and Mokekha elephant camps.
