Once Mandalay Region sees a spike in tourism in the coming high tourism season, creating the mountain viewpoints for Wanet Elephant Camp on the way to Yeywa Dam between Mandalay and PyinOoLwin townships will be undertaken, said U Toe Aung, assistant manager, in charge of Wanet Elephant Camp under Myanma Timber Enterprise.
As the high season is approaching, we will prepare the recreation sites for homegrown visitors and tourists to enjoy the elephant ride and the natural scenic beauty. The viewpoints aim for the travellers to explore the bird’s eye view of Mandalay city, Dokhtawady River and Shwesayan Pagoda. The travellers can enjoy the natural fresh air, mountain view and hiking experience.
“Under the approval of the regional government, the camp has resumed its tourism service for the tourists and domestic visitors from 27 April 2022. It receives 20 local visitors during the weekend. The number is expected to increase three folds in the coming season. Shade trees are also planted and a bench is also installed under the trees. Recreation sites and facilities will be prepared for the visitors,” he elaborated.
There are a total of eight elephants at the camp. Elephant lovers donated the feed through digital payment. It costs K50,000 for the elephants’ feast. The visitors can observe the natural scenery by elephant ride. A short trip is estimated at K3,000 while the elephant ride for a long-distance trip costs K5,000. — Maung Aye Chan/GNLM
