Location:Mondulkiri, Cambodia

Reason for travelling:The Phnong minority in Cambodia's eastern Mondulkiri province has the tradition to use elephants as beasts of burden for centuries.

Now those experienced elephant trainers also offer services to tourists: Local mahouts lead their steeds which carry visitors through lush jungles to one of the province's numerous waterfalls.

But be warned, these elephants enjoy throwing mud and spraying water at each other and tourists.
