Flight Of The Elephants

After three weeks of torrential rain and tropical growth, two metre high walls of arching elephant grass are the only suggestion of a trail. It meanders vaguely away through the unkempt palms of a deserted coconut plantation, it too rapidly being consumed by the jungle from which it was carved. An endowment from the King of Thailand to the elephants, the plantation is the latest addition to Kaeng Krachan National Park, a vast 3000 sqkm tract of rainforest that stretches south along the Thai / Myanmar border.
