These elephants live in a natural environment. However, visitors to KEV have the opportunity to ride, feed and play with these animals, under the watchful eyes of mahouts.

  1. Hi, I was wondering..how did you go to Kenyir Elephant Village from Kenyir Lake? Do you walk or need to use boat as well?

  2. Hi Yusra,

    I went to KEV three times, if not mistaken. All three were in a group tour and we went there from Kenyir Lake by chartered bus.

  3. I’ve been to Kenyir lake 4 times but never visited elephant village. latest being march this year cause of insufficient time. will be there next march and will definitely visit kEV as promised to my kids. to go to kEV is only about 5 mins by car from lake kenyir towards gua musang direction beside main road. you can walk which is not far from jetty but walk in the morning as hilly terrain will tire you. I think its only 4 – 5km + -. good pics.
