Ever since I found out elephant polo was a thing, about ten years ago, I’ve wanted to go. How could I not? The sport sounded like pure silly fun, and it’s all done (in Thailand, at least) for a very good cause. This year, the annual King’s Cup Tournament, which has been sponsored by Anantara for 14 years, was held for the first time in Bangkok.

Wondering if elephant polo is even a sport? Well, yes, it is. Don't start criticising the idea of using elephants for human entertainment yet, because this is not even close to that. Before moving on, let us tell you something about this elephant polo tournament. King's Cup Elephant Polo Tournament started in 2001 and is a unique adventure sport that's played in Nepal, Thailand and India. In Bangkok, it is played as a celebration of the Kingdom's reverence for its elephants in the most stylish and amusing way.

Locals found an elephant fallen into an unprotected well made by farmers. It waddled in the pool of mud while trying to climb up to the surface. But the well was deep and it couldn’t come out by itself. Lots of onlookers were there just to help the elephant get out but all tries were in vain. Even though the elephant was seen very tired, it kept munching on the food it was given to help its hunger.
