Phra Chaya Mongkhul (Phrayachaiyamongkol) in Vientiane Ban Keun Zoo (Tulakhom Inter Zoo)
This elephant is refered to as "Xang Peuak", a white elephant.

"Besides his nine-to-five job at the zoo, Chaya Mongkhul also takes
part in special events.

Colourfully decorated he strode along Vientianes streets at the
"Visit Laos Year" parade last November with his Mahout dressed in a
bright red costume guiding him.

Chaya Mongkhuls Mahout Phongsavan, his constant companion at the zoo,
recalled the day with pride, "We had to walk to Vientiane, 70
kilometres in parching heat."
