Already famous at home, China's wandering elephants are now becoming international stars. Major global media, including satellite news stations, news papers and wire services are chronicling the herd's more-than year-long, 500 kilometer (300 mile) trek from their home in a wildlife reserve in mountainous southwest Yunnan province to the outskirts of the provincial capital of Kunming.

Gajah-gajah itu diduga berasal dari Cagar Alam Mengyangzi di Xishuangbanna, bagian barat daya Provinsi Yunnan. Pergerakan itu pertama kali diketahui oleh aparat setelah penduduk lokal melaporkan melihat kawanan gajah berada sekitar 100 km sebelah utara Xishuangbanna pada April lalu.
