It's a good place to see beautiful view of Chiangmai City.
Maesa Elephant Camp
It's a commercial camp but how they treat elephant is depends on the
Mahoug or elephant trainner who take care their own. I have noticed that the elephant characters is similar to the trainner. One important thing for elephant conservation is that the elephant should have a rest time in the jungle. You can enjoy elephant riding while allow it to eating during the trek.

The construction of the temple started in the 14th century, when King Saen Muang Ma planned to bury the ashes of his father there. After 10 years of building time it was left unfinished, later to be continued after the death of the king by his widow. Probably due to stability problems it took until mid-15th century to be finished during the reign of king Tilokaraj.
In 1468, the Emerald Buddha was installed in the eastern niche. In 1545, the upper 30 m of the structure collapsed after an earthquake, and shortly thereafter, in 1551, the Emerald Buddha was moved to Luang Prabang.
The city pillar was built when the founder of Chiang Mai, King Meng Rai, ruled the city in 1296. Located in front of Wat Chedi Luang
