I spent a night here while on a trekking outing from Chiang Mai. The camp itself appears to still be under construction but the activities we participated in didn't seem to be abbreviated at all.
We were given the opportunity to ride the elephants up some sort of mountain trail which was admittedly quite beautiful- however the mahouts (elephant handlers) were aggressively moving the animals in line and occasionally hitting them which was unsettling- we then bathed the elephants in some sort of 'pool' which was cool but again quite forced and contrived.
It's cool to experience the animals if you never have before, that being said if you can afford it go to one of the elephants conservation places that are there, no riding or abuse, but close and personal encounters which will surely be memorable.
